Posted In: CCISD News | DISD News | FISD News | PISD News | TCISD News Posted by Pam Moore on 04/15/2016


The 2016 Best School Districts in Houston Metro report was released on April 13, 2016. The following factors were considered when calculating this information: Academic grade; Health & Safety Grade; Parent/Student Surveys on Overall Experience; Student Culture & Diversity Grade; Teachers Grade; Resources & Facilities Grade. Statistics obtained from the U.S. Department of Education represent the most recent data available, usually from 2013-2014, as self-reported by the school district.

Niche.com reviewed their database which contained records for 12,153 school districts. School districts were not included in the ranking process if they did not have sufficient data. The final ranking results in 10,563 school districts receiving a grade, with 10,488 of those also receiving a numerical ranking. An inspection of this list on the Niche.com website showed rankings from #1 to #82. The school districts named and their rankings are: About Niche.com - “Niche is transforming the way people make big life decisions.

  • Always stop for a school bus that has stopped to load or unload; remember, when you are on a two-lane road/street, you must stop.
  • Do Not Use your cell phone when driving in school zones; it is against the law!
  • Be alert and ready to stop.
  • Watch for children walking in the street, especially where there are no sidewalks.
  • When driving in neighborhoods or school zones, watch for young people who may be in a hurry to get to school (or back home) and may not be thinking about getting there safely.
