TEA - B Rating for Bob Hope Middle & High School

My first year as Campus Director at BHS was during the 2018-2019 school year. The campus earned a B rating (87) from the Texas Education Agency. That rating was earned from a combined effort by the students, parents, teachers, teacher aides, clerical staff, custodial staff, special program directors, and administrative staff. Official reports and rating information can be found by clicking the link below.
