Fourteen district schools receive high-performing designation


The Texas Education Agency (TEA) recently released a list of Title I schools designated as high-performing, which includes 14 in Dallas ISD.

A Title I school is one with a high percentage of children from low-income families. Such campuses receive federal funding to help ensure that all children, regardless of family income, meet state academic standards. The high-performance schools on the list have earned distinctions based on student reading and math performance. For high schools on the list, a high graduation rate is also considered. Data from 2014-2015 was used to determine the ratings.

The Dallas ISD schools designed as 2015-2016 high-performing schools are:

  • The School of Science and Engineering
  • Irma Rangel Young Women’s Leadership School (middle and high schools)
  • The School of Health Professions
  • Judge Barefoot Sanders Magnet Center for Public Service: Government, Law & Law Enforcement
  • Harry Stone Montessori Academy
  • Dallas Environmental Science Academy
  • Henry W. Longfellow Career Exploration Academy
  • George Bannerman Dealey Montessori Academy (elementary and middle schools)
  • Trinidad “Trini” Garza Early College High School
  • Dr. Wright L. Lassiter Jr. Early College High School
  • Sam Houston Elementary School
  • Barack Obama Male Leadership Academy

For 2015-2016, TEA identified 160 Texas campuses across the state as high-performing.
