Grimes Education Center

Summary:

Grimes Education Center is a small public high school in Carrollton, Texas, serving grades 9-12 and part of the Carrollton-Farmers Branch Independent School District (CFBISD). However, this school consistently ranks among the lowest-performing high schools in the state, with very poor academic performance and concerning metrics across the board.

Grimes Education Center has a student population of just 93 and struggles with low graduation rates, high dropout rates, and extremely low proficiency on state standardized tests. In 2022-2023, the school had 0% proficiency in Algebra I, Biology, and English I Reading, and only 13-21% proficiency in English II Reading and U.S. History. This is significantly worse than the other high schools in the CFBISD, such as Early College High School, Creekview High School, Smith High School, and Ranchview High School, which all significantly outperform Grimes Education Center. The school also trails nearby Harmony Science Academy - Carrollton and Uplift Education-North Hills Prep High School, two charter schools that excel in comparison.

Grimes Education Center's struggles are likely exacerbated by its high percentage of economically disadvantaged students, around 50-74% of the population. This socioeconomic factor is a strong predictor of educational outcomes, and the school's performance has remained consistently poor over the past 15 years with little to no improvement. Overall, Grimes Education Center appears to be a struggling school in need of significant interventions and support to improve outcomes for its students.

As you review the school rankings data, please be aware that some of the information from certain demographics is missing. The reason for this omission is that the data has been redacted from the source data itself due to low population samples in these specific demographic groups.

Redacting data from low population samples is a necessary step to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the results, as small sample sizes may not be representative of the broader population. Additionally, this measure helps protect the privacy of individuals belonging to these demographic groups.

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
