Amarillo Independent School District (Isd)


The Amarillo Independent School District (Isd) in Texas operates 54 schools, including 37 elementary schools, 12 middle schools, and 5 high schools, serving a diverse student population. The district has a mix of high-performing and lower-performing schools, with significant disparities in academic outcomes that appear linked to socioeconomic factors.

Some of the standout schools in the district include Sleepy Hollow Elementary and Woodlands Elementary, which rank in the top 5% of Texas elementary schools, and Lorenzo De Zavala Middle, the top-performing middle school in the district. At the high school level, Amarillo High School is the top performer, ranking in the top 15% of Texas high schools.

However, the district also faces challenges, with several schools, including the alternative high school North Heights Alter, struggling with low performance, high dropout rates, and other issues. The data suggests a strong correlation between socioeconomic status and academic achievement, with schools serving higher percentages of students from low-income families tending to have lower test scores and poorer outcomes. Addressing these disparities and providing targeted support to the district's lower-performing schools will be crucial for ensuring all students in the Amarillo Isd have access to a high-quality education.
