GreatSchools.org announced the recipients of its 2021 College Success Award, an annual recognition that honors high schools excelling at preparing students to enroll and succeed in college, as determined by available data in each state.
This unique award, based on high school and postsecondary data provided by state education agencies, offers a snapshot of whether a high school prepares students to enroll in college, succeed with college-level coursework, and persist into their second year. School, district, and state education leaders in these 25 states were undeterred by the pandemic’s challenges and provided the critical data transparency needed to help communities understand paths to success from high school to college.
In addition to winning this year’s annual Award, I’m pleased to share that HARMONY SCIENCE ACAD (EL PASO) has also been selected as one of only 1,770 schools across the nation to win the inaugural College Success Award – Gold — an additional, elevated level of distinction to recognize schools that have a multiyear track record of college success. Awardees are selected based on available college preparation and postsecondary data provided by your state.
