From the principal's desk

Routh Roach Elementary received the rating of Exemplary for fifteen years by the Texas Education Agency. We have also received the rating of Recognized for three years. The scores on the Texas State Assessment of Knowledge and Skills were used each year to determine the school's rating. We are very pleased with the rating of Exemplary for the years received. A team effort with both the parents and staff members help provide the students with the best possible education.

Only 250 schools in the United States Received this honor. See the Dept. of Education report to read what the U.S. Department of Education had to say about Routh Roach.
