Parents are always on the lookout for the best education for their children in Texas. It's nice to know that the options close to us are worthy of statewide praise.

The Stephen F. Austin State University's Charter School was just awarded second out of all the charter elementary schools in Texas. U.S. News recently analyzed 101,279 pre-K, elementary, and middle schools in Texas.

The SFA University Charter School was also ranked #21 in the state of all Texas Elementary Schools. They have an enrollment of 255 students for grades K-5 and a student-to-teacher ratio of 15 to 1.

This Is The First Time The SFA Charter School Landed On The List

This high ranking is the first time that the school landed on this gold standard list from U.S. News. They were also ranked fourth by Niche using data from students, parents, and the U.S. Department of Education.

Coming in fourth out of the 4,614 public elementary schools in Texas is an amazing feat, and the teachers were ranked number one. That is a testament to the training they received when becoming teachers at SFA.

The number one school on the U.S. News report was the Carver Center in Midland, Texas. They have a student population of 500. They were also ranked number eight out of all Texas Elementary Schools.
