The National Center for Educational Achievement (NCEA), a department of ACT, Inc., recognized George West Primary as a 2010 NCEA Higher Performing School. George West Primary received Higher Performing (HP) recognition in the following areas:

• Growth in Reading and Mathematics

•Commended Performance in Reading

The Higher Performing Schools (formerly known as Just for the Kids Schools) are identified by two measures: consistent improvement in student achievement from previous years (growth) and/or absolute student achievement using the school’s Commended Performance results on the spring 2010 TAKS (Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills) test. NCEA’s higher performing methodology controls for school and student demographics to allow for an apples-to-apples comparison of school achievement and to demonstrate that with the commitment of educators, all schools can have success no matter the zip code. NCEA provided award certificates to each Higher Performing School and the district.
