Georgetown Independent School District (Isd)


The Georgetown Independent School District (ISD) in Texas operates a diverse set of 19 schools, including 10 elementary schools, 4 middle schools, and 5 high schools, serving students from a wide range of socioeconomic and racial backgrounds. The district's schools exhibit a mix of academic performance, with standout institutions like Jo Ann Ford Elementary and Douglas Benold Middle ranking among the top in the state, while others struggle with lower proficiency rates and higher rates of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch.

Across the district, there is significant variation in key metrics such as academic performance, student-teacher ratios, and per-student spending. For instance, Jo Ann Ford Elementary boasts strong STAAR test results, with 64-70% of students proficient or better in reading and 55-67% in math, while Annie Purl Elementary has a much higher free/reduced lunch rate of 75.22% and lower academic performance. Similarly, Douglas Benold Middle and Georgetown High School stand out for their impressive academic results and high graduation rates.

The data suggests that socioeconomic status may be a significant factor influencing student outcomes in the district, and the district could benefit from further analysis to understand the drivers of these disparities and develop targeted strategies to support lower-performing schools. The strong performance of schools like Jo Ann Ford Elementary and Douglas Benold Middle could also provide valuable insights and best practices that could be applied across the district to raise overall academic achievement.
