Austin ISD students are exceeding the achievements of their peers again, as more AISD grads continue their college educations beyond their freshman year. A recent report using data from the Class of 2013 shows that the number of AISD students who enroll in college and then proceed to a second year exceeds the national average by 13 percentage points at four-year universities*.
At two-year colleges, AISD exceeds the national average by 9 percentage points.
Among the most significant indicators of whether an AISD student would continue in college for a second year included whether they were in the top quartile GPA, whether they submitted a Free Application for Student Aid and whether they passed Algebra I by grade 8.
