• Six Schools Make High Performing List

    The National Center for Educational Achievement (NCEA) recently released its 2010 NCEA Higher Performing Schools List for Texas. Six CISD schools made the list:

    • Coppell High School in Math and Reading
    • CMS East in Math and Reading
    • CMS North in Math and Reading
    • CMS West in Math, Reading, and Writing
    • Denton Creek Elementary in Writing
    • Valley Ranch Elementary in Writing

    According to NCEA, Higher Performing Schools are determined based on two measures: growth of students at the school and absolute achievement of students, which is based on the Commended TAKS criteria. Higher Performing Schools outperform their peers that serve similar student populations, and have more than expected academic growth for three consecutive years.
