Making The Grade
"By comparing our current rating with our previous pre-COVID score, we can see that true growth has occurred in the district," said Superintendent Dr. Angélica Ramsey. "This rating should send a message to the community that we take education seriously, and we are excited about the continued growth throughout our district."
The TEA's report showed even more progress among MISD's campuses. The number of campuses earning an "A" or "B" rating more than tripled since the TEA's 2019 rating. This includes six "A" rated campuses, up from two in 2019, and seven "B" rated campuses, up from two in 2019.
The 2019 rating included 19 campuses that were given either a "D" or "F" rating. Fewer than half of those campuses (9), now have a comparable rating. (The TEA now grades "D" or "F" campuses as "not rated.") A closer look at the numbers reveals the number of failing campuses decreased from nine to two.
Notably, Young Women's Leadership Academy earned distinctions in all seven categories in its first year being rated. Other campuses earning distinctions include Early College High School, Carver Center, Bowie Fine Arts Academy, Emerson Elementary, Santa Rita Elementary, Sam Houston College Prep Elementary, Bush Elementary, Fannin Elementary, and Rusk Elementary.
Here is a look at how all the schools rate from 2019 vs 2022.
