DENISON, Tex. -- Good news arrived this week for the Denison Independent School District and their TAKS Test scores. Officials say students scored higher than their peers in 26 of the 27 testing areas, a drastic improvement from last year.
The largest difference was a middle school score that was 20 points above the average. Students did not exceed the state average in sixth grade math, but officials say they are working over the summer to develop the best strategies for next year.
"We’re pleased, but it's like always. The next year you've got to look and see where you can actually bring them up even more," Denison ISD superintendent Dr. Henry Scott said Wednesday.
School district staff work with students in groups and one-on-one as needed to help every child perform their best.
