MWISD gets mixed TAPR results


On the positive side, Mineral Wells High School experienced a dropout rate of under 3 percent. Also Ruelas said he was pleased to see that students, for the most part, were performing at the same level across the board, regardless of race or demographic.

“That’s a positive,” he said. “It basically shows there isn’t one subgroup that’s being taught better than the other.”
