All of my children have attended this school at one time or another since it opened. From the start, I identified the high standards teachers, administrators and staff have of the students and themselves. This school is quality!!!!! Private schools have nothing on Sun Ridge!!!

My Daughter has been attending this school for the last three years. The principal is great and the administrators and teachers really care. We have seen no violence or major incidents that you might see in other schools in larger cities like El Paso. They are serious about the security of the children and providing the right environment for them to learn. I give this school an A+ overall. Other kids bus in to attend this school.

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.
