We moved to amarillo in June of 2013 and just happened to rent a home in fannin area. We had so many locals tell us to transfer but it was already too late. We came from a small town in Oklahoma and knew nothing about the schools before we got here ( or we probably would not have chose the home we did in the area) but I'm so so glad to be at fannin my daughter is a 7th grader and I am completly happy with fannin the staff has all been very helpful to this mom new to the area!! My daughter is in pre AP classes and making straight A's!! We now looking for a house to buy and I'm worried we will have to change middle schools!! A huge thanks to all fannin staff!!

My oldest son started at Fannin in 6th and was able to adjust quickly with the other students and teachers.He now is in the 8th grade and is preforming strongly. Grades have been great and he even gets involved in all the school activities!My youngest so started this year in 6th grade;before he had alot of trouble in math and needed tutoring. Now he is in advanced math and doing great! He also adjusted well with the students and teachers.Now as far as the athletic department goes i think they need different coaches.Not speaking on the female coaches;i have boys remember!As far as academically Fannin was the perfect school for my boys.

My son is a 6th grader at this school and frankly this school sucks....It's like the teachers dont really care about the students. My son's grades have dropped tremendisly within a 3wk period and no one bothered to inform me until he brought home report card i have asked time & time again for the teachers to email me weekly to let me know if works being turned in or about his behavior but i have got nothing...He wil not be returning to that school next year

I think this school does an excellent job in preparing our children for the next step. The staff works diligently with parents as well as students to ensure their success. As for cleanliness, I've seen nothing but clean, it's a school full of children so it will not be spotless!

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.
