A new report from the Texas Education Agency ranks Argyle High School as one of the top in state accountability ratings.

There are seven distinctions that are used to determine which campuses qualify for the honor. These are based on achievement in performance indicators in relation to a group of 40 campuses similar in type, size and student demographics.

Those are:
Academic achievement in reading/English and language arts;
Academic achievement in mathematics;
Academic achievement in science;
Academic achievement in social studies;
Top 25 percent: Student progress;
Top 25 percent: Closing performance gaps; and
Postsecondary readiness.

In 2015, 4,388 campuses rated at the “met standard” rank, and earned some type of distinction. Only 153 high, middle and junior high schools earmed all seven designations.

Argyle High is one of them.
