Update (Sept. 2, 2022): Bayles Elementary has been added to the list.

Our neighborhood schools recently received grades from the Texas Education Agency.

The scores were rated using the academic accountability system, which takes into consideration student achievement, school progress and closing the gaps.

Student achievement includes performance on STAAR tests, graduation rates, and college, career and military readiness (CCMR) indicators. School progress “measures district and campus outcomes in two areas: the number of students that grew at least one year academically (or are on track) as measured by STAAR results and the achievement of students relative to districts or campuses with similar economically disadvantaged percentages.” Closing the gaps “uses disaggregated data to demonstrate differentials among racial/ethnic groups, socioeconomic backgrounds and other factors.”

Overall, Dallas ISD earned a B, with 86 out of 100 points.

Most of the East Dallas campuses earned Bs, with Lakewood Elementary and Dan D. Rogers Elementary earning an A and a handful of schools earning Cs. One school, S.S. Conner Elementary, was given a “not rated” label because its score (67) was less than 70; schools that earned these lower scores were given the label, rather than D or F, because the TEA continues to recognize the lingering effects of COVID-19 on education.

Here’s how our neighborhood schools, which are all in session now, scored:

  • Alex Sanger Preparatory School: B (83)
