Highest Level of Quality

The Park Hill School District is a Quality Texas Foundation Regional Program (QTFRP) Highest Level of Quality Award winner. The award recognizes organizations based on best business practices following the National Malcolm Baldrige Criteria for Performance Excellence. 

The honor, which advances organizational excellence and competitiveness in the region, is the highest-level quality award in the district’s history. Park Hill is the first K-12 public school district to receive the regional distinction in 12 years. The district won the state-level Missouri Quality Award in 2009 and 2015, becoming the first public school district to win the award twice.
