Hudson PEP Elementary and Foster Middle have been honored by the Education Results Partnership (ERP) as 2016 Honor Roll schools for their high performance.

Foster Middle was named a Star School while Hudson PEP was named a Scholar School.

The 2016 Texas Honor Roll, presented by ERP and the Institute for Productivity in Education, recognizes public K-8 and high schools for demonstrating consistently higher levels of student academic achievement, improvement over time, and reduction in achievement gaps among ethnic minority and socioeconomically disadvantaged students.

Hudson PEP Principal Sue Wilson credited her staff, students, and many parent volunteers for cultivating such a rich learning environment for the children to excel.

"This honor is a testament to the hard work of many people working together," she said. "It's a credit to what we try and do for our young people at Hudson PEP."

Foster Principal John York said he is pleased with the honor, but that he has no intention to allow his campus to rest on it laurels.

"Congratulations to the students and staff at Foster. We are very proud of the success our students are achieving," he said. "While this shows that we're going in the right direction, it also challenges us to push to excel even more." 

Longview ISD Superintendent Dr. James Wilcox said he is proud to have campuses recognized by education and business leaders across the state.

"Our teachers and administrators work tirelessly to keep the focus on high expectations and student academic achievement and to continuously improve our practices," he said. "This hard work and dedication is paying off for all of our students, no matter their background."
