Best Public Schools in Mount Pleasant, TX


Summary:

The city of Mount Pleasant, Texas is home to 14 schools across two school districts, serving students from elementary through high school. The schools in this area display a range of performance, with some standout institutions like Annie Sims Elementary and Chapel Hill J.H. consistently ranking among the top schools in the state, while others struggle with lower test scores and graduation rates.

The high schools in Mount Pleasant generally perform well, with Mount Pleasant High School and Chapel Hill High School boasting graduation rates over 97%. However, there are significant disparities in test scores between the top-performing and lower-performing schools, with 3rd-grade reading proficiency ranging from 82% at Annie Sims Elementary to just 46-49% at some other elementary schools. Interestingly, per-student spending does not appear to be a reliable indicator of school quality, as the high-spending Mount Pleasant DAEP alternative school has relatively low test scores compared to some of the lower-spending regular schools.

The schools in the Chapel Hill Independent School District (ISD) generally outperform those in the Mount Pleasant ISD, suggesting there may be systemic differences in the quality of education between the two districts. This is an important consideration for parents in the Mount Pleasant area when choosing the right school for their children.
