Newman Elementary School makes Texas Honor Roll
Serving Hollyhock’s youngest residents, Frisco ISD’s Newman Elementary School has earned many distinctions, including a spot on the 2017-18 Texas Honor Roll.
The Honor Roll is developed by Educational Results Partnership (ERP), a nonprofit organization that applies data science to help improve student outcomes and career readiness. Schools that receive the Honor Roll distinction have demonstrated consistently high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement levels over time, and a reduction in achievement gaps among student populations.
Principal Rachael Gilbert says the Honor Roll distinction reflects the steady academic gains that students at Newman Elementary have made since the school opened in 2014.
“We are very excited about our 2018 scores on the STAAR test, the annual assessment program in Texas,” she said. “I recently spoke to a new Hollyhock resident who had planned to send his son to private school. After reviewing our latest test scores online, he decided to enroll his child at Newman instead.”
Newman had earned an overall A+ grade from Niche, along with A+ grades for Academics and Teachers. Niche also ranks Newman as the No. 3 Best Public Elementary School in Denton County.
Hollyhock is proud of its active partnership with Newman, which includes sponsoring its Thursday Folders for the 2018-19 school year. Sent home with students each Thursday, these folders include graded work from the previous week, so parents can review their children’s progress.
