How do the public high schools in Corpus Christi stack up?

We analyzed newly released data from Niche.com — including comprehensive report cards, rankings and reviews — to find out how schools in your area are performing and which have made the biggest leaps over the past year.

Moody High School's overall rating improved the most among similar schools in Corpus Christi, rising from a B- to a B, according to data from Niche.

For the 2019-2020 school year, the school, located at 1818 Trojan Drive, enrolls 1,567 students. Moody High School serves a  diverse population: 93% of students identify as Hispanic. Niche gave the school mixed grades: B- on an A-D scale for academics, B+ for administration and A- for clubs and activities.

The overall ranking comes from Niche's proprietary algorithms. A school's ranking might change due to many factors, including the relative rankings of similar schools and whether a school gained or lost peers due to openings or closings. Other numbers come from current public data from the U.S. government.

Academically, 86% of Moody High School's students scored as proficient or above in math, and 54% did so in reading. That's compared to city averages of 85% in math and 60% in reading. The school's improved overall rating is notable in that it serves a less-affluent population, with 77% of students qualifying for free or reduced lunch, 20% more than the city average.

While some public high schools in Corpus Christi are moving up the ranks, others are consistently top-rated overall, including:

  • Flour Bluff High School, with an overall rating of A-.
  • Tuloso-Midway High School, with an A- rating overall.
  • London High School, rated A- overall.
