Frisco ISD students lead the way on End-of-Course exams and completion of Advanced Placement (AP) and dual credit courses, according to the Texas Education Agency’s annual Texas Academic Performance Report (TAPR).
In the five End-of-Course exams – English I, English II, Algebra I, Biology and U.S. History – administered during the 2015-16 school year, FISD students scored almost 18 percent higher than the state average. Biology and U.S. History narrowly missed a 100-percent passing rate, posting totals of 99 and 98 percent, respectively.
Students in FISD also complete more AP and dual credit courses than peers across the state and in neighboring North Texas school districts.
Additionally, FISD employs a higher percentage of teachers than most districts in Texas, with six percent more funding going to the classroom than the state average. Spending on general administration is half the state average.
