I am a sixth grade student at Crosby this year and I think it is a really great school. Although there is a strict dress code policy and crowded hallways but other than that it is great! The teachers are awesome, there are a lot of extra curricular activites and there are a lot of music classes. Such as orchestra, band, chorus,guitar, and piano.

I feel that the education of 'regular students' is hendered-they are in classes with severe discipline problems and non english speakers and teachers are not able to spend enough time actually teaching 'regulars'. I am also concerned for the safety of students.

I have a child in 7th grade at Crosby Middle School who I am withdrawing today to put in private school in Crosby. The facilities at CMS are modern and clean and many of the teachers are very dedicated. Enforcement of the rules is very selective and a great deal of the staff dress like students, use slang like students and chew gum in the office. I felt that they were setting a bad example for my child.

This is our first year at this school, and we are very happy. The quality of Pre-AP classes is very high, discipline is great. Unfortunately it's hard sometimes to get electives like computer class, and the school doesn't have too many extracurricular activities. I know only about cheerleading and chess club. If this school has anything else they just don't provide information about it.

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.
