I was an 8th grade student here at Ousley in 2014, and I can honestly say that this school isn't as bad as all the other parents have been describing it as. Yes, occasionally there are fights, there is occasional bullying, but then again this is present at all schools and the administration takes care of this quickly and effectively. The students are basically divided into groups, like there is an athletic black-kids group, a skater group, a white-girl group, a choir group, a band group, the geeks, the nerds, you know the usual. As long as you don't fall into the wrong group, you'll be fine. Some teachers do what they do with a passion, others just teach what needs to be taught. The only language taught at this school is Spanish, by the way.

The only thing I can honestly complain about this school is the Athletics Department Basketball tryouts and team selections. There is no way possible the coaches pick the team based on skill. I sat and watched kids who couldn't even handle the ball play on the A team. I am not the only parent who made the comment in the stands. If you played Football, your tall and African-American you automatically make the A basketball team. It doesn't matter to the coaches that these most of these kids have major attitudes, spend time in OCS (on campus suspension) or are just down right disrespectful. The kids who showed up to tryouts everyday get put on B Team, but the once who played football or know the coach and only showed up for one day of tryouts make the A team. I think it is also a big Joke, to have a football coach teaching basketball. This B Team coach had no idea what he was doing. The plays he taught the kids made them look like a bunch of 3rd grade YMCA basketball players! It is very sad when at the end of the season, the A team kids tell the B team kids not to bother trying out next year, cause they know they will be the ones to make the team!

Horrible school to go to. Bullying is a major issue and administration is ineffective. Racism is a major issue as well- Caucasian children are a target.

Huge problem with bullying & administration fails every time to investigate properly. I have suffered this ongoing issue with two children. Children make threats & fight all the time while the children that defend themselves after being bullied so many times have to be punished & ticketed.

I am happy with the changes Ousley Jr. High has been making. As a parent I feel much more informed and involved with the school and my childs education. The automated phone calling system is wonderful. I also enjoy the PTA emails about all the different events taking place. My kids and I have also enjoyed the different fundraiser/family nights at the local resturants. It's nice to see the kids with their parents outside of school. Good Job!!!!

This school is so disorganized and it not put together well at all. My kid was threatened and all they did was send her back to class. Plus they do nothing to the 'bad' kids who are in a troubling situation, only the 'good' kids get good treatment. And STILL half the time they don't get good treatment.

Rules were set at the begainning of the yr, and now they arent kept. The dress code isnt enforced, there doesnt seem to be any discipline here what so ever. I feel my child wasted her 7th year here..

This school has great technology and language learning labs. It has a wonderful music department and a strong 8th grade athletics dept. as well. Its TAKS scores could improve but it is not because of a lack of effort from the teachers and administration who work with the 'at risk' students almost every day after school.

My son had a terrific year this past year at Ousley. We couldn't have mapped out a better year if we could have ourselves. We received tremendous support from the principal, teachers and staff. He will entering the 8th grade here in the Fall.

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.
