Really like this school! So glad I did my research and decided to live on the west side of town and have my children attend Hornedo. They are very military friendly and keep you informed of all the happenings. The new military liaison is very informative and plans activities for the military kids so they can get to know each other. The school also doesnt put up with any bull and I like that! If you are looking to move to El Paso the biggest mistake you could make is NOT having your children attend Hornedo Middle.

First I would like to say , PTA meetings at 9:30 on a weekday morning .It must be a joke but it is not .Administrators with no power .Why are we paying them a robot could do there job.We should pay good teacher and forget the puppets . This school treat there students with no respect at all.

I am a student at Hornadoe Middle school and i just absolutly love it! There are great teachers who care about the kids and more than 600 friends i can make. Since i am a new student the first day i was immediatly greated with 'Hi! My name is______. Whats yours?' I now have great friends but most importantly I'm getting a great education. Unlike my other school i went to.

2007-08 has been a huge challenge for this school. When the new Brown Middle School opened this year, the EPISD, in all it's wisdom, tried to solve a severe overcrowding problem at Franklin High School by taking all the 6th and 7th graders from Hornedo over to Brown then moving the 9th grade in with the 8th grade at Hornedo. After a lot of growing pains this school has somehow managed to continue fairly well. This is a temporary solution to an overcrowding problem that is present in all the westside schools. EPISD feels that these super-size schools are OK. I feel they are a disaster waiting to happen. Control becomes the issue, not education.

HMS is a very large middle school. My daughter is enrolled in the G/T Humanities, Sci-Tech, and Math programs. For the first time in 6 years she is being challenged. Would recommend any or all of these programs. Additionally she plays in the Orchestra. El Paso is fortunate to have an amazingly robust strings program for all levels of players. School very well run to accomodate 1800+ 6-8th graders. A bit overwhelming when they first start but the kids seem to settle in.

I attended this school and loved it. There was virtually no fighting or drug problems. They parent involvmentwas at an all time high and the extra school activities were excellent! The arts were greatly appreciated at Hornedo which lead to an outstanding band and orchestra. I would highly recommend this school to anyone looking for a good safe middle school.

Hornedo is an outstanding school with exceptional teachers, terrific coaches, but administration does not work well with students. The office is not student friendly. It is an extremely competitive school in everything band, orchestra ,sports and grades. Remember there are over 500 students per grade level. Athletics are superb at this school but tryouts consists of 100 to 150 students competing against each other to make the teams.

Great school! The teachers work extra hard for the students, and they create a safe, creative learning environment.

I have been very happy with the quality of education at Hornedo despite it's large size. The teachers are attentive and caring but the parents need to make the effort to contact them because they are so busy with many students.

My son just loves the tachers at Hornedo. He says none of his classes are boring and that the teachers are tough but 'cool'. We just bought a house and considered purchasing one out of the Hornedo district, but he absolutely doesn't want to move from this school.

As with all schools, the quality of education varies from teach to teacher. I think the overall program is good. My child is in the GT program and I have found it to be very good.

I would recommend this as an average school. I believe there is little teacher parent communication unless you are heavily involved in the school, don't expect any teacher contact reguarding you child's preformance (even if you request a weekly update)

This school has a wonderful Orchestra Program! If you want your student to excell in music and he/she can take constructive critism and learn because of it your child will do remarkable things. Academics are strong as well. Overall school is excellent!

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.
