What is the best school district in Texas and the second best in the country?

April 15th, 2016 By James Soletti in Blog.

According to the school rating website Niche, Texas has more than 1,000 school districts. The Eanes Independent School District, a tiny one near Austin, is THE BEST in the Texas and second best in the nation!  Now you know why we called our company “Eanes Properties”.

The EISD has nine schools: One high school, two middle schools and six elementary schools. The campuses all regularly receive the highest academic ratings from the Texas Education Agency. According to the Eanes ISD website, the school district also sends almost all of its graduates to college.

Of course, wealth goes a long way to explaining the district’s success.  Niche reports that expenses per student tops $18,000 at Eanes ISD, in the Austin suburb of Westlake.  The national average is $11,927.   Sports are big in the Eanes ISD.  When my girls were there they won two state volleyball championships.  Their success paid off when they both earned full athletic scholarships at UTSA.

During the 2012-2013 school year, every student at Westlake High School received an iPad.  The $1.2 million tech initiative was approved for students in grades kindergarten through seventh as well.  Eanes ISD, however, doesn’t receive perfect marks in every category.  The one weak point, according to Niche, is in the area of student culture and diversity.
