Harmony wins prestigious Honor Roll Award: HSE has been named to the Educational Results Partnership 2018 – 2019 Honor Roll for its high achievement in student success. The program is part of a national effort to identify higher-performing schools and districts that are improving student outcomes. Schools that receive the Honor Roll distinction have demonstrated consistent high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement levels over time, and a reduction in achievement gaps among student populations.
In Texas, the Honor Roll program is supported by numerous businesses and organizations, including the Texas Business Leadership Council, American Automobile Association (AAA) Texas, Macy’s, Wells Fargo, Chevron Corporation and Enterprise Holdings Foundation.
To access the Honor Roll, visit www.edresults.org
