Allen Independent School District profileAllen Independent School District operates eighteen elementary schools, three middle schools, one ninth grade center and one high school. These twenty-three schools are attended by approximately 21,100 students who live in Allen, McKinney, Lucas and Parker.

Allen ISD's 2018 Texas Education Agency (TEA) STAAR component scaled score is 93. As is further explained in the Texas Education Agency 2018 Accountability Manual, the STAAR scaled score is calculated by first adding equal weightings of the percentage of assessments on which students’ performance mastered grade level, met grade level and approached grade level, dividing the sum by 3 and rounding it to the nearest whole percentage. This raw STAAR raw component score is then adjusted or “scaled” by using a conversion table to align accountability letter grades and scores of Texas public school districts and campuses.

As depicted in the 2018 TEA STAARS scores graph (right) and shown in the Allen ISD schools table (below), nineteen Allen ISD campuses attained TEA STAAR scaled scores between 90 and 100, two campuses' STAAR scores were between 80 and 89, and one Allen ISD campus had a STAAR scaled score between 70 and 79.

Sixteen Allen ISD schools are attended by students living in north Dallas suburban neighborhoods profiled on this website. The TEA STAAR scaled scores for fifteen of these campuses is between 90 and 100 and the score for one campus is between 80 and 89.
