The best school in the city and is the best school in the ccisd. My kid loves it here


Posted February 17, 2013

I am a student at Kaffie myself and I really like it here. I have been to a few other middle schools but this place really seems to be the place for anyone, no matter who they are.

DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD TO KAFFIE MIDDLE SCHOOL! The Education and the staff are decent, but the children..! I have never seen such disrespect and behavior in all of my life! My father is a police officer and it seems like every day he gets a call about trouble making kids! Not only is the behavior atrocious don't get me started with the language! It breaks my heart that I hear and see kids talking like this. There is a complete lack of discipline in this school. If that isn't enough then there are good kids that get mixed with bad kids and almost all of the good kids turn bad. If for any reason you can't or won't send your child to any other middle school, THEN MOVE OR HOMESCHOOL!!!! Kaffie is the worst school I have ever seen.

I love it, and the students are great! I believe the Pre-Ap classes are challenging enough for my daughter and she usually has homework. I have had some issues with some staff but they were resolved quickly. Some of course are always more concerned with others. I really recommend it and think it's the best public middle school in town.

The school is decent although class sizes are large. They do not have enough advanced classes for the children. Discipline is a problem here. There is ALOT of cussing, insubordination, dress code violations, and disrespect going on.

I am very impressed with Kaffie Middle School. The principal is awesome and the pre-ap classes are challenging. It is a really good mix of kids and they all seem to respect one another. No problems with our children going to school there. I would recommend it.

Kaffie is a great school my son has attended from 6th-8th grade. the teachers call me and e-mail me with any concerns or questions they have. My son is challanged by their AP classes and their teachers! Some of the other ratings said that they teach for the TAKS but all schools teach for one test or another its just how they teach the information and what other information they add to that. Kaffie offers all of this!!!!

My son is attending Kaffie and is currently in 8th grade. He is in honors courses and I have yet to have any discipline problems with him. The teachers keep me updated and my husband and I are very involved with his school work. I believe if you guide your child in the right direction and keep on top of their behavior you should be alright! No problems with KMS

I would say that compared to many of the middle schools in this town, this is one of the better ones. There are going to be problems in different areas of all schools. We as parents need to get involved to make sure that our children are learning up to the standards that need to be met and feel comfortable at their school.

Run, don't walk away from Kaffie. They teach the TAKS test! There is no discipline. Behaviorally challenged kids (the politically correct term for juvenile delinquents) so disrupt classes that the kids who are there to learn cannot. Knowing what I know now, I will not sent my child back to this school. Please do what you have to do to save your child from Kaffie. Do not send your child here. Any fool can learn from his own mistakes. Don't be a fool like me. Learn from my mistakes. Send your kids elsewhere.

Kaffie Middle School is the worst school my son was in. Although he made straight A's, he was not challenged and was not taught lessons he would use in high school. The teacher even made deals with the students that they would not have homework for a month is they behaved. That shows lack of judgement and makes a parent ask what their child is learning there. Their was no discipline, respect, challenge, or attention one would want. I immediately dropped my son out of the school and into a better quality school in the area. I recommend that you don't put your child there.

My daughter is currently enrolled at Kaffie Middle School. Educators seem to lack compassion, and patients for students. Every student deserves the chance to learn no matter what level of difficulty.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted July 7, 2006

Both of my daughters have attended Kaffie and both times I have experienced a lack of respect and attention and lack of communication with the parents. I would not refer any parent to this school

I had 1 son who went through from 6-8th grades and I had no problems with him however my son did not feel comfortable in the school. I have another son enrolled who is now in 6th grade and also is not comfortable. I don't feel there is a challenge and for the kids to and not enough discipline.

Myself and my daughter really liked the school. I would say that this is one of the best schools in the area. I have four kids and have first hand knowledge of the middle schools.

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.
