Posted May 29, 2007

The teachers are unresponsive to emails and are hard to communicate with due to the number of students at this school. The halls are overcrowded and wild in between classes. And the little I contact I did have with the principal and assistant principle were not very receptive. Needless to say I withdrew my daughter as soon as I could.

I have gone to this school for two years now and it is really not that bad. This year our TAKS score were apparently good. I got commended on all three of my test except science. I admit that we don't have the best teachers. Apparently they are teaching me something if I got commended. Mr. Balentine is one of the best teachers there. He keeps the parents informed ,and my mom loves that! You don't get much teachers like that. Mrs. Maddox is also great and I don't even have her. She also teaches History like Mr. Balentine. I just wish more teachers at my school were like them.

The principal does not seem to respond to attempts to contact him; this is true of several of the teachers as well. Ms. Maddox, the History Teacher, is excellent and has almost made up for the poor overall educational experience my son has received at this school.

This school is horrible. The students are disrespectful and the teachers just turn the other way. Don't send your child to this 'school'.

Very eclectic mix of inner-city, rural and exclusive suburb kids. Great access to sports and extracurriculars. Double promotion available while staying with same age peers.

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.
