Area schools get high marks from state

In a Texas Education Agency report issued Friday, campuses with students from Argyle, Bartonville, Copper Canyon, Double Oak, Flower Mound, Highland Village and Lantana ranked among the top in the state.

Ratings were issued for an estimated 1,227 school districts and charters with more than 8,500 campuses across Texas, according to a news release.

The ratings were based on several measurements including student achievement, student progress, closing performance gaps and postsecondary readiness.

Campuses achieving met standards were also eligible for distinction designations.  For example, campuses could earn such distinctions as academic achievement in reading/English language arts, mathematics, science and social studies. They also could earn the titles of top 25 percent in student progress, closing performance gaps and postsecondary readiness.

Argyle, Denton and Lewisville school districts met all four measurements to achieve the “met standards” rank. Search the ratings here.

Flower Mound High School earned additional recognition with distinctions in six areas including reading and language arts, math, science, social studies, closing the cap and post secondary — one of 400 campuses earning distinctions in 26 school districts.

The ratings included 87.4 percent in the state which met the standard, 2.7 percent that met an alternative standard, 9 percent requiring improvement and .8 percent not rated.
