Posted February 14, 2014

This is my daughter first year at Hutcheson Junior High we move here from another state and as soon that I saw this school my heart went to my stomach. I knew that it was going to be trouble. I did'nt move here for my daughter to attend a not so pleasant school since she have been attending its been nothing but trouble. My advice to parents even if can not afford to live in a lavish community with grade A schools please do your research thorough.

As a substitute, this is an okay place to work at. There will always be students who are very loud and getting distracted from their task, but that is manageable. Some staffs are welcoming and other just seem to not want to work with you. There are some gangs in this school, but that's how it is for a lot of junior and high schools. Keep in mind, teachers are allowed to say "SHUT UP" among the students to get the class to quiet. Shocking and surprise but that is true and as a substitute, you are okay to use this! I wouldn't shout just to be on the safe side! Be more firm among these students and you should do fine. Some are very slow and distracted when doing their work, some are really good and finish on time.

okay i started going to hutch this year and i was a little nervous because of the reviews. But I am sooooo glad that i went to hutch. Yes there are a couple of girls that have been pregnant and a handful of boys who sell or use drugs but the teachers are awesome. All of the teachers listen to what the students have to say and hutch feels like home. therefore dont be afraid to send yor child to hutch. GO CHAPARRALS!!!!!!!!

I am a teacher here at Hutch. This school has fantastic students and fantastic spirit. I have taught at other schools before and Hutch does seem less unified. For example, you only see the people in your own hallway. The teachers all need to get together. Once Hutch feels like a home, the teachers and students are happier. I love teaching at this school, we have fantastic students! Go Chaparrals!

I am a student here at Hutch Jr. High and I think that this school has done exeptionally weell. In some cases tho, most students are not encouraged to do their best. They play around in the classrooms, barely getting any work done. Some girls are pregnant and alot of drug usage between the students have been rumored. Be careful who you hang with it actually affects your life in the future. So if you are a parent thinking about enrolling your child here, please reconsider your option.

My son seems to be doing well. The teachers and principals really care. We as parents need to be more involved with school functions! Lets support our school!

My daughter seems to love the school. She has brought up her math grade from 60 to 80 due to there tutoring program. I think so far the school has been fairly good.

Posted November 6, 2007

During my two years at Hutcheson Jr. High, I encounter many things. Basically fighting, drug usage, and bad participation was shown during that time. The kids would usually play in class and never listen to their teachers. Some students talk back at their teachers or made a fuss. Also the principal at that time didn't able to make this school partcipate. The classes and teachers was exceptionally great even though I couldn't learn in class sometimes. There was gang members and other terrible things surrounding the school, I couldn't understand the fact that anyone could able to help this school.


Posted April 7, 2004

It's been my experience that the school is not really concerned about education and the students are not encourged to excel. There's a lot of gang activity and drugs in this school. Student's also take alcohol to school in other containers. Approximately 2/3 of the student body is involved with drugs.

The staff seems to do the best they can with what they have to work [with] as with most districts. I'm sure that budget is a factor. I would like to see more done to ensure safety within the school. My experience there has always been pretty pleasant [especially] in dealing with the staff of the principal s office.

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.
