The National Center for Education Achievement recently released the list of 2011 Higher Performing Schools for Texas that includes 13 Katy ISD campuses. Higher Performing Schools are those elementary, middle, and high schools in Texas that have consistently outperformed their peers with similar student populations over a three-year period. NCEA identified the Higher Performing Schools based on one or both of two measures: 1) academic growth of students and/or 2) achievement of students on the TAKS Commended standard.
The following Katy ISD campuses have been named 2011 Higher Performing Schools: Alexander, Griffin, Kilpatrick and Rylander Elementary Schools; Beck, Beckendorff, Cinco Ranch, McMeans and Memorial Parkway Jr. High Schools; and Cinco Ranch, Katy, Seven Lakes and Taylor High Schools.
These campuses will be recognized during the Katy ISD Board of Trustees Meeting on December 12.
NCEA (formerly known as Just for the Kids) began identifying Higher Performing Schools in 1998 and continues to annually release these lists as well as College and Career Readiness Charts for every public school in Texas. To view complete charts, visit nc4ea.org.
