The Niche list of best charter schools in Houston recognized The Varnett Public School district with ratings of B+ for East campus and B for Northeast campus on the 2019 List of Best Charter Schools in Houston. They are among the top 30 on lists recognizing both charter elementary and charter elementary and middle schools in the Houston metro area.
“The Niche 2019 K-12 Rankings are based on rigorous analysis of academic and student life data from the U.S. Department of Education along with test scores, college data and ratings collected from millions of Niche users. Because we have the most comprehensive data in the industry, we're able to provide a more comprehensive suite of rankings across all school types. Our rankings strive to reflect the entire school experience, including academics, teachers, diversity, student life and student outcomes,” according to the Niche website.
Varnett's superintendent Dr. Margaret Stroud said, “School rankings for the Varnett campuses are important because they give our teachers, staff and students the recognition they deserve for coming together as a family to create an atmosphere of learning. I am proud of all we have been able to accomplish – especially in the last few years.”
Dr. Stroud added: “In spite of the good feelings these ratings generate, we keep our sights on the individual students. The love of learning our teachers are able to generate is our proudest accomplishment and prepares our students for a lifetime of learning and growing.”
The Varnett Public School serves more than 1600 students and most qualify for free- and reduced-price meals and scholarship assistance because they come from low-income families.
