Carroll Campuses Named "Higher Performing Schools"

The National Center for Educational Achievement (NCEA), a department of ACT, Inc., recognized Carroll Independent School District for having eight schools in their district make the 2011 NCEA Higher Performing Schools List. The following schools received the honor:

  • Carroll Elementary School
  • Carroll High School
  • Don T. Durham Elementary School
  • Eubanks Intermediate School
  • George Dawson Middle School
  • Jack D. Johnson Elementary School
  • Old Union Elementary School
  • Robert H. Rockenbaugh Elementary School

The Higher Performing Schools (formerly known as Just for the Kids Schools) are identified by two measures: consistent improvement in student achievement from previous years (growth) and/or absolute student achievement using the school’s Commended Performance results on the spring 2009-2011 TAKS (Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills) test.

Visit the NCEA website to find out the higher performing recognition for each campus.

NCEA’s higher performing methodology controls for school and student demographics to allow for an apples-to-apples comparison of school achievement and to demonstrate that with the commitment of educators, all schools can have success no matter the zip code. NCEA provided award certificates to each Higher Performing School and the district.

The National Center for Educational Achievement (NCEA) is a non-profit, non-partisan ACT organization whose mission is to help K-12 students reach College and Career Readiness (CCR).
