MARBLE FALLS — The latest TAKS scores released by the state for Marble Falls High School show a vast improvement over results last year that rated the campus as academically unacceptable.

The new scores paint a much brighter picture for student achievement, said Eric Penrod, director of secondary education programs for the Marble Falls Independent School District.

“Based on these numbers, if the state was going to issue ratings this year we would be edging extremely close to ‘recognized’ at the high school,” he said.
