Friendswood ISD's 2018 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 indicated in the 2018 TEA STAARS scores graph (right) and shown in the Friendswood ISD schools table (below), three Friendswood ISD campuses attained TEA STAAR scaled scores between 90 and 100 and two Friendswood ISD campuses had STAAR scaled scores between 80 and 89. The 2018 accountability rating for all Friendswood ISD schools is Met Standard, the TEA's highest campus rating.
