The committment of the teachers to have a one on one relationship is exceptionally good. Ranked #13 amongst 250 schools in 24 districts in the middle income category. School is very diverse and sits in a quiet subdivision. School boundaries include the wealthiest and also impoverished kids in Arlington, yet no one would know it, including the kids.

I love Pope Elementary. I have subbed there for a couple of months and enjoyed it so much. The teachers there are awesome and are very involved in the student's learning process.

This is my son's first year at Pope, and I am so elated that we transfered here. He's in second grade, and I feel as though we got here just in time. The teachers have been so helpful, and the principals are always available to see you. Even though we will be transferring out of the area soon, you can believe that I'll be willing to pay the extra fee to send him here next year. We have both had such an enjoyable year here.

Both of my daughters are still at Pope. We have moved out of the area. And we are paying the transfer fees to have them there. Great school. My daughters love going to school. They are learning at a higher level. I wouldn't take them out of Pope for anything. Great teachers!

Both my sons have already been through Pope, and my daughter now attends. The curriculum is excellent. Both my sons flew through junior high with top grades because they had such an excellent foundation. A high school coach told us they count on the Pope kids for sports--they know when report cards come out, with few exceptions, it's all the Pope kids who pass and can continue to play! My sister teaches in a private school (which costs $10K a year per student) and she said the Pope curriculum is better than at her school. Pope was recommended to us by an AISD principal (at another elementary school), who told us no school in North Texas can compare.

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.
