Jarrell Independent School District – Georgetown’s smaller brother grows up


View Larger Map

You don’t hear too much of Jarrell, Tx these days. About the only thing people do know about this town is that it’s small, 15 miles north of Georgetown, and had an F5 tornado go through there back in 1997.  However, here’s one thing to add to it’s reputation:  RECOGNIZED ratings by the TEA for elementary, middle and high schools. This is a great accomplishment considering that Georgetown High School is only rated ACCEPTABLE.  Looks like “big brother” has some catching up to do.  Sherri Ewoldt, a sales rep for Jimmy Jacobs Custom Homes, wrote an article for the readers of this blog that I wanted to share with you:

Good news for families looking to relocate in a new community with great schools and an enrollment of only 650 students.  The Texas Education Agency just released the new ratings from Jarrell School District.  The elementary, middle and high school are rated RECOGNIZED for Academic Achievement for 2008 in Social Studies, Language Arts, Math, Reading, Writing and Science.   Jarrell received a Superior, the highest possible rating, on the Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas.  The district was rated on 21 finacial standards and received a perfect score.

For more information check out Sherri’s blog.  Shady Oaks Estates is great because it’s technically in Georgetown….and away from the tornado-stigmatized area of Jarrell, but the school district is in Jarrell.  The tax rate is lower because of that, and I’m sure the advantages of a smaller school system are appealing to some families as well.  Especially if that smaller high school is rated better then Georgetown’s!
