Great School, 1 child attended and has graduated from HS, 3 more are currently attending, and 1 more in two years. Moved from Arnold MS and Cy-Fair HS area to Goodson MS and Cy-Woods schools area. My oldest had lots of trouble with being bullied, at Arnold, came home cut and bleeding a couple times from being pushed around. Started attending Goodson MS and has never had another problem. My other 3 children attending Goodson MS love the school, their teachers. The culture of the administration and what they are willing to accept as the norm is what make the biggest difference. Goodson has a zero bulling tolerance and has a culture of community.

We moved here from California where our daughter was in one of the top three school districts in the state. She was in all the top level classes getting A's. She started school here in Texas and was struggling. She tested 2.3 years behind in curriculum! I couldn't believe it! Some subjects, such as Science, were never offered in California. With the help of the school and teachers at Goodson, she managed to get A's and B's exiting the semester. They worked very hard with her to ensure her success. With there help and a great deal of dedication and hard work on her part, she prevailed. The environment at the school is excellent. The kids are good kids. The teachers are superb and highly dedicated. I am so thankful for all that this school has done!

I attended Goodson Middle School until this past year when I moved to Austin. This has got to be the best middle school I have ever attended. It is a public school but the curriculum there is the best. They have classes for every level whether you are average or you need to be in GT. (gifted and talented) It has a wonderful warm and inviting atmosphere and the teachers are great! I miss it sooo much and I am really glad I was able to attend such a wonderful and academically challenging school.

Goodson is the best middel school ever! My kids have been attending since it opened. I have never been disatisfied with the teacher/parent communication. They have very fun activities for the students and no one is ever left out.

We have recently moved into another nearby school district. I miss Goodson. The teachers all seemed to have great communication with parents. I was never in the dark about anything going on. The atmosphere itself was great for my kids --- especially compared to where we are now.

Goodson Middle School is one of the finest educational facilities in the state of Texas. I am proud of all this school has accomplished under the leadership of Principal HAmilton! It is my hope that this school will continue to grow educationaly and by the numbers!

Goodson is a well rounded establishment. The faculty takes a tremendous amount of time contacting parents to inform them of their child's development and academic participation. Children within the school appear to be happy and enjoy their enviroment. Many extracuricular programs are offered and participation is encouraged. The faculty genuinely cares about the children's development both emotionally and academically. Students are supported to give their best and worked with to ensure they are reaching their goals.

I'll be a 7th grader at Goodson this year. Let me give you my professinial opinion... Goodson is new, therefore everything is not exactaly, let's say, 'Up to scratch'. The teachers are average, I mean, they teach. The extra activities are good, they keep me tired. But the parental involment and saftey and disipline? That's another story. The parental involvement is akward because only about 50 parents 'involved'. The saftey is weird because when the principal is gone the P.E. coaches become the A.P.'s and the real A.P.'s and counselors act like the principal. Now onto principal leadership. Not many kids respect the principal, because she has a wierd saying that goes,'No matter where you go today, no matter what happens, remeber this: You are carrying presious cargo, so watch your step.' She says this every day! I even remembered this during the summer! But it can only get better. Hopefully.

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.
