Pasadena ISD earned a “Met Standard” designation from the Texas Education Agency (TEA), according to the organization’s annual accountability report.

Campuses that fall under a “Met Standard” school district are eligible to earn distinction designations, awarded for achievement and progress in the following areas:

  • Academic Achievement in English Language Arts/Reading;
  • Academic Achievement in Mathematics;
  • Academic Achievement in Science;
  • Academic Achievement in Social Studies;
  • Top 25 Percent: Student Progress;
  • Top 25 Percent: Closing Performance Gaps; and
  • Postsecondary Readiness.

A campus earns a distinction designation for being in the top quartile of its comparison group

for at least 33 percent (for high schools) or 50 percent (for all other campuses) of the indicators used to award the distinction.

Out of 62 rated campuses in PISD, 42 earned at least one distinction designation for a total of 124 distinctions.

  • Bailey, Golden Acres and Meador Elementary Schools have cause to celebrate for earning all possible distinction designations.
  • Miller and Southmore Intermediate both earned six out of seven distinction designations.
  • Bondy and Park View Intermediate both captured five out of seven distinction designations.
  • At the middle school level, Lomax and Melillo received five out of six possible distinctions.

Pasadena High School held a celebration recently for earning five out of seven possible distinctions, an increase of four distinctions since 2015. Out of the five rated high school campuses in the district, PHS earned the most distinction designations, earning them in reading, math, science, student progress and closing performance gaps.

"To say that I'm proud of our Eagle Nation would be an understatement. I am beyond proud of our students, faculty and staff. This recognition is a reflection of the hard work and dedication of our faculty, staff, the supportive PHS parents and community, and the amazing students we get to serve each and every day," PHS Principal Joe Saavedra said.

The following campuses earned one or more distinction designation.
