This is the best middle school in the NE area in el Paso. My son recently graduated from here and I'm very thankful for my son's learning in this school. I thank for all teachers and counselors from Noland Richardson.

Best Middle School for the NE and North Hills Community! The school is very strict in the dress code and overall behavior of the students, they are also very much involved in the kids education. Highly recommend!!

I got to this school right now in 2014. It is the WORST school I have ever attended. It feels apathetic and pointless to be there. The administration is more concerned with dress code and discipline than education. The office staff is very unfriendly and unhelpful. Bullying is the WORST here. I never see a kid not get picked on. Things change every year and they are making ridiculous rules and efforts to keep students in check, I have a teacher saying I failed to turn in assignments when I had never heard about them and wasnt absent. Please do not send your child here. Please!

Amazing Nolan Ricardson taught me a lot I miss walking the halls at that school every single day. I have memories that will stick with me til the day I die. I was one of the best defensive players to ever play for Nolan and i still have records that have remained. The teachers are absolutely amazing and if you want your students to succeed i recommend Nolan Richardson.

BEST Middle School in El Paso!!!! My child attended her 6th grade year here, and it was a great year for her! Yes the school is strict with policy, however that is what makes it such a great place for the children! Of course not every aspect will be perfect, but rules and policy are a part of life. Get involved with the school and be a volunteer, it really does makes a big difference for the kids! My child enjoyed all her teacher's here and, the current Principal is all about helping the children succeed, setting goals, and making school fun! I would recommend this school above any other in El Paso hands down!

I am an 8th grader who is currently going to Nolan Richardson Middle School NRMS is WAY too concerned with their rules; they focusing on the rules more than the education. Stuff like how tight our pants are (being a female, they judge how tight our pants are by looking at our thighs) what color our undershirts are, if we rubberband our shirts (I had bought a shirt from the school,they said it was "the only size they had", so now when I wear this HUGE shirt I have to rubber band it so it doesn't look big, I am threated to be written up), what kind of jewlery we wear (I was wearing a neclace with a cross on it, being that I am a christian, and was told I had to take it off and put it away or it would be confiscated), but mainly their problem is the jackets. They make new rules whenever they want! We can't wear anything thats not school color, has a zipper, or a hood EVEN IF it has the NRMS logo on it! Even our sports teams got jackets, and with new rules, they can only wear it on game days! Even if we are holding them, we get them taken away! OH and hugging! They will write you up if you hug ANYONE. Same or difeerent gender, TRUST ME, I know! Don't send your kid here. PLEASE!!

This is how I see it, This school is concerned more about policy then education. Then to top it off, it has one of the WORST bullying problems I have EVER seen. I walk down a hall to my class and most of the time a kid is being picked on. Too much gossip and rumors. The only good thing is the teachers, If they ran the school, It would be better for the school and the students. The admin is all messed up. However, Not being to other schools i cannot recommend or not recommend this school. Just remember their strict on uniforms. They care more about that then everything. Oh lets not forget changing the dress code so we cant have jackets in the freezing classroom right when winter comes. Thanks

I almost sent my son to a charter school because I'd heard such bad things about this school. In the end, I registered him here & he had the best year he'd ever had. I have two kids there. Most of the teachers are wonderful and dedicated. The current principal & administration are easy to approach. As a parent, I feel welcome & included. Many of the teachers are easily reached via email. Perhaps in the past things weren't so great, but it's really turned around. I'm very happy with this school.

I have found that NRMS is one of the best schools in El Paso. If I ever have a problem with my child and his grade I have been able to email the teacher or have a conference and they have gone over and above to assist. The principal is very dedicated and strives to make things safe for the students. There is so much that goes on at middle schools and here at least they dont deny anything but try to make it a good experience for the kids. This is my sons second year and I love his 7th grade teachers all of whom want to make a diffference and provide that quality education I want him to get. I would hate to have him leave this school as I feel very confident in the faculty and staff .

This is the most horriblest school ever. This is my 2nd year and something each year changes. We have a stair well for each grade but if you accidently go down the wrong one, your written up. I'm currently taking 'TAKS math' and I'm learning nothing that I already know. Its useless. The teachers here judge you. You have 'Free dress' but really its 'Free dress + Limitions' One year, I had the 'inncorrect' pockets on my pants... You're only allowed to go to your locker 3 times, so if you forget something, you're screwed.. The teachers here dont care. And the thing about the office is true. They always give me dirty looks when/if im late and make rude remarks as im leaving. The teachers think they have a right to know you're personal buisnuess(?). You have no freedome really here. :/ I really hate this school.

I too agree that as a parent, I feel very uncomfortable at this school. The office staff can be very harsh and uncaring.

This school is over rated, because there is a lack of leadership, most teachers have a dislike towards students. As you enter the school you can feel that you are not welcome there as parent, they charge you to see you kid playing in the sports and they charge you a dollar in the registar if you need any information regarding your kids records. There are no incentives for students and no motivation. On the ISS they put the kids into boot camp and they get label once they have been in ISS.

I love my child going to the school. He is getting a great education.

School has a negative atmosphere as soon as you walk into the building.There is absolutely no principal leadership. Administration is more worried about the dress code than education. The school atmosphere is more penal than educational. The teachers seem to be apathetic and some believe that children can learn without the teacher teaching. There is no parent involvement because parents are not wanted or allowed in the building. They have great sports programs. My children attended a nearby elementary school, that is much more positive, too bad this school couldn't learn from the elementary.

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.
