November 18, 2008 My daughter has attended Vela Middle School for two years and it is my opinion, as a parent, that this school has encouraged her to exhibit great enthusiam, ambition and motiviation. Academically, my daughter has excelled. Sport activities have provided her with great self-esteem and self-discipline. The teachers and coaches inspire their students tremendously. I, personally, rate Vela Middle School as 'excellent'.

Vela is now more disiplined with uniforms; and strick rules; the band is amazing along with the chess team who reaches state level; academics are extreme
—Submitted by a student


Posted July 3, 2008

lack of disipline children have lack of respect towards teachers although their test scores are extremely above average all they need to learn how to do is have respect and dignity
—Submitted by a student


Posted October 5, 2007

The new principal has brought a positive environment to the school. The school has been a TEA Recognized school 5 years in a row. It has also been honored as a Texas Business and Education Coalition Honor Roll school two years in a row. Vela has won the UIL Academic championship 13 years in a row in their district. Their chess team have been state champions on more than one occassion.

Dress codes not enforced. School seems to lack discipline. Poor dissemination of information regarding policies and events. Overall seems to be mismanaged.

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.
