This spring, high school students in Leander and Liberty Hill ISDs outperformed state averages on the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness End-of-Course assessment.

LISD students also surpassed LHISD students in all five subject areas, including algebra I, biology, English I and II, and U.S. history.

In 2024, LHISD students performed below or at their scores from 2023 while LISD students maintained last year's scores in all subjects, except for English I.

The breakdown

STAAR results released by the Texas Education Agency on June 7 show high school students in LISD and LHISD approaching grade level at a higher rate than the state averages across the board. Approaching grade level is equivalent to passing and indicates a student is likely to do well in the next grade level.

The most notable disparity occurred in English I, in which 85% of LISD students and 82% of LHISD students passed compared to the state average of 67%.

LISD outperformed LHISD the most in English II with 89% of LISD students passing compared to 82% of students in LHISD.

What else?

In LISD, students maintained the same scores from spring 2023 in every subject, except English I as the number of students passing decreased by 3% in 2024.

LHISD students performed below their spring 2023 scores in algebra I, and English I and II while maintaining their scores in biology and U.S. history. The district saw an 8% decrease in English II scores.
