On behalf of Educational Results Partnership (ERP), I am writing to congratulate your school community. After an extensive analysis of student data for every public school in California, Harmony Magnet Academy was a clear leader in getting students to grade-level and beyond and has been named to the 2019-20 Honor Roll. Congratulations!
Your school is being recognized as a leader in student achievement. We are featuring your school on ERP’s website where educators and policymakers can seek out high-performing schools so that they can replicate success. You can view our Honor Roll website here.
The 2019 - 2020 Honor Roll recognizes public elementary, middle and high schools that demonstrate high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement over time, and reduction in achievement gaps. For high schools, Honor Roll recognition includes measures of college readiness in students. This year, the California Honor Roll recognized 2,568 higher-performing schools in the state that are distinguished for their academic achievement and closing achievement gaps.
Through national research, we have identified a common set of success factors in higher-performing Honor Roll schools and districts. These include clear, specific learning objectives aligned to college and career readiness, along with:
A defined system-wide mission of college and career readiness for all students
An investment in human capital
Maintenance of data and assessment systems to monitor school and student performance
Resources and guidance to support schools' efforts in preparing all students for college and career
From all of us at ERP, we thank you for your hard work and commitment to improving student outcomes. We are proud to tell your story and promote your success!
