The award was established in 2000 to draw attention to those public schools that are performing at the highest levels. Being named a TBEC Honor Roll school is the most prestigious academic award a Texas public school can receive. It recognizes schools that have demonstrated three or more consecutive years of high performance in all subjects compared to other schools serving similar student populations.
In addition to having a high percentage of students meeting state standards on all tests for at least three consecutive years, TBEC Honor Roll schools also have the highest percentage of students performing at the state’s most rigorous standard: commended on all tests.
This year’s event included a half day of seminars for attendees followed by a reception at 6 p.m. and the awards dinner at 7 p.m. George West Primary was one of only two schools in the state to receive the award ten years in a row. The full list of schools can be found on TBEC’s website at www.tbec.org
