I just saw these in FB. So proud of GCISD. Maybe it will start getting the recognition it deserves!

Great numbers by GC. Isn't Carroll down from last year?

Again, so proud of GCISD- I would be interested to see the actual enrollment of the applicable Carroll, GHS and CHHS senior classes and see if the NMSF percentage is higher or even equal. Sure seems like it might be. I am working on finding them and will report back if I do.

Yes it is. 22 last year, 16 this year. Looks like last year was a bit of an outlier for Carroll.

Interestingly enough, the numbers for GHS and CHHS are NOT much different than last year. This year it's 10 each, last year it was 11 for Heritage and 8 for Grapevine. http://dallas-area-schools.blogspot....finalists.html People just keep overlooking GCISD for some reason.

Here's the 2013-2014 TAPR report (most recent I can find) for Carroll HS: http://ritter.tea.state.tx.us/cgi/sa...mpus=220919003

There were 623 10th graders, who would now be 12th graders. Although that number has undoubtedly changed a little, it's probably "close enough" to work with. 16 NMSFs out of that is 2.57%, a respectable performance.

Grapevine's 2013-14 report is here. Short answer is 565 10th graders. 10 NMSF works out to 1.77%. Also very good, but not quite as good as Carroll.
http://ritter.tea.state.tx.us/cgi/sa...mpus=220906001

Colleyville Heritage had 581 10th graders, a tiny bit more than GHS. For all intents and purposes, those 2 schools are essentially equal in size. Both schools have graduating classes almost 10% smaller than Carroll
http://ritter.tea.state.tx.us/cgi/sa...mpus=220906004

Obviously, if one can get more accurate numbers on the 2015-16 classes, that would be great. That said, short answer is that CHHS and GHS remain roughly equal to each other by most metrics (although CHHS has a rep as "better" than GHS, any actual difference seems to be de minimis. Must be those apartments around GHS scaring people). Neither puts up quite the numbers Carroll Senior does, but then they both have more diverse socioeconomic student bodies than Carroll Sr. GCISD is often overlooked because it's not quite at the levels of Carroll/Plano/Coppell or FMHS, yet both high schools are usually between #11 to #15 in SAT averages among DFW open enrollment publics.

I like Southlake overall, sure, but it seems to suck up all the oxygen in the "just west of DFW airport" room. Grapevine has a historic and interesting downtown, some excellent shopping, and a good location for many commutes. Colleyville doesn't have the shopping of Southlake (although it's right next door. Like seriously, an extra 5 minute drive will kill you?), but is a little quieter and a bit more eclectic and not as...well, "Southlakey" (although if you want fancy, there are parts that are just as up there as Southlake). Yeah, I know, the football teams aren't nearly as good.

Nice to see GCISD get noticed a bit.

Only one from all of the public Arlington High schools? There's a fairly sizable Asian Community still living in Lamar High school area but the school seems to be sinking lower and lower. Back in the late 90s when my cousins went to Lamar it made US news best schools list, now it's in a free fall to the bottom. It will happen to more places though.
