i love Gold-Burg because it's small enough that i can know and be friends with everyone. the staff are really good and are more than exceptional teachers. i love my theatre arts teacher Mrs. Fitzner and i am very privalaged to go there.

We are new to the school district (high school) this year. Our experience so far has been completely positive. Our child has found good teachers, serious assignments, and a respectful atmosphere. Administration has been cooperative and responsive. Yes, it is a very tiny, rural school with limited activities insofar as sports, clubs, etc, but there are exceptions (a wonderful Theater course, for example). Gold-Burg has lots of old-fashioned school pride and a serious sense of mission. Added bonus: cafeteria food is rather good, according to my kid! I'll look forward to providing more specific information as the semester goes forward.

The teachers dont care about problems, and dont try to make the students interested in learning.

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.
