Morrill Elementary designated a Gold Ribbon School by Children at Risk

Harlandale ISD’s Morrill Elementary was named a “Top 10 Gold Ribbon Elementary School” in San Antonio according to Children at Risk’s 2019 school rakings analysis.

The honor is granted to schools in Texas that receive an “A” or “B” school ranking and serve a student population that is more than 75 percent economically disadvantaged.  

Morrill Elementary serves a population of 445 Pre-K through fifth grade students. According to the report, the school’s reading and math scores have not only increased in recent years, but are also higher when compared to scores in the district and county.

The school was recognized for this distinction during the School Board meeting held at STEM Early College High School on June 17.

Principal Tina Mireles is proud of her faculty, staff and students on achieving this success at Morrill Elementary.

“We believe in motivating the whole child, which in turn allows Morrill students to rise above any road blocks that they may have in their lives,” Mireles said. “Morrill students are able to reach the high expectations we give them because our faculty and staff build relationships that foster student success.”

Children at Risk reviewed 574 public and public charter schools across the Greater San Antonio area and assigned an A-F grade in order to analyze the current quality of public education in the region, identify trends, and spotlight schools going beyond expectations. The nonprofit looked at several factors including student achievement, campus performance and growth.

Congratulations, Morrill Elementary!
