Test Scores for High Schools

Here is a handy dandy map of the high schools in the Austin area, including the suburbs like Cedar Park, Round Rock, Pflugerville, Lakeway, Westlake Hills, Dripping Springs and Buda.

But how do I use this map?

I’m glad you asked.

  1. See the colors?  Red means they scored the best on state tests in 2013, followed by green, then blue with yellow as the lowest.
  2. Zoom in and click on a pin.  It should tell you the school name and the score that it averaged on state tests.
  3. Look for a neighborhood name near schools that you like.  They are currently written in ALL CAPS ITALICS on the Google map.
  4. When you are house-hunting, the area schools are usually listed in the MLS for that property.  To look up that specific high school’s performance on the map, click on the list button on the upper left hand corner of the map. Find the school name alphabetically.

Here are the other schools too:

Wondering what their current score is for the latest school year?  Me too.  The state changed how they are doing things and I can’t make heads or tails of the information, so I am leaving the 2012-13 scores up for now.

Check out the state’s website for accountability to get more up-to-date information.
