The Houston Independent School District students posted “strong gains” in the recently completed school year, reports HISD:

“HISD students posted especially strong gains in math and science during the recently completed 2010-2011 school year. The number of students scoring above the national average in math now stands at 64 percent, a 6-point increase from the previous year and 9 points higher than in 2008,” the district said in a release. “In science, 63 percent of HISD students scored above the national average this year, a 7-point gain over 2010 and a 12-point gain over 2008.”
