I have been a student here at W.E Greiner for almost three years now. I started from 6th grade , and yes i admit its scary to go somewhere where you dont know anyone. But believe me when you look at the school and go in your going to feel save, welcome and inspired by many talented students. This school is very special even though kids dont know each other they are welcoming to eachother. They have sone of the best teachers. They are supporting and wheb you need help they would be there for you . At first you might feel pressured because its a new school new teachers etc. But as you go along it is a great opportunity for your future . W.E Greiner is the best middle school in the country. Now im in the 8th grade andd have joined the AVID family which helped me get organized and on task . " We have PRIDE"

I don't believe it's 100% a healthy environment for the students, but I can say that the knowledge and learning performance is really high, and in that area I have no complains for the school. I am an ex student

I love this school! The teachers are great and always help you if you don't understand something. The discipline is very well handled by administrators and principles.

Greiner has the best Teachers & Staff! Love all the Academy too! Band, Choir, Dance, Theather, Orchestra, Mariachi, Visual Arts....It can't get any better than that!

The administration is too relaxed. They leave the disciplinse up to the teachers. The administrators don't support the teachers at all with discipline.

My daughter goes to this school and actually it's really surprising to me that I do not have any complaints, I came to Greiner and it's really came a long way, the teachers are really nice and they have so many teachers securing inside/outside school premises. I debated on allowing my child to go to Greiner but I'm really happy with my choice. Great job! Principal Gomez

Hello, I am a parent of a student at W.E Greiner M.S. I have some bad reviews, sad to say. The restrooms are horrible. The school lunches also, how is a kid to go through the day with something so small. Also, non-nutritional. This school can do better. Also the students. Over all, great academics! That's what makes Greiner what it is today. Well, I will check the possiblities to change.

I am very happy with my daughters progress at WE Greiner. She is a visual art student and is doing very well in all subjects. I like the feedback I receive from her teachers.

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.

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.
