The Texas Education Agency released grades for school campuses Thursday, with more than half receiving A’s and B’s.

In Dallas ISD, 29 campuses earned an A, and 102 received a B. Eight were given an F, according to the 2019 accountability rating.

The ratings are based on three main indicators:

  • Student achievement, which takes several factors into account, including performance on the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness tests and graduation rates
  • School progress, which compares a school’s performance to its performance the previous year
  • Closing the gap, which is an effort to ensure that all students — including racial minorities, low-income students and English-language learners — are learning and improving

Here’s how our neighborhood schools were rated:
