Varnett already has received letters of congratulations from U.S. Sen. John Cornyn of Texas and and State Sen. Florence Shaprio, chairwoman of the Committee on Education.

Texas School Business, a magazine that covers education in the state, also acknowledged Varnett for its achievement.

The East Campus, under the leadership of 2009-2010 campus director Twilet Alexander, earned the prestigious award for its high performing students and for being ranked among the top 10 percent of schools in Texas as measured by its performance on state assessments. The award was issued by the U.S. Department of Education.
