Principal Bertie Simmons with Furr High School graduates

I hope you will take a moment to read this column that Gaston Caperton, the President of the College Board wrote in the Huffington Post about HISD’s Furr High School and the phenomenal work that Principal Bertie Simmons is doing there. Last month, Furr was one of three schools in the country to receive the College Board’s Inspiration Award for providing a higher level of academic rigor and preparing students for college. This year, 78 percent of the students at Furr took AP or Pre-AP courses, that’s up from 8 percent just five years ago. Congratulations to Dr. Simmons and everyone at Furr High School!
