I love numbers and data! As a former math teacher, I have a love for random trivia with numbers. For example, we started the school year with 1 very tumultuous hurricane, but there are many more numbers that define Texas Online Preparatory School (TOPS)! In my position as the principal of the middle school and high school at TOPS, I have run across some fun number facts about the school:



My final number to share is 59. The last 59 school days have been amazing to witness the exciting times at Texas Online Preparatory School as students have worked hard to be successful through the first quarter of the school year and begin the second quarter. It’s been an exciting and number-filled school year so far, with many more numbers to come!
