I transferred my sons to Mesa Vista this year and I am very pleased with the support that they have received. I am treated by friendly people in the office which makes me feel welcomed there.

Mesa Vista has been a wonderful school for my son, especially because of PBS (Positive Behavior Supports). He has learned great responsibility and respect. He has also flourished in the Dual Language Program. He reads and writes beautiful Spanish. I recommend this school to all my family and friends. Way to go Leopards! You all are awesome!

We have seen the culture of the school change in the past few years. Administration truly cares about the students and teachers. We know that when we leave our children at school, they will be well cared for and will be provided good instruction.

Posted August 20, 2004

There have been four principals in four years which leaves parents bewildered as to why we can't get one who invests him/herself into our school community. What is it about Mesa Vista that sends them away? Our new principal (we have an interim) is due to arrive first week in September 2004. The administration was lax in effectively addressing a bully problem in 2003-2004, but the issue has now been corrected with the departure of the former principal along with a new school year. Their strength is in the literacy workshop programs, most students are 'high performing.' Fifth grade has three new teachers who are very positive and enthusiastic about doing great things for the children. Fine Arts has also proven to be fun and educational. I am optimistic about this school's future.

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.
