The 77465 zip code area is home to 5 schools, including 3 elementary schools, 1 middle school, and 1 high school, which are part of the Palacios Independent School District (ISD) and the Tidehaven ISD. The standout school in this set is Markham Elementary, which has consistently ranked among the top 5% of elementary schools in Texas and earned a 5-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Markham Elementary stands out with exceptional student performance, with 82-96% of students proficient or better in reading and math on the STAAR assessments, significantly outperforming the state and district averages. In contrast, the Palacios High School and Palacios J.H. (middle school) have more mixed performance, with the middle school struggling to meet state averages on STAAR tests. The high rates of students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch across all the schools suggest these communities face socioeconomic challenges that may impact student learning and achievement.

The data highlights the importance of considering both school-level and district-level performance when evaluating the quality of education in an area. The stark contrast between Markham Elementary and the Palacios ISD schools underscores the need to look beyond district-level metrics to identify standout schools and areas for improvement. The relatively low student-teacher ratios across the schools indicate they are able to provide more individualized attention to students, which could be a contributing factor to the strong performance at Markham Elementary.
