Percent of Students - By Demographic Group - Who Have Been Assigned to "In-School Suspension"

This is the percentage of students who have been assigned to In-School Suspension during the 2009-2010 school year for one reason or another. The data is broken down by various demographic groups: (1) all students; (2) African-Americans; (3) Asians; (4) Hispanics; (5) Native Americans; (6) White; (7) Females; (8) Males; (9) Special Ed students; and (10) Economic Disadvantaged students, which I am just going to call Low Income. I have ranked them from high to low.

This is from the Texas Education Agency website - Disciplinary Data.

2010 Dallas area Exemplary Schools with and without the Texas Projection Measure

The Texas Projection Measure (TPM) is a way for schools to count students who failed the TAKS test as passing because they believe the students will pass future TAKS tests. Schools can use the TPM to improve their rating category or they can choose not to use it. The following is a list of schools who received the highest rating Exemplary and if they got that rating by using the TPM "boost" or if they got it on pure exemplary performance only.

2010 Newsweek's List of Top High Schools

Personally, I am not crazy about this list because all it measures is the number of advanced placement tests taken in relation to how many students are graduating. It does not matter how the students perform on these tests. Some of the schools, like the top 2 are selective schools - the cream of the crop kids.

So, for what it is worth, here's the list of just the Dallas area high schools:

Rank - School - (District)

1. Talented & Gifted magnet (Dallas ISD)
4. Science & Engineering magnet (Dallas ISD)
14. North Hills Prep (charter in Irving)
36. Highland Park (Highland Park ISD)
113. Booker T. Washington School for the Performing and Visual Arts (Dallas ISD)

153. Judge Sanders Public Service magnet (Dallas ISD)
170. Colleyville Heritage (Grapevine-Colleyville ISD)
217. Business & Management magnet (Dallas ISD)
243. McKinney (McKinney ISD)
255. J.J. Pearce (Richardson ISD)

288. Richardson (Richardson ISD)
298. W.T. White (Dallas ISD)
342. Grapevine (Grapevine-Colleyville ISD)
353. Plano West (Plano ISD)
422. Woodrow Wilson (Dallas ISD)

449. R.L. Turner (Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD)
456. Coppell (Coppell ISD)
518. Keller (Keller ISD)
531. Southlake Carroll (Carroll ISD)
542. Garland (Garland ISD)

582. Plano Sr. (Plano ISD)
583. Newman Smith (Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD)

788. Flower Mound (Lewisville ISD)
825. McKinney North (McKinney ISD)
858. Plano East (Plano ISD)
871. Hebron (Lewisville ISD)
911. Centennial (Frisco ISD)

938. L.D. Bell (HEB ISD)
1004. Creekview (Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD)
1057. Trinity (HEB ISD)
