Dripping Springs ISD high school students performed above state averages in all five subjects on the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness End-of-Course assessment, according to results released by the Texas Education Agency on June 7.

The breakdown

DSISD students whose scores indicated "meets grade level" slightly decreased from 2023 in English II and U.S. history. Scores grew slightly in all other subjects from 2023.

Meets grade level means students are likely to succeed in the next grade, according to the TEA.

DSISD students performed significantly above state average. Scores were up by 32 percentage points higher than Texas' as a whole.

Statewide, student scores remained consistent in algebra I, biology and English I from the year prior. There was an increase in the percentage of students meeting grade level in English II and a decrease for U.S. History.

Quote of note

“The [EOC] results highlight both the progress Texas students and educators have made, and the challenges that remain to help students improve outcomes, which can only come from a robust assessment and accountability system,” TEA Commissioner Mike Morath said in a news release. “While we celebrate the gains in English II, we must also acknowledge the areas where student performance has not recovered to prepandemic levels.”

Next steps

Parents can view their children's individual scores online, including their student's answers for each question.

Results for grades 3-8 will be made publicly available June 14.
