It is the worst school in del rio the teachers just take the students outside to play and class are only at regular level.

This is one of the best schools on earth. It's a Great alternative to public school. The teachers are very involved, dedicated, and care about the students, and the students are all dealt with properly if needed to be dealt with. The principal is great and the students are taught correctly emotionally and academically. I reccomend that every student goes to Radiance.

This is a really great school and everyone should send their kids to it. The teachers are experienced and care about us alot. I love the kids, too, because they are all really nice and welcoming.

I just withdrew my 3 daughters from San Felipe Schools. My 10th Grader and my 2 6th graders. I just enrolled them in Radiance. I love the principle and vice principle and the teachers there. They are all so very sweet and nice!! Today is just my girls 1st day. I can hardly wait for them to come home this afternoon and give me the full report. I love it that Radiance has a Uniform dress Code!! No Skin tight low cut pants nor tight shirts that look Sickening!! The girls look so Perfessional in their Uniforms this morning!! I will be happy to post another review update as we get used to the new uniformed school.

I ended up pulling my child from Radiance because it was just that bad. By February, my child had called me three times asking to be picked up from school because school had been canceled that day. Not a holiday or teacher prep day, just arbitrarily canceled. The administration was ineffective and disorganized. My child had no homework ever and no projects, presentations, memorization, or tests that needed to be studied for. No gifted program, no extracurricular, no clubs, no anything. Don't waste your time at this place.

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.
