This school has done great for me. I have worked my way back to 'ab' honor roll and have made lots of friends.

I am very proud that my daughter is attending Lowell Smith Middle School. She is a straight A student and very involved in extracirricular activities and we both know that the two would not be possible if it weren't for the wonderful teachers. The office staff is also fabulous the two times I have had a problem Mr. Allen is very quick to resolve and we appreciate that.

All I can speak for is the children that are bi polar, add, adhd, Paranoid Schizophrenic or has any type of mood disorder. The school does not know how to treat these type of child fairly. These children need to be dealt with differently and CISD has no idea how to do that. After 7 years of dealing with it I have choosen to home school my children in our christian home. I have homeschooled 4 years and we are in several homeschool groups that literally have hundreds of children in them that have chose not to be apart of CISD. This is my opinion and im sure there are sevral others out there that fill the same way and just do not post it here.

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.
