A Closer Look at Schools in Alvin ISD Zoning

Alvin Independent School District operates 16 elementary schools, six middle schools, and four high schools. These 26 schools are attended by approximately 24,800 students who live in Alvin, Iowa Colony, Liverpool, Manvel, Pearland, Rosharon and Santa Fe.

Alvin ISD's 2018 TEA STAAR component scaled score is 80. The STAAR scaled score is calculated by first adding equal weightings of the percentage of assessments on which students’ performance mastered grade level, met grade level, and approached grade level, dividing the sum by 3 and rounding it to the nearest whole percentage. This raw STAAR raw component score is then adjusted or “scaled” by using a conversion table to align accountability letter grades and scores of Texas public school districts and campuses.

The 2018 accountability rating for all Alvin ISD schools is Met Standard, the TEA's highest campus rating. Five Alvin ISD campuses attained TEA STAAR scaled scores between 90 and 100, five campuses' STAAR scores were between 80 and 89, fourteen had scores between 70 and 79 and one Alvin ISD campus had a STAAR scaled score between 60 and 69.
