For the fifth year in a row, Carroll ISD has been ranked #1 School District in the state of Texas. With 12 schools and 8,208 students under its umbrella, Carroll ISD earned a ranking score of .997 to beat out 979 other districts, including top performers Highland Park ISD, Basis Texas, and Lovejoy ISD in a recent report by SchoolDigger.com.
SchoolDigger’s 2018-19 Texas School District Rankings list is calculated using test scores released by the Texas Education Agency, with the most recent available data compiled on July 16. The aggregator has collected data from over 136,000 schools in every state to compile yearly rankings for cities, schools, and districts across the nation.
In addition to its district rankings, Southlake was also rated the top Texas city for education overall. George Dawson Middle School placed sixth on the website’s middle school rankings, and Old Union and Carroll Elementary placed first and second respectively on its rankings for elementary schools.
Carroll ISD Board of Trustees President Sheri Mills spoke about this achievement in a recent article by Southlake Style:
“I’m so proud for our students, teachers and Dragon families to once again be ranked at the number one district in the State of Texas. Achievements like this cannot be made by individuals. It takes effort from everyone, and in our case, we have teachers going the extra mile, parents who are engaged and cooperative in their child’s education, and ultimately we have students who genuinely care about learning. To achieve this ranking in the same year as winning the UIL Lone Star Cup really speaks to the effort that our students are giving into schools each day. It’s the ‘extra’ that goes along with the curriculum that helps students succeed at the next steps in their lives: and that goes way beyond the test.”
