TEA district, school ratings now available

The Texas Education Agency released district and campus ratings today, with Northwest ISD earning an overall score of 89, or a high “B” rating. Our campuses earned a combined total of 18 academic distinction designations.

In 2017, the 85th Texas Legislature enacted an A-F grading system as a tool to communicate the performance of schools. The ratings are based predominantly on annual standardized test scores from the STAAR at elementary and middle school and End-of-Course exams at high school.

A-F ratings are based on three domains:

  • Student Achievement: Includes STAAR test performance on all STAAR tests, college, career, and military readiness, and graduation rates.
  • School Progress: Year-over-year performance on STAAR performance, as well as performance relative to similar districts/campuses.
  • Closing the Gaps: Student performance disaggregated by student group in four components: Academic Achievement, Federal Graduation Rate, English Language Proficiency, and Student Success.

Campus ratings and distinctions are earned based on 2021-22 school year data.
