With school for most students starting in the next couple of weeks, I found a website that tells you all the information you need to know to get your child enrolled in the best school in Texarkana.

The website Great Schools has a complete listing of all of the schools in the Texarkana area based on your zip code. The scoring system is pretty easy to read, the maximum, or best score is 10, which shows that many Texarkana schools rank pretty high. This is how Great Schools determines the individual school score:

We collect and analyze data from all 51 state departments of education and the federal government to provide analysis, insights, and school quality ratings for parents, partners, researchers, and policymakers.

Here are the top five ranked schools in the Texarkana area, according to the Great Schools website. Just remember, if you don’t see your school listed, that doesn’t mean the school did anything wrong or that it isn't a great school.
