I went to this school for my 6th and 7th grade year, and it was TERRIBLE. Some of the teachers were very rude and uptight, but other teachers are very clingy. I HATED this school. I am a military child, so I've gone to lots of schools before. All the students had their own cliques. It is not a very helpful school for new or military students. The office clerks are VERY rude and non caring, but the vice principal Mr. Djebrane was very nice and helpful. The students are mainly 'nonmilitary.' I would not recommend attending this school.

Honestly, I've been at Ross since 6th grade and I wouldn't change it for the world. Yes, there are some bad kids but there are kids like that in many schools. The staff is in no way rude, and the teachers are wonderful, of course not everyone will think the same though. The newest principle is also very nice. Honestly, it is a great school, even though I know some may not agree. The school lunch system could improve though..


Posted November 21, 2013

I was very hesitant about sending my child to this school. Not only is the location not appealing but having my military child move from a school of all military kids, to a school where she would be mixed in with everyone else, was a little unnerving. However, she has adjusted well and is learning a variety of academic and social responsibilities. Also, through her extra-curricular activities, she is able to be more involved in her school. With any situation, you get out of it what you put into it. As parents, we attend all school functions and have been pleased with the welcoming atmosphere and genuine greetings that we get from the administration and teachers. This school is not perfect, as no school is, but we have thus far been pleased with our experiences here.

For all the parents that are coming from a military back round, and find this school with no discipline. Yes, I'm sorry to say our schools have no discipline. From the teacher to the superintendent - No Discipline. I am a 1981 Ross Rebel Pride Graduate where Pride, Discipline, was instilled into our brains by one Man, and no it was not the Principle Mr. Chisari although he was a decent and fair Principle. that one man was the greatest coach that ever lived Coach W. Hartley.

I was in this school in 1964, at the sixth grade level. I was not any good speaking or writing in english when I got there. I studied there for only one year. When I finished I was pretty good at both, and got trough school with good grades. So people do not blame the school for bad parenting. By the way I am not Mexican.


Posted August 23, 2010

Yes indeed, it is the Middle School assigned to the Military Children living in Ft. Bliss. We are not very happy either .. BUT ... it isn't as bad at all. You have to look at the good things first. Academically we have been surprisingly pleased. The 6th grade teachers were actually very good and our daughter learned well and mastered her TAKS tests also amazingly. Of course you can always do more, teachers and students and parent(s). We have made only good experiences with the school staff, no matter if administration, teachers, or office staff. What we didn't like is, that students, parents, and office staff, as well as teachers speak Spanish more than English. It should not be allowed for staff and students to speak any other language on campus but English. Many kids at the school have a bad attitude, no respect, and no disciplin. However, we managed.

I am shocked that this school has a rating of 5. This school is located right outside of Fort Bliss Military Installation. Military children in housing at this location are assigned here. As a military mom, I am appalled that our children are forced to attend schools that are not even qualifying. I transfered my children out of here (because they are a failing school) AND because discipline is non-existent. Schools need to get tougher regarding discipline and learning English. This school is a joke.

Ross is an amazing school. Diverse. Successful. The teachers give a darn and the administrators run a tight ship. Fantastic test scores for 2008! Some of the best math scores in the county of El Paso and they are above the state average.

My daughter has attended Ross this year. I have not been pleased at all. When I leave messages for teachers, I am rarely called back. The office staff is rude. The principal is great but, cannot be every where at all times. My daughter is in GT and the level of work is great. It is hard to learn if the environment is not right. She has been hit in her classroom by another student. The teacher keeps putting them in the same group to help them get along. Only in school would you force a victim to be around the aggressor (bully). I think we will be looking elsewhere for next year.

This is a great school.I attend to this school and I love it!The principal is nice and 'funny' and my teachers are smart,nice, and kind.I think there is a lot of extracurricular activities like science club and UIL math,spelling,writing and other things.Parents are also involved in some activities like the mother/daughter or father/son programs.It is safe because we have a police officer taking care of us.My principal, Mr. Tanner is really strict if something bad happens.Even though he is strict, I like this school and I would like to come to this school and have fun!

My son is attending the 8th grade class of Ross. I have found the level of communication at a very high level. All the teachers and Principal return phone calls and/or emails. Teachers have schedules to stay after school for tutoring in all subject and all grades. My sons grades have improved and his attitude concerning school. The teachers are dedicated and committed to the students.

I am very happy with this school, my son who is now in 8th grade is very happy with his teachers this year, he has said that his Pre-Algebra teacher teaches them step by step, his other teachers are also very good teachers. The principal is great, when a matter comes along that requires his attention, he tries very hard to resolve it. The only bad thing about this school is the traffic, they need to improve the situation when it comes to picking up the kids after school. My son and I will miss this school after he leaves this year to go to high school.

Great school! It struggled in the last five years with a five new principals, but jumped from 11th place to 4th place in the district in a one year period. Teachers and staff are very dedicated to the students and parents are very supportive. Great administration, too.

Very happy with this school. My daughter is an eighth grader this year and has had a very successful middle school experience so far. Teachers are very supportive and parents are welcomed at any time. I look forward to experiencing her last year of middle school with her.

I have a child that has attended 6th grade this year. I have been very pleased with the quality of education and the school in general from the teachers and administrators to the students themselves. My son has had a very pleasant year and has enjoyed himself. The environment of learning and quality of programs is good.

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.
