The school is has come a long way from the past. There are more teachers dedicated and qualified to teach the students. There are new curriculums and activities to ensure that the students achieve. The teachers truly care for their students although they are not paid competitively to a public school.

their needs to be more activities and field trips for the junior high and high school students. Espeacially the honor students need to get informed on more stuff that is happening in school beacause since their outside they don't get informed on all things that they are suppose to. Also i think that the kids need to get more than 5 minutes after each class or subject. yes some just go to the hall and talk but aren't they suppose to! it's a break from being in class and only doing work! they need time, they are all kids! also they really need to put air conditioning in the gym and were ever it is needed.please fix the schoolforthe kids!

This school does not have good teacher/student ratios. They don't have much to offer for elementary as far as extracurricular activites, and the level of parent involvement is very low.

I am very disappointed with DISD's Seagoville High School. There seems to be a lack of communication between the administrators and staff, there seems to be many teachers that seems to have given up and are looking only to get the children in and out.

The quaility of academic programs leaves alot to be desired. Their are many extracurricular programs available. The school seems to be at the academic level of a 70's school, not quite as high tech as I am use to. The school student body seems to be content but there unaware of what there missing by not attending a traditional school with modern faciliy's.As a whole the school is OK if yout not looking to go to college but it leaves alot to be desired.

Although A+ profess's to care about the children...The owner won't allow the school to progress beyond where it is. Her focus is mainly on the honors program and it has no set curriculum.

Students are very important at A+. Everyone can participate in all activities, athletics, color guard, band etc. If students are willing to put forth the effort they can succeed here. They stress safety and security. The teachers care about the students. Parents are encouraged to participate.

Great school where the teachers take the students where they are and bring them up. All students are encouraged to be the very best they can be. The teachers care about the students... like I have never seen before.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) was used to test students in English language arts and mathematics in grade 11. The grade 11 exit Level TAKS is a high school graduation requirement. TAKS 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.
