Three of the schools within the Yvonne A. Ewell Townview Center magnet made the 2011 Texas Business and Education Honor Roll, including the School of Health Professions, School of Science and Engineering, and the School for the Talented and Gifted. The award represents less than 4 percent of Texas public schools. The schools are recognized based on commended TAKS performance sustained over the past three years. Sixteen other Dallas ISD schools received the honor and will be recognized at a ceremony Dec. 2 at the Fairmont Hotel.
