Report cards for 535 schools in and around Bexar County are out.
While there are some great schools across the area, the study completed by Children at Risk finds a lot of work still needs to be done.
"Parents need to be interested in what's happening in schools, and making sure you're putting your child in great schools--or getting involved in making sure there are changes" said Dr. Bob Sanborn with Children at Risk. By the numbers, Sanborn said San Antonio schools are lagging.
"Overall, San Antonio has a lot of schools that are underperforming--about 75% get a "D" or "F" in the rankings" Sanborn said.
He told 550 KTSA News setting goals really helps.
"Most importantly, really having very high expectations for our students. We're seeing examples of those in some of the schools that are overperforming, we need to see more of that" Sanborn said.
