On Monday, Children at Risk released its 2020 "Pandemic Edition" of the top schools in the state and by region, including San Antonio.
The statewide research and advocacy nonprofit's rankings comes in the middle of a pandemic, which has created challenges for schools. This year's ranking is based on a three-year analysis of a school's test scores because the annual State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness exam, or STAAR test, was canceled last school year because of the pandemic.
The Texas Education Agency did not release its rankings this year because the STAAR tests was not administered.
Overall, 133 schools out of 550 in San Antonio were high performing at an A or B grade, including 72 elementary schools, 39 middle schools and 22 high schools.

In addition, they were four "Pandemic Proof Schools" that received A or B grades for three consecutive years with enrollments of 75 percent or more economically disadvantaged kids. The two middle schools and two elementary schools in that ranking were IDEA South Flores Academy, IDEA Carver Academy, IDEA Carver College Preparatory and IDEA Monterrey Park College Preparatory.
Six schools were also deemed PaceSetter Schools, which are schools that do not classify as a charter or magnet program but with a student population of 75 percent or more classified as low-income and have shown significant improvements from prior years. Those schools are San Antonio ISD's Washington Elementary, Agnes Cotton Academy, Mission Academy and George E. Kelly Elementary. Somerset ISD's Sgt. Michael P. Barrera Veterans Elementary and South San Antonio ISD's Robert C. Zamora Middle School also made the list.
