Bay City Independent School District (Isd)


The Bay City Independent School District (Isd) in Texas operates 5 schools, including 3 elementary schools, 1 middle school, and 1 high school, serving a diverse student population with a significant economically disadvantaged population.

Among the standout schools, Bay City High School has the highest graduation rate at 96.3% and the lowest student-teacher ratio of 12.5, while also spending the most per student at $14,549. The lone middle school, Bay City J H, outperforms the district and state averages in several STAAR test subjects and has the highest SchoolDigger rating in the district at 3 stars. In contrast, the elementary schools, particularly Tenie Holmes Elementary and Roberts Elementary, struggle to meet state performance standards and rank in the bottom quartile of Texas elementary schools.

The data suggests potential funding disparities within the district, as evidenced by the significant differences in spending per student across the schools. Additionally, the high rates of economic disadvantage, with all schools having between 77% and 86% of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, may contribute to the academic challenges faced by the district's schools.
