Clear Creek ISD schools shined in a recent study done by the
local nonprofit advocacy group Children at Risk. The study ranked and issued
letter grades for 1,331 public schools in the greater Houston area based on
academic outcomes over the past year.
Elementary, intermediate and high schools were evaluated
separately on how high students scored on standardized tests and the level of
improvement from the year prior. Clear Creek ISD lead the pack with 70 percent
of schools receiving an “A” letter grade and no schools receiving “D” or “F”
Clear Horizons Early College High School and Clear Lake High
School both ranked in the top ten high schools out of the 171 schools
evaluated. Clear Horizons was also honored by Children at Risk for having the
most impressive student improvements on state exams in reading and math from
2014 to 2015.
The School Rankings strive to serve as an accessible guide
for parents, educators, and community members on the performance of local
schools and to spark important community dialogue on the quality of public
education in Texas.
