I have to say that when I first decided to change my son into this school I was a little skeptical. I did not know what to expect! Now my son has compleated two years at HSA and I can truly say that he is learning alot more than at his previous school. I can truly say that teachers are involved and truly care for the childs education. If anything they have very well communication system. They never hesitate to email or call a parent. Not only that but I also like that they take the time to make home visits to get to know the child and the parents. They have excellent scores! I was amazed that they score 100% in Social Studies. I wish I could have attended a school like HSA. Yes they push discipline and respect, which i think its great! Sports! is all they left out!

This school was rated Exemplary in TAKS results for 2008. There is no doubt that the quality of academics here far surpasses that of public schools. Everyone here is pretty much expected to get Commended Performance on tests because the academic level is above the regular curriculum. It is a small school and the higher the grade level, the more academic pride you see in students. This school has a great thing going and it has plans to reach for even higher standards. The kids themselves know they are truly being challenged and better yet; they are being prepared for college. They definitely need more support staff and a better library though. This place is a wonderful alternative for parents who truly care about their child's education and future. They are serious about teaching and learning here; if you want to play around, go somewhere else.

Do NOT enroll your kids here!! I am a student that went 2 times to this school. I dont like it one bit. If you want your child to be VERY and I mean VERY stressed out by all the projects and work and HOMEWORK!!! And thats just part of it!! I usually have 3 or 4 homeworks a day and I use to get strait A's in in my old school and now i have B's and C's!! And its not that I dont study trust me I do, but the teachars there give you VERY HARD TESTS!!! I am in middle school and I have 14 classes and if you have just one homework missing, you have to stay quite for lunch untill you turn it in!! And if your shirt isnt tucked in, they give you Saturday Detention and no excuses accepted!! And the staff, horrible!! Dontputyourkidshere!!!

My son has been a student at HSA in it's first year. I am impressed with all he has learned. It surpassed my expectations and he has learned more in 5 months than he did in 2 years at regular public schools. The involvement of the teachers is wonderful and the generosity of their time is unparalleled. I am glad I made the choice to enroll my son. I greatly recommend this school to anyone who wants more for their child and is dedicated to give their child time and dedication for their education. I say this because HSA does require parents to be very involved in their childs education which of course makes all the difference. I am especially impressed with Mr. Tunc who goes above and beyond the already full schedule that all HSA teachers have. Thank you to all at HSA

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.
