It is a great school for everything. They have awesome and nice teachers. And, they teach what you need to know and in a good order to where you can understand it. I love this school! And, it is not hard for a student from Forest Meadow to say that because they make learning fun!

If you have a high achieving child, they do well. If you have a normal child, it is difficult. If you have a child with special needs, go elsewhere. Highly competitive environment with great extracurricular activities, but we wanted academics to be the most important with extracurricular secondary. Very cliquish.

I believe Forest Meadow is a great School for any child to attend,however I think that the staff should investigate any queries that may come thru there office and please do not assume a child is guilty of anything due to his or her size or race. It would be nice to see the school acknowledge all cultures doing holidays. Currently the sign outside does not acknowledge Martin Luther King but instead it is honoring the trustees and that is ok to because they work hard as well but give the props to History. Be Fair our children see and do as we do. Thank you FMJH staff.

Forest Meadow has been a great school for my son. They provide positive motivation for kids that are excelling academically through recognizing them with awards and having a chance to be on the National Honor Society. They have taken field trips to local colleges so that kids could get a feel for what college life would be like. They also hold kids accountable when they do not perform in the classroom by not allowing them to play sports when their grades fall below a 70 during a current six week cycle. They also have a good handle of controlling fights and gang activity. They also have good teachers in the Pre-AP courses.

The parent involvement is outstanding. There are a lot of discipline problems and the student teacher ratio is to large in the regular classes.

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.
