I'm not the source... just posting a link again to this interesting site:

Dallas, Texas Area School Information: 2013-2014 Percent of Economically Disadvantaged Students in Suburban Elementary Schools in Northern Half of DFW area


I learned that Lewisville ISD might have the greatest range, among its various elementary campuses, from most to least economically disadvantaged (ED). Among those elementary schools are Bridlewood (0.8%), Liberty (1.2), Castle Hills (1.5), Heritage (1.8)... Hedrick (83.0), Lewisville (83.1), Lakeland (87.4), and Central (92.5). It must make for some interesting board meetings. Plano is close behind though.

Aside from LISD, the 80%+ ED suburban elementaries are almost entirely Denton, Plano, Garland, Richardson, and Carrollton-Farmers Branch. And the 5%- ED campuses are almost all Frisco, Carroll, Keller, Grapevile-Colleyville, Allen, and Plano.

Special mention to HPISD for a perfect 0.0% disadvantaged again this year.


For context, about 50% of all US public school kids and 60% of TX public school kids are eligible for free/reduced lunch.

http://www.nytimes.com/2015/01/17/us...tion.html?_r=0

Although to be clear, a family can be up to 4x the official poverty income and still qualify for free/reduced lunch, and hence be counted as ED.

No, A Majority of US Public School Students are Not In Poverty

Grapevine-Colleyville also has a wide range: Timberline is at 76.9 and Colleyville is at 2.0.
Guess which school is also on the low-performing list?

The really low percentages in various parts of Keller and Frisco are a big part of why I'm not terribly impressed with either district. Given the demographics, some of the HS they feed into should be top 10 easily...but they're not.

No surprise, the elementaries in the top 20 of that list are almost all in the "usual suspects".

The Lewisville ISD stat isn't surprising in terms of disparities between campuses. This has long been the case in that district, as it covers an extremely large area spanning multiple cities: The Colony, Lewisville, Highland Village, Flower Mound & North Carrollton.

Marcus HS & Flower Mount HS have always been the top performing campuses in that district, and coincidentally have the least # of ED students of all the LISD high schools.

And here he updated the site with the list for the southern sector.

Dallas, Texas Area School Information: 2013-2014 Percent of Economically Disadvantaged Students in Suburban Elementary Schools in Southern Half of DFW Area

That's a lot of kids who qualify for free/reduced lunch.

The ten schools with highest % are all in Arlington ISD. Mansfield, Burleson, Sunnyvale, Forney, and Midlothian all have several schools among the lowest %.

I just learned that Sunnyvale has one elementary school for the entire ISD. Not bad!

And, another update! Here are the % economically disadvantaged students in Dallas, Irving and Fort Worth ISD elemantaries.

Dallas, Texas Area School Information: 2013-2014 Percent of Economically Disadvantaged Students in Dallas ISD, Ft. Worth ISD and Irving ISD


The DISD list of those with less than 90% poor students reads like a list of "usual suspects" from this forum:

14.5 - Lakewood
21.2 - Travis TAG 4th-5th
23.5 - Stonewall Jackson
28.3 - Hospital/Homebound (106 students PK-12th grade)
43.4 - Dealey Montessori
52.4 - DeGolyer
53.3 - Withers
62.8 - Harry Stone Montessori
63.9 - Hexter

74.8 - Rosemont
76.0 - Jerry Junkins
78.8 - Robert E. Lee
81.1 - Adelle Turner
81.3 - George H.W. Bush
84.1 - Walnut Hill
84.3 - Kramer
84.5 - Sanger
84.7 - Oran Roberts
86.9 - Lipscomb
87.1 - Nathan Adams
87.3 - Thelma Richardson
89.4 - Seagoville
89.6 - Dan Rogers

And then the remaining one hundred and thirty elementary schools in DISD all have 90% + poor student population.

For comparison, there are about 120 elementary schools in the northern suburbs with fewer poor students than Lakewood Elementary, which within the context of DISD appears to be a "wealthy" outlier.

Looks like all the rich people left Preston Hollow Elementary after the "racial grouping" was exposed. Laura Bush sent her daughters to that school back in the 1990s.

President Bush was elected Governor in 1994. His daughters were at Hockaday prior to moving to Austin. Not sure how long the girls lasted at Preston Hollow Elementary, but it could not have been long. We are on our second house in Preston Hollow and I am not aware of any kids on either street sending their kids to Preston Hollow Elementary. At the last house, there was one family on the street that sent their kids to Dealy.
