Children at Risk ranks San Antonio's top schools for 2018

SAN ANTONIO – Children at Risk released data for the top performing schools in San Antonio for 2018 Monday morning.

Schools are assigned grades based on school performance, student growth, academic achievement and college readiness for high schools.

Academic and student achievement scores are based on standardized test grades from the STAAR tests and how those scores compare to other schools in similar levels of poverty.

Student growth is measured by how students improve on their STAAR tests in a single school year and not based on the number of new students entering the school.

College readiness is based on how many high school students are graduating on time and participating in other college readiness activities, according to Texas School Guide.
