The TAKS score is what is used to rate schools and districts within those 4 groups. There is more to a district's performance than one test...

At every grade level in every area tested, student achievement on
statewide tests consistently surpasses statewide achievement levels --
in some areas by as much as 27 percentage points. On the 2007 test,
performance for all students was above 90% in writing (97%), social
studies (95%) and reading/language arts (95%).
• On the 2006-07 Texas accountability system, 10 campuses are ranked
“Exemplary,” 25 are “Recognized” and seven are “Acceptable.”

SAT scores

2004 2005 2006*
KISD 1100 1099 1614
U.S. 1026 1028 1518
Texas 992 995 1484

ACT scores

KISD 23.2 23.3 22.9
U.S. 20.9 20.9 21.1
Texas 20.2 20.2 20.3

The truth about seven meadows is it is a great community! Great community landscaping and planning. Newland (developers of Cinco and 7M) did a great job. The one drawback is the traffic on Fry Road leading to grand parkway near the HEB and other shops is crazy and will only get worse and they build out further west on Fry. Katy is booming, and probably won't slow down anytime soon especially with KBR moving their corporate campus out to Katy soon.

I think I can deal with the traffic seeing as though everything that I could possibly need would be right in the area. I just hope my house sells. Thanks for the info.
