For 11 years, our School Rankings strive to serve as an accessible guide for parents, educators, and community members on the performance of local schools and to spark important community dialogue on the quality of public education in Texas. Click here to view the methodology for the 2016 CHILDREN AT RISK Annual School Rankings, including the following measures by which schools are measured:

  • Student Achievement Index – Performance on STAAR Reading and Math tests
  • Campus Performance Index – An adjustment of achievement indicators to eliminate bias toward campuses with low percentages of economically disadvantaged students
  • Growth Index – The improvement over time on standardized test scores in Reading, English, and Math
  • College Readiness Index - graduation rates, SAT/ACT participation rate and scores, and AP/IB participation rate and scores

The Gold Ribbon Schools lists represent the top schools with a high concentration of economically disadvantaged students in Texas’ major metro areas. The Houston, San Antonio, Austin, North Texas and Fort Worth lists of Gold Ribbon Schools and Top Elementary, Middle and High Schools are provided below. Data sheets are also available below, and check out www.texasschoolguide.org for statewide report cards.
