Vega ISD has many involvement opportunities and welcomes students and parents to engage in their child's education. The district, along with all three campuses received an A rating. The state assigns a letter rating system from A-F based on STAAR/EOC scores, student progress, CTE programs, SAT/ACT scores and closing achievement gaps. Each district is rated as a whole, while each campus gets an individual rating based on the same criteria. Vega ISD prides itself on small class sizes and a family atmosphere.
