As a substitute, this was a decent place to work at. The staff members were very supportive and they check to make sure you are doing okay. The students behave appropriately and they will do their work. The classroom procedures were well structured. I would definitely come back!

The Jr. High Schools in my district were well below par. My child was a transfer student at Ferguson for 2010-2011 school year. Ferguson surpassed my expectations and my son excelled in all his classes.

We made athe decision to trasnfer our son to Ferguson . It was the best thing for our child . The home school he would have attended did not fufill the needs of our son we are happy and so is our son I also feel he is more productive and does not have to be distracted by dicilpine problems . The faculty is very quick to communiacte with parents .End all be all you get what you give. We have to be a team .teachers ,parents ,students. My son feels safe and loves his school and teachers .This is all that matters. K.R.Norris

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.
