Jr/Sr High Receives Award for Being a Top Ten High School in Greater San Antonio.
On September 28th, Stacey Jr/Sr High School received a plaque for being one of the top 10 public high schools in Greater San Antonio. This highly sought after honor came from the Children at Risk organization. They researched and ranked high schools in the greater San Antonio area. The organization's High School rankings report was based on the evaluation of 57 public high schools in the six counties of greater San Antonio. Researchers used 14 measures of performance to evaluate how schools are preparing students for post-secondary success. Included indicators were: the percentage of students achieving TAKS Texas Success Initiative standards in Math, English Language Arts, Social Studies, and Science; the percentage of ACT/SAT test takers; mean SAT and ACT test scores; enrollment in advanced courses; completion of the recommended high school program; participation in AP exams; performance on AP exams' four year graduation rates; and English/Language Arts average class size. We are excited and honored to have received this award on behalf of our students, staff, parents, and community.
