Out of more than 1,000 districts across the state, the newly released rankings show Frenship as the #22 Best School Districts in Texas and the #25 Best Places to Teach in Texas.
Niche is an online platform that provides insights and reviews of K- 12 schools, colleges, and cities nationwide. The rankings are determined through a rigorous analysis of data collected from multiple state and national sources such as the U.S Department of Education, the National Centers for Education Statistics, Civil Rights Data Collection, and surveys and reviews submitted by students, staff, and parents.
Several factors are considered during the ranking process including academics, graduation rates, teacher salaries, school culture, extracurricular activities, student and staff experiences, and more.
“Frenship is a community-centered district that prides itself on a rich tradition of excellence. These rankings are a reflection of the hard work and dedication by our 11,000 students and 1,300 staff members who call Frenship home. Frenship is a special place to work and go to school because of our Frenship families,” said Frenship ISD Superintendent Dr. Michelle McCord.
Niche gave Frenship an overall grade of “A+”. In addition to ranking in the top 25 districts in Texas, Frenship came in as the #1 Best School Districts and Places to Teach within the Lubbock Area. Frenship also ranked within the top 3% of Best School Districts in America.
