Tyler ISD is proud to announce that Griffin Elementary School and Moore MST Magnet School have been recognized by the National Center for Educational Achievement (NCEA) as 2010 Higher Performing Schools for Texas.
NCEA, at the end of January, released its 2010 NCEA Higher Performing Schools List for Texas. The list identifies elementary, middle and high schools as NCEA Higher Performing Schools that have consistently outperformed their peers that serve similar student populations and recognizes their achievement in bringing more students to college and career readiness than expected.
Griffin Elementary School received the recognition for its student achievement in reading and writing.  Moore MST Magnet School received the recognition for its canada neric-ed-.com/”> online student achievement in math.
“Making the list, and especially in all subjects, is a great achievement for these schools,” said Efrain Mercado, Director of Outreach at NCEA. “With education reforms focused on higher standards and higher accountability measures such as the coming of the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR), these higher performing schools show us that all students can, and will, get there. Our Texas educators are doing great work, but if we want every student to graduate with the skills to be successful beyond high school, there’s still more work to do. The schools on this list show us that Texas is making college and career readiness a priority,” said Mercado.
