One high school, one junior high school and two elementary schools in the Arlington ISD were named 2016 Texas Honor Roll Schools for demonstrating consistently high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement over time and reduction in achievement gaps.

Arlington Collegiate High School, Shackelford Junior High and Duff and Little elementaries were among 727 public schools in Texas to receive this title. The Honor Roll is part of a national effort to identify higher-performing schools and highlight successful practices that improve outcomes for students.

For high schools, the Honor Roll also includes measures of college readiness.

“This recognition clearly demonstrates that students at Arlington Collegiate High School, Shackelford Junior High, and Duff and Little elementaries are all achieving at an exceptional level,” Arlington ISD Superintendent Dr. Marcelo Cavazos said. “We are proud of them for receiving this significant recognition.

"Without teachers, staff and administrators who work tirelessly, set high expectations and create a positive culture that promotes continuous improvement, this would not be possible.”
