Faubion MS Ranked #1 in 2018 State Accountability
Each year the Texas Education Agency groups each campus in the state into "Comparison Groups" based on criterion that place similar campuses into groups that can be most fairly compared based on research-based demographic criterion. The schools are placed into a group of 40 schools that are most alike across the state of Texas. These groupings help determine the overall rankings within the comparison groups and those rankings determine the coveted Distinction Designations, considered the highest award that individual campuses can earn each year based the State's Accountability System.
We are extremely proud to be ranked #1 in the State of Texas. Our staff, students and parents all played a pivotal role in earning such a great honor. As you can see from the full list, our comparison group includes highly regarded schools from highly regarded school districts across the state. We are also proud to have earned four Distinction Designations:

Faubion Middle School is proud to announce that we have earned our High Reliability School Level 2 Certification. The HRS framework, based on 40 years of educational research, defines five progressive levels of performance that a school must master to become a high reliability school—where all students learn the content and skills they need for success in college, careers, and beyond. The HRS framework does not add any new initiatives or replace many of the effective practices that already make Faubion a great school. Instead, this framework shows how best practices work together and provides indicators to empower districts and schools to measure their progress on attaining five increasing levels of reliability. There are five levels of HRS Certification:
Level 1 – Safe and Collaborative Culture
Level 2 – Effective Teaching in Every Classroom
Level 3 – Guaranteed and Viable Curriculum
Level 4 – Standards-Referenced Reporting
Level 5 – Competency-Based Education
Using the framework and indicators, districts and schools can drive permanent, positive, and significant impacts on student achievement by synthesizing multiple complex initiatives into one harmonious system.
