I was looking the middle school for my son very carefully. He have a passion for languages. Also He was 7 years old when he started to have a dream about play cello. So I found Covington! I specifically apply for this school in last January :) I am very happy and very glad that my son is here! They started DUAL language in Covington on this year! i am so lucky :) My son wants to arrive at 7:30 am, and the last to leave :) - that's how it is interesting for him! The Principal and all staff are very involved in the students lives. And they allow parents to be involved in school life as much as I want like a parent. So i still can be the crazy mom who I am :D

I see like my son become more responsible for his learning and how he care about his little brother.

There is bullying and "teacher Pets" going on that is not addressed so I see some children handling life's lessons instead of learning how to handle them.

This is definitely the best Fine Arts academy in town! The art teachers in this school hit the spot with honest and open attention to kids. I have witnessed more than a few times the teachers joking alongside them or talking to them as if I would chat with my own kids. Accountability is a strong point for this school with their students. I gave 4 stars because even though I have had great experiences, there have been a few sad ones. This includes emailing thru Parent iCloud and teachers/staff not responding(at all) or voicemails left not returned. !Huge difference when I went there as a kid 30 years ago!

Middle school can be challenging transition to make for kids, especially in one of Texas's urban mega schools with many 100s of students. Covington's teachers and staff do an excellent job of maneuvering their students through these challenges. A remarkably dedicated and devoted group of educators!


Amount of homework: Agree

They give homework every other day but if they have projects that is in a core class they barely give homework out. But by giving these homework will help kids by understanding the topic.

Yes this school does because they have good teacher and they don't always pick favorites they treat everyone fair. They don't let anyone slip by if one person does it so it's fair how they treat everyone the same.

These teachers are amazing because they care about your child's future. Bullying rarley happens here but with the good friends in the school you might have a amazing time of your life in school. All of the music classes you can take they're amazing. This is just really amazing how this school turned quickly. I had amazing time of my life at this school. This is the best school that you can ever had more than baily. Baily just has a good rating because of their grades not the happiness this school is good. Or AMAZING.

This school really takes care of it's students. They are expected to carry a planning "agenda" from class to class. It's a fine arts academy with many really strong fine arts classes.
