My son attended Johns as a 2nd grader during the 2006-2007 school year. He loved the school and his classmates. His teacher was excellent and really cared about every child's success. I volunteered in the classroom and briefly was a PTA board member, until we moved and had to change schools. Mrs. Rogers is awesome and the staff is excellent. I remember making snowflakes at an event just for parents. For Christmas this year, I had those snowflakes on my tree. Our experience was so great that when the school invited me to a reading event earlier this year, I jumped at the chance to go back. The key to a great experience at any school is parental involvement! Be a part of the solution, and take a proactive approach to getting involved in your child's education.

I have a student in the 3rd grade. They have achieved more this year under a certain teacher than they did in 2nd grade. The staff at Johns is wonderful. From the Lunch director to all the Principals, they really care about the students education & well being. They do have a few teachers that are average but that is the same with all schools. For the most part, it is a great and caring school. You would not be disappointed in the school unless you really do not care about your child's success. The childern are required to respect everyone they encounter and some parents just do not care about community.

I worked at Johns and the staff and teachers there are wonderful. They make learning fun and the use of thinking maps throughout the school seems to unite the school to a common goal of learning.

Quality of academic programs is good. But school does not give much importance to extracurricular activities.

Johns Elementary is the school that my children attended for Pk, K, 1, 2 grades and to be truthfull while the Pk and kinder. classes where excellent ther was much do be desired about the 1 and 2 grades. Although my children finish each grade with ease I fell that there should be more focus on testing than what is really done. On the whole I fell that at itmes my 2nd grader did not get the challenge that he needed at times.

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.
