Poor communication-Administration and staff ignore emails and calls. Students are encouraged to buy the school t-shirt and PE uniforms but the school runs out of uniforms and then require a gray t-shirt but it can't be the gray school t-shirt! Lockers are available but not assigned to students. Afterschool the halls are filled with rowdy kids With little or no supervision. Lots of rules and regulations but very little leadership, organization or consistency. Classes aren't challenging. This school is a huge disappointment and the administration either ignore or dismiss complaints so nothing changes-

We got an apartment close by just so my son could go to school there. He loves school now which was not the case in elementary. The principal and the 2 assistent principals are always smiling and around where the kids see them so that they do whats right. He loves his teachers. His sweet science teacher calls with good phone calls and notes a lot and his math teacher sends a news email informing us of what is upcoming. The school has a good feel to it. My son is real involved and interested in learning and he doesn't come home with loads of worksheets like before. His teachers are always available for extra help and helped me get through the 1st kid going to junior high transition smoothly. He loves it there and is very happy which makes us happy. It's a happy feeling school and the teachers and office staff all care for there students. He wants to be a rapping science teacher now and I know that is because he thinks school is fun and it should be fun. LOL! We made the right choice in sending him to Nolan Ryan and are looking forward to the same success in our other 2 children going there. I like the way they run things and the order they seem to have.

Nolan Ryan junior high is a great place to learn. The classes are challenging and the teachers really try to engage students in the learning process. The fine arts department is fantastic and the academic teachers are highly qualified. There are also lots of successes in sports. High expectations for class work as well as behavior is present. I recommend sending your child there.

Nolan Ryan is awesome! The students excel in academics, athletics, and fine arts. Teachers put in long hours. Bullying is no greater and much less than most jr. High schools. Each time a bullying incident has been presented to the staff, it has always been addressed. The school can't address what they don't know. I advise parents to check out the school for yourself and come to your own conclusion.

Some of the teachers are not clear and concise with instructions. Students are failing every which way because of unspecific instructions and incompetent teachers. Teachers expect students to just understand what they want their students to do without giving examples or showing the proper process of getting the correct answer. Some teachers (not all) expect too many things from developing minds. Instead of constructive, it is bashing and hateful. My child is not passing PE because she did not hit two volleyballs over the net! How can you expect an inexperienced child to hit 10/10 volleyballs over the net each time?! Also the PE teachers expects the children to run 11 minutes!!! Not all children have this type of stamina!!!

This school has a terrible issue with bullying. I had to take my child out of here to protect him. I'm not going to say the staff doesn't try, but they still aren't doing enough to solve the problem.

My husband and I are currently considering either selling our house and moving or putting our son into private school. We witnessed students talking, sleeping, playing, listening to IPods during class, teachers give nothing less than a 70- even if it isnt earned, many teachers have little control of the classes and my son hasn't passed TAKS and the STARR test has no consequence as kids are "passed along" regardless if they are able to perform at the standard level. I am VErY disappointed in this school. My son prev attended HISD and was a honor student, he is now failing many classes. The teachers are very unprofessional and come dressed in yoga pants, flip flops and T-shirts.. and it carries over into their teaching ability as well.

Nolan Ryan is great i love all the teachers there and they have fixed the bullying problem by hiring a mean assistant principle it is a great school!

I agree with previous poster. Bullying is rampant and it is tolerated and never addressed. I am sending my children to private school after this horrible experience. Trashy behavior is the norm and I highly regret exposing my kids to this. I chose one star because you have to choose one- otherwise I give it zero stars.

Nolan Ryan doesn't put much interest in solving the bullying issues in their campus. They are the worst. My kid could've been killed on their campus and they didn't do squat to discipline the bully! The teachers give grades without checking the students work and kids do whatever and aren't being watched. What has the school system developed to be?!

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


Texas uses Accountability Ratings to indicate the overall performance of each school and district. The ratings are based on TAKS test results, dropout rates for grades 7 and 8 and school completion rates for grades 9 through 12. Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
