Riverstone Schools Among Texas’ Best

Riverstone Schools Among Texas’ Best

December 05, 2019

Three Riverstone schools are among the state’s top schools, according to a report recently released by Children at Risk. 

Anne Sullivan Elementary, Commonwealth Elementary and Fort Settlement Middle School all received an A+ rating on the non-profit organization’s fall rankings.

Traditionally, Children at Risk releases one annual school rankings report in the spring. However, the organization is releasing a second batch of 2019 scores as it switches to a fall publication timeline. The nonprofit’s leaders said they now receive student performance data earlier in the year from the Texas Education Agency, allowing for quicker calculation of rankings.

Commonwealth Elementary placed at No. 33 out of 4,582 elementary schools in the state and No. 1 in Fort Bend County. Sullivan ranked No. 77 in the state and No. 4 in the county. Sullivan Elementary is located on-site in our community.

Among middle schools, Fort Settlement was ranked No. 37 out of 2,013 schools and No. 2 out of 23 in Fort Bend County.

The schools were measured by STAAR test achievements in reading and math, growth over time in those subjects, an adjustment of achievement indicators to eliminate bias toward campuses with low percentages of economically disadvantaged students, and college readiness, which includes graduation rates, SAT/ACT participation rate and scores, and AP/IB participation rate and scores.

We congratulate all of our schools, not to mention the teachers and staff who make it all possible. You earned it!
