Outstanding Score from Texas Education Agency – Distinctions & Ratings
HSA-Sugar Land earns all possible distinctions for an Elementary School: six out of six! In addition, gets an A rating; congrats to all the students, staff and families!
“Earning one or several campus-level distinctions is notable and should be applauded by a community as an outstanding achievement,” said Texas Commissioner of Education, Mike Morath. “For a school to earn every potential distinction applicable to their campus is difficult, but a reflection of some truly amazing work by our educators.”

Dear HSA Sugar Land Parents and Guardians,
Questions have been raised in regards to our backpack policy and ID badges.
Our backpack policy remains unchanged. Students will be allowed to bring a backpack to school unless otherwise noted, however rolling backpacks are NOT permitted on campus. K- 4th will have cubbies in the classrooms where students will be required to place their backpacks while 5th grade students will be provided lockers outside the classroom where they will be required to place their backpacks.
ID Badge: Every student is required to purchase and must wear and ID badge at all times. No exceptions!

I have been the Principal at HSA SL for the past four years and I cannot thank you enough for your unwavering trust and tremendous support. I look forward to partnering with you in an effort to provide the best education possible to your child (ren).
My goal for this year as it has been in the past years is to ensure that each child grows academically but more importantly to have them grow to be healthy, happy and well-rounded citizens. At HSA SL we have certified teachers that utilize research based best practices to analyze academic data to help determine each student’s current skills in order to set goals for student improvement, growth and achievement. We strive to equip every student with the best skillset to help them achieve their highest potential. Thank you for entrusting us with your most prized possession – Your children!
As excited as I am to welcome you through this letter, it is the face-to-face interactions that I value most. Here at HSA SL we have an open door policy, and I welcome the opportunity to meet with you. We look forward to collaborating with all our families in providing our children the best education as we ensure they grow to be productive citizens in society.
It is truly a privilege to be a part of a community where parents, teachers, students and staff care and support each other as we grow our learning community. Once again, welcome back and let’s make it another Fabulous Year!
