Houston ISD academic profile

Houston school districts rank: 28

Academic performance score: 7

Texas Education Agency accountability rating: Not Rated: Harvey Provision

Complete Texas school district rankings are presented on this Texas school districts page.

The academic performance score provides a quick way to determine approximately where a school district's or school's student academic performance ranks among the performance of students in other Texas districts and schools. School districts and campuses with combined State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) and college readiness indexes ranked in the top ten percent of Texas school districts and schools are awarded an academic performance score of 10, districts and schools with combined academic performance indexes in the ninth decile receive a score of 9, and so on.

Houston ISD profileHouston Independent School District operates 170 elementary schools, 38 middle schools and 46 high schools that received 2018 Texas Education Agency (TEA) accountability ratings and are traditional open enrollment schools and magnet schools. These 254 schools are attended by approximately 213,500 students who live in Houston and Bellaire.

Houston ISD's 2018 TEA STAAR component scaled score is 75. 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 Houston ISD schools table (below), thirty-three Houston ISD campuses attained TEA STAAR scaled scores between 90 and 100, thirty-five campuses STAAR scores were between 80 and 89, sixty-three had scores between 70 and 79, forty-five scored between 60 and 69, sixty-five scored between 50 and 59 and three Houston ISD campuses had STAAR scaled scores between 40 and 49. The 2018 accountability rating for 243 of Houston ISD's 254 rated schools is Met Standard, the TEA's highest campus rating. The TEA considered the operations of fourteen schools to have been directly and significantly affected by Hurricane Harvey and granted these schools an accountability rating waiver. The TEA rating of seven Houston ISD schools is Improvement Required. Additional academic performance, student enrollment, teacher staffing and other information about selected schools is available by clicking on the campus names.
