TEA has released our accountability rating for this year. Shepherd High School received a rating of a B which was a move forward from a C the previous year. This accomplishment was the fruition of everyone's collective efforts to increase the academic achievement of our students, as well as career readiness through certifications. The new rating system has the ability to reward and recognize the hard work of all of our students and staff. Our growth was tremendous which led to an added distinction for Top 25% Comparative Academic Growth. We look forward to the continued success of our Pirate Nation!
In accordance with the Texas State Plan for the Education of Gifted/Talented students, Shepherd ISD will begin taking nominations for kindergarten and newly-enrolled students in grades 1-12 for gifted and talented screening. Effective February 1, anyone interested in the educational welfare of these students may nominate them for assessment.
Nomination forms are available at each campus. The forms must be returned to the front office by February 28, 2020. For more information about the screening and identification process, parents may contact the school’s counselor.
The Mission of our school is to provide a safe and enriching learning environment where the whole student is nurtured and developed. Our teachers and administrators pledge to support the academic and emotional wellbeing of each and every student. Students will leave our school prepared with skills and knowledge that will give them advantages throughout their future educational and life experiences. Our rigorous standards challenge all students to rise to their full potential and become the best global citizens they can be.
