Palacios Independent School District (Isd)


The Palacios Independent School District (Isd) in Texas operates 4 schools, including 2 elementary schools, 1 middle school, and 1 high school. The district serves a diverse student population, with Hispanic students making up the majority across the schools. While the schools face socioeconomic challenges, with a high percentage of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, some standout performers emerge.

Palacios High School ranks in the top half of Texas high schools and maintains a 3-star rating, with a relatively high 4-year graduation rate and a low student-teacher ratio. East Side Intermediate also stands out, ranking in the top 37% of Texas elementary schools and outperforming the state average in STAAR Reading and Mathematics proficiency for grades 3-5.

However, the district faces some academic challenges, with Palacios J H performing below the state average in STAAR Mathematics proficiency for grades 6-8, and Central Elementary struggling with STAAR Science proficiency in grade 5. The variation in per-student spending across the schools also suggests potential differences in resource allocation within the district, which may impact student outcomes.
