The teachers are great especially mrs Ford and Mrs. Keilbas. There is some concern about respecting the dress code.

I have an 18 year old daughter that attended Short kindergarten to 6th grade and it was a wonderful experience. Now I have a 4 year old who is starting the Short Pre-K program and we could not be more proud to be able to do this!

We moved into arlington not to long ago, and luckly we had the chance to put my son at short. His teacher is mrs. Harrell and she has been nothing but awesome! she is very interactive with us, and lets us know how it is that we can help my son at home. He has improved 100% and i'd like to that her for all her efford in helping us. Thank you mrs. Harrell! :-)

This is by far the best school I have ever had experience at. The principal is amazing and the teachers. My son had Mrs. Ford and my nephew had Mrs. Hathaway, amazing women! We bought a house and moved last year and I have regretted it every since. I have a challenging child, some would say, but at Short they made us feel loved and welcomed. I don't know about all of the teachers or anyone else's experience, but from mine its a 10! I am actually trying to find a way back in to this school. If your considering enrolling your child...do it! If your child is in 1st, you should ask for Mrs. Ford, she's the best!

We have been at Short for 3 years, and overall it is a great school. The principal, Ms. McCollum is amazing. I can't imagine a better principal who loves the kids and staff. A good school starts from the top down. Short has excellent, dedicated teachers in our experience. They really care about the students and in my experience listen to the parents for ways to work with each child's learning style. My kids love music, art, and PE. They have incredible teachers for all three of these subjects and the school places an emphasis on music and art. Parent involvement could be much better. There are lots of volunteers for field trips, but when it comes to PTA and other areas, it is very difficult to get enough help. You see the same parents over and over helping. We are proud that our kids go here.

The school is fine, for some, not us. We can't seem to get the teachers to listen to constructive ways for our children who learn differently, to succeed. The curriculum tends to favor the slower learning children and extra projects and advanced learning alternatives have never been available on a 'real' level. Orchestra instructor is Excellent! Lots of turnover in the office which seems to set a confusing example for my family. We're moving out of AISD.

Challenging honors classes with teachers that care about student's performance and communicate well with the parents. Not experienced with any extracurricular activities. Music is a regular course, choir is available starting 4th grade. Teachers are open to parent involvement and the school has a good spirit. Children feel a connection to the teachers & to the Principal & Asst. Principal. I've had a very satisfying experience with my children attending this school.

I Love Short Elementary! It has been a part of my familys lives for over 6 years now. In fact my daughters father went to the school years ago. The education is excellent, and the teachers are also. I wouldn't want my girls to go anywhere else!

I went to Short 4 years ago from kindergarden through 6th grade. I loved it! I miss all of you teachers, especially Mrs. Lemmonds!

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.
