I am trying to research to what colleges (other than UT Austin) kids who graduate from Leander ISD go. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I can't seem to find anything on the net.

neddy is correct about the school's May issue of the school paper (CPHS anyways). It tells exactly where all the kids go each year.

Good information. Nice to hear the individual schools post this info.

Researching info on an ENTIRE school district rarely delivers useful info.

Kids attend schools....not districts.

Off topic but got this in mail today about Eanes. How does Leander ISD compare?

All nine schools in the Eanes Independent School District have received “Exemplary”status in the 2008 school accountability ratings released by the Texas Education Agency. Only 12 percent of all schools statewide were designated as Exemplary.Westlake High School, which improved its rating from Recognized a year ago, is the only 9th-12th grade 5-A high school in the state to be rated Exemplary. Of all high schools, only 3.4 percent received that ranking. At the middle school level, only 5.6 percent of schools statewide were Exemplary, including EISD’s Hill Country Middle School and West Ridge Middle School.

What reason was given for Westlake going from "Recognized" to "Exemplary". What do those terms represent?

If data such as "only 3.4%" of Texas HSs having received this rating is available, it would be great to know the data behind these terms.

It means that few students at those schools fall into one of the sub-groups that traditionally have trouble passing the TAKS test.

I didn't find a listing for LHS. But I imagine its really similar with just a sprinkling of more selective schools b/c of the IB students at LHS.
