An Award-Winning School District

College Station ISD has been recognized for its academic success on both the state and the national levels. Two of the district’s twelve schools received an “exemplary” rating on the Texas Education Agency’s Academic Excellence Indicator System. Five others were “recognized.” In 2008, 95% of students passed the reading, writing, and social studies sections of the state-mandated Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills. Around 89% passed the math section, and 84% passed science. Approximately 25% of students in College Station ISD are enrolled in advanced classes. Of the students who took Advanced Placement exams, an average 87.4% passed. Great staff members, including a regional Teacher of the Year, have led students to these successes.
Outside organizations have honored College Station ISD for its achievements. Two elementary schools were named as Honor Roll Campuses in 2006, and Texas Monthly has recognized three College Station ISD schools as high performing schools. Two national magazines, Newsweek and Expansion Management, have included A&M Consolidated High School on their lists of top high schools in the United States.

Individual students have also contributed to the district’s reputation for success. A&M Consolidated High School boasts seventeen National Merit Scholarship Semi-Finalists. The district has also received recognition for students’ success in national math, French, and science competitions. In addition to its academic achievements, College Station ISD has excellent fine arts programs, which in the last year have included three All-State Choir winners and two All-State Orchestra winners. College Station ISD’s recognized middle school students include thirty-six Duke Talent State winners and three Duke Talent National winners.
Although the district has achieved great academic successes, administrators in College Station ISD continue to look for ways to improve their students’ education. The District Improvement Plan outlines the long-term goals of providing students with greater opportunities for success through engaging both parents and the community in the educational process.
