Recently, Children at Risk researched and ranked 60 public high schools, 99 middle schools and 265 elementary schools from seven area counties. At the top of the list for their respective categories were LASA High School in Austin ISD and Canyon Creek Elementary School and Canyon Vista Middle School in Round Rock ISD.
“Congratulations to the faculty and student body at all the campuses,” says Dr. Bob Sanborn, president and CEO of Children at Risk. “Sure, there are schools that excel academically every year, but it’s an honor to report the progress and strides many other schools have achieved.”
High schools were measured for achievement, performance, growth and college readiness. Middle and elementary schools were analyzed for STAAR performance and average reading and math gains and losses, and adjusted for the percentage of economically disadvantaged students at each campus.
Children at Risk is a non-profit organization that seeks to educate the community and public officials based on its research tracking children’s health, safety, education and economic conditions.
