Congratulations to Eastside Memorial High School in Austin, Texas, a Talent Development High School! For the first time in 13 years, Eastside “met” all of the state’s accountability standards and raised its graduation rate from 70 percent in 2012 to 94.4 percent in 2014. Just two years ago, Eastside was threatened with closure because of poor performance. The Austin Statesman reported on the school’s successes, as did the Austin Independent School District, in this press release.
