Texas top-ranked high schools don't prepare most kids for college, data shows


October 2, 2018

A majority of students at the top-rated high schools in Texas are likely to need remedial course work when they get to college because they don't score well enough on entrance exams, a Houston Chronicle/San Antonio Express-News analysis of newly released school accountability data shows.

There are more than 900 high schools in the state that received the equivalent of an "A" or "B" rating from the state last month. But the Chronicle/Express-News analysis shows that at two-thirds of those schools, the majority of students are failing to score high enough on the SAT or ACT to be considered "college ready," increasing the chances that they'll need remedial course work in college and jeopardizing their chances of getting a college diploma.
