Four of those — George Peabody Elementary, George Bannerman Dealey International Academy, School of Health Professions at Yvonne A. Ewell Townview Center, and Victor H. Hexter Elementary School — are in Dallas ISD. The other (The Classical Center at Brandenburg Middle School) is part of the Garland school district. Nationally, 314 schools made the list, 26 in Texas. It’s a big deal:
The award, given by the U.S. Department of Education, recognizes schools that excel or make dramatic improvements in the face of high poverty and other challenges.
You may recall that Tim’s kid attends Hexter. This year, I enrolled mine as well. This underscores my satisfaction in the decision to do so. Congratulations to all schools on being recognized.
