JB Little is a real good school. I have 2 children there since 2009. There are some teachers who just hand them work, but there are a lot more that will actually work with your child. The V.P. is very nice and understanding. I'm Glad my kids are at JB Little.

My son is new to Little and everyone has welcomed him with open arms! It is important that my son feels comfortable so he can relax and learn.

This is the best school I could ask for my 9 year old to attend. They have met and exceeded any and all expectations. I have had my daughter in 3 previous schools and have gotten soo frustrated with the lack of concern and care and dedication. I am soo happy I have found this school, and am able to transfer her to this school. I just wish I could find a house to rent in this school area so it wasn't quite a drive to get her to school. All I can say is I LOVE THIS SCHOOL!!! It's the BEST!!!

I love this school! I have my child on transfer every year so he can go here with family. My son graduated the 1st grade this year. His teacher was Meg Anderson and might I say I wish all teachers were as wonderful as she is. She genuinely cares about her students and pays attention to their intelligence level. She did more to challenge my son every day than most teachers would. On his last day of school he was easily doing second grade math.

This is a great school. I have my child on transfer so that he can go here with family, and I think it's well worth it. My son graduated first grade this year. His teacher was Ms. Meg Anderson and I wish all teachers were as wonderful as she is! She truly cares about her students and does a lot to challenge them every day, for example, on the last day of school my son was easily working on 2nd grade math! I couldn't be more proud. Little Elementary easily deserves 5 stars in all areas.

Two of my children started attending Little this year and the difference between their old school (Williams) is night and day. They are so much more happy with the treatment they have received from the whole staff and they are challenged more by the curriculum. So far, Little has been a great change for them educationally and socially and I think they will benefit greatly from having a better learning atmosphere provided at Little.

The PTA is very involved. They do tons of activities and seem to have really great, established relationship with the administration. I'm impressed!

Teachers are rude and the school has a problem controlling unruly children. The structure of the curriculum is unacceptable.

Both of my children attended Little from K-6th grades. The faculty and staff are exceptional and always kept me informed of academic progress. My son had special needs and the teachers went 'above and beyond' to help him. Great school, great teachers, great administration.

We just finished our first year there, my daughter was in Kindergarten. I was very impressed with how much she learned and how in the loop I was kept re: her progress and suggestions made for us to help her succeed. I love the school so far and am glad we moved into the area to attend it.

Little is a great school. My daughter is in Third grade and absolutely adores her teachers. She scored very well on the Taks test and is looking forward to the Math Taks. Many thanks to Mrs. Lindley and her staff for doing such a great job.

This is my children's first year at Little. This school has a great staff and principal. It is so great to see a school that is so dedicated to the children, not only in their education but in having fun as well. My kids love going to school everyday.

We moved this summer and changed from another school in AISD to J B Little. The difference is night and day! The involvement of children, staff and parents make this school a success.

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


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.
