Richardson Independent School District (Isd)


The Richardson Independent School District (ISD) in Texas operates 55 schools, including 41 elementary schools, 8 middle schools, 4 high schools, and 2 alternative schools, serving a diverse student population. The district is home to several standout schools, such as White Rock Elementary, which consistently ranks among the top in the state with exceptional academic performance, and Brentfield Elementary, which ranks 39th out of 4,647 elementary schools in Texas.

The district's schools exhibit a wide range of academic achievement, with the top-performing schools, including Math/Science/Technical Magnet, Arapaho Classical Magnet, and Prairie Creek Elementary, significantly outperforming the district and state averages in reading and math proficiency. However, some lower-performing schools, such as Risd Academy and Carolyn G Bukhair Elementary, struggle to meet state standards, highlighting the need for targeted interventions to address the unique challenges faced by these schools.

The data also reveals a correlation between the socioeconomic status of students, as measured by free/reduced lunch rates, and academic performance, with the highest-performing schools generally having lower percentages of economically disadvantaged students. This suggests that factors beyond just funding, such as school leadership, teacher quality, and student demographics, play a crucial role in student outcomes across the Richardson ISD.
