2018 Texas Education Agency (TEA) scaled STAAR score: 92
As described in the Texas Education Agency 2018 Accountability Manual, the STAAR scaled score is calculated by first adding equal weightings of the percentage of STAAR evaluations 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. The TEA refers to this as the STAAR raw component score. This raw score is then adjusted or “scaled” by using a conversion table to align letter grades and scores of Texas public school districts and campuses.
Nelson High School's 2018 academic accountability rating is Met Standard, the top campus rating awarded in 2018 by the TEA.
