I am a retired teacher who now subs at Montwood Middle. Without a doubt, this is my favorite school. The administration and faculty is there to help students, parents, and subs. Everyone is on task and very friendly. This is truly an exemplary school.

Montwood Middle should be commended for the fine job that they do with the children. the staff are brilliant and the school itself is run like a tight ship , with little to no room for fighting or bullies due to the strict rules and regulations as well as school uniforms. The traffic and pick up of students is horrible but not as bad as the sister school Elfida P Chavez next door with whom Montwood is connected to through the large library.Overall out of public school choices in El Paso i put Montwood at the top. Cafeteria is one of the largest and cleanest facilities i have ever seen.

Montwood Middle School runs on its high expectations without them the school would be pure dissaster. The princepals care about the future of the students including myself. Every teacher plays a different role in our lives wether its good or bad they leave an unhealable scar in our hearts.

overall acceptable school way to much traffic in the morning as the high schoolers get picked up there earlier. Plenty of oppurtunities for all children to excell my daughter started out at the school failing every class by the end of the second semester in 7th grade was borderline honer-roll almost there.

The administration has done a great job at controlling bullies and fighting. The teachers are committed and are willing to speak to parents as often as needed. The Special Ed. teachers are wonderful and attentive. My kids love this school.

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


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.
