On October 25, C.T. Eddins Elementary School, McKinney Boyd High School and Roy Lee Walker Elementary School were named to the 2011 National Center for Educational Achievement (NCEA) Higher Performing Schools List for Texas. The list recognizes campuses that have demonstrated greater achievement when compared to other schools with similar student populations over the last three school years (2008-09, 2009-10, 2010-11).
NCEA considers two measures in identifying schools for the Higher Performing Schools list: 1) academic growth of students and/or 2) achievement of students on the TAKS Commended standard. To qualify, campuses must demonstrate outstanding performance in one or both areas. According to their website, NCEA’s identification of Higher Performing Schools comprises just over 10% of public schools in the state.
“The list of Higher Performing Schools is a valuable tool for any district that wants to evaluate areas of performance that might need strengthening. It’s also a great way to compare your school or district to other schools of similar demographics in the state of Texas,” says Angela Hall Watkins, Assistant Vice President and Managing Director of NCEA.
The McKinney Independent School District congratulates Eddins Elementary School, Boyd High School and Walker Elementary School on being named to this prestigious list.
