Hacienda La Puente Unified Earns Spot on 2023 Honor Roll for Bolstering Student Achievement

Hacienda La Puente Unified is among 109 districts included in the Educational Results Partnership’s (ERP) 2023 Honor Roll, a prestigious recognition highlighting California’s top-performing school districts for their exemplary efforts in closing achievement gaps and preparing students for success in college and their future careers.

Glen A Wilson High School, Baldwin Academy, Bixby, Grazide, Los Molinos, Mesa Robles and Wedgeworth elementary schools and Newton Middle School were all recognized among the top-performing schools.

For its ninth year, the non-profit organization ERP and the Campaign for Business and Education Excellence (CBEE) have spotlighted the highest-performing public schools, Districts, and charter schools across California. Hacienda la Puente Unified is among the top 14% of all eligible districts in the state to receive the recognition.

"Our inclusion on the Honor Roll is a testament to the collective effort and unwavering dedication of our District's stakeholders to student achievement and equity," Board of Education President Christine H. Salazar proudly declared. "We are thrilled with the significant growth we have achieved and remain steadfast in our commitment to providing all our students with the necessary opportunities for success. This recognition serves as a powerful motivator, inspiring us to continue our pursuit of excellence in all facets of education."

Hacienda La Puente Unified cultivates supportive and engaging environments across all campuses. This school year, the District has been recognized with a Model School Attendance Review Board award, four National Blue Ribbon School awards, and four Civic Learning awards. These accolades highlight the District’s efforts to nurture each student's potential through positive intervention strategies, robust programs, college and career resources, and a rigorous curriculum.

The Honor Roll recognitions, determined through comprehensive data analysis from the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress, are part of ERP's national efforts to raise awareness of the importance of high-quality educational systems that yield life-long, career-ready skills among learners, particularly in economically challenged communities.

"At HLPUSD, we are dedicated to fostering a learning environment that equips our students with the essential skills they need to excel in their academic and professional lives," Superintendent Dr. Alfonso Jiménez expressed. "We are honored to earn a spot on the ERP Honor Roll this year. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to our educators, staff, students, and community for their unwavering dedication and invaluable contributions to our students' well-being. Your support is truly appreciated and valued."
