When the Texas Education Agency released the 2018 Accountability Reports Community High School, along with all other Community ISD campuses, received the state’s highest rating of Met Standard in all three domains: student achievement, school progress and closing the gaps. Additionally, under the preview of next year’s TEA accountability system which will assign a letter grade to each public school campus, Community High School would have received a B for 2017-18.
Schools that earned a Met Standard rating are eligible for distinction designations, which compare the performance of a single school to the performance of 40 similar schools across seven categories. Community High School achieved the top quartile (top 25%) of performance for Academic Achievement in Social Studies and Academic Growth. This performance earned Community High School TWO distinctions!
Community HS Principal Mike Westfall says he is excited to build on the accomplishments and growth recognized by the distinctions. “This campus has worked extremely hard to create classrooms where learning is fun and engaging, and that will continue to be a point of emphasis” says Westfall. “The next step for us is to continue to raise the expectations for each and every student to reach their highest and best potential,” added Westfall. “We believe that we have just scratched the surface of our academic potential and we are looking forward to proving that excellence is a habit!”
