We have some amazing students in Pasadena ISD! Last year our students at every level achieved success in academics, art, athletics and music. A growing number of our high school students took dual credit and advanced placement courses, earning college credit along the way. More than 83 percent of our seniors graduated in four years, a significantly higher percentage than the state standard. It was a good year.
Our students’ success depends largely on our people. We encouraged our principals and teachers this year to make an unmistakable impact on every student in every classroom every day. It is a challenge we embrace with joy. When I hear the passion in the voices of our principals and see the concern in the eyes of our teachers, I know our students are in good hands. I’m convinced. We have some amazing students in Pasadena ISD. It’s going to be great year!
