McKamy is a fabulous middle school! I have been an involved parent for 3 years and have had nothing but exceptional experiences with teachers, coaches and administration. Given that McKamy has one of the largest enrollments in the district, I believe that the administration does an incredible job of keeping the students on task AND allowing for individual growth. One only needs to look at the incredible list of elective courses, extra cirricular activities, and programs offered for the gifted and talented students to see that McKamy is among the best! The teachers my children have experienced have been exceptional and very caring! My child is receiving an excellent education and is extremely well prepared for the next level of education. The parents I know with children who have gone through McKamy on to FMHS say that McKamy students are always among FlowerMound HS's most prepared students!

This school fails to teach to talented and gifted children. Rather then address problems they choose to give children in school suspension. They do not care to engage these children in on level learning. They prefer to teach down to these children and tell parents that they 'cannot teach to their child because that would leave the other students in the class behind.' That is a qoute from one of my child's teachers. They offer nothing for a person who thinks outside the box. They want to blame the child for their shortcomings rather then recognize the fact that they are cheating this child of an education. I have realized that I am going to have to pay for private school in order for my child to be taught in the manner they deserve. The administrators just don't care.

Mckamy Middle School is a great school where students are suceeding every day. The teachers are nice and helpful to every student,parent, or other teacher.There are many extracurricular activities, including Athletics, which is sports, band, orchestra, theater arts, home economics,etc. The Leap program is amazing, as are the other AP classes. The teachers here know how to make their classes fun, but teach well also. The Principal here is very friendly and quite funny. McKamy is just a great school!

This is a very good middle school. The students are very nice. The teachers are very caring and provide a safe environment. academically, the AP program is a good alternative for students and parents who want more out of public education. The non AP classes are average.

This should be a great school. Class sizes are relatively low and students come from a good area. Principal's actions sometimes seem to go too far before a parent is included or involved. The school philosophy seems to be to make the children fit their model.

Excellent school that strives to provide the best education for ambitous students. Teachers are caring and want the best for the students futures. McKamy also offers a lot of activities for students to participate in. A top notch school for that top notch student.

Posted September 27, 2004

Unfortunately, the administration allows the teachers at large to take an entrepreneurial approach to grading and other in school standards. As a result, there is constant confusion over whose rules we are playing by at any given time. That makes being a parent of a McKamy student very frustrating. Secondarily, McKamy uses homework as a percentage of their overall grade which has in most cases, served to have a unjustified impact on a student's grade point average. The penalties for either not doing one's homework or turning it in late constitute arcane approaches targeted at reducing teacher accountability for a student s success. Two pat excuses for why someone is not doing well at McKamy that you will hear from the teachers are 1) Your student is doing their homework and 2) they do not ever come in for tutoring. I have never heard a teacher accept accountability for a student s failure.

McKamy is a very good middle school, headed by a tremendously dedicated principal and awesome teachers. There is a good sense of community and spirit. McKamy consistently delivers in the areas of academics and learning.

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.
