My children transferred to this school from another school in district. They love it! The teachers seem to really care. They have high expectations but offer tutorials more often to help the students achieve the high standards. I have received prompt responses when I have emailed teachers. The girls say the presence of teachers in the hallways during passing periods make them feel safe. My sixth grader has been contained mostly on one hallway and I like that he has a little time to transition before dealing with the big kids. I have not had any interactions with the administration other than them being friendly at open house functions. I read the previous post. Since I have twin daughters in the 8th grade with different teachers, I know for a fact that there are at least two math teachers. The school does not distribute textbooks to individual students but parents have the option to go to the school to check out a set. The information was in several syllabuses given at the beginning of the school year. Overall, I am extremely pleased with the teachers and high expectations of the school.

This school has major problems. First, how can a school in an obviously wealthy area such as Saginaw not afford BOOKS? Football team equipment looks new, though ... Second, this school does not believe in homework. My child has not had to bring homework home for three years. This teaches the students that there is no extra effort required. If it can't be learned in the school day, "oh well." There is only one 8th grade math teacher? Unbelievable. This school needs to teach its students how to properly take notes and how to actually study to learn (and not for the "no child left behind" tests courtesy of Mr. Bush. Hey administrators, let's petition the federal government to get out of NCLB like some other states so that you can return to educating our children instead of teaching them tricks to do better on a standardized test. I have never been so ashamed of a school in this district, and I've lived here all my life. I am VERY disappointed and am no longer telling people that EMISD is a good district.

My daughter attended this school in 2010-2011 after attending another middle school in the district where she was bullied. This school was more diverse and accepting of her. She performed better in the classroom and in athletics. The teachers were more open to communication via email and sufficient tutoring opportunities.

Prairie Vista Is A Fine School. It Has Fine Teachers And The Improvements This Year Has Been Spectacular. There Are Still Some Issues Regarding Bullying Issues But All In All It Is Good. We Have A New Officer Who Motivates The Kids. We Have Had Rarely Any Fights This Year.

Prairie Vista Middle School is not in any possible way to be called a school. My child has been interrogated by the assistant principles countless of times for no reason at all. The teachers and other employees working at Prairie Vista have no respect, no manors or any self- obediance what so ever. There are many bullies at Prairie Vista as like all schools but as my child tells me that hes seen someone getting 'pounded on' at school he had went to go to an adult there at the school but they had not done anything at all about it. How pathetic is a school to be like this. I'm never putting my children in this school ever again.

This Middle School is very well run. Both the principle and the teachers are commited to giving the students an education as well as preping them for college and helping them explore new talents of their own. My child went to Highland last year and was among several students tormented on the bus by bullies. She was coming home with scratches and bruises and they were ripping up her homework. The principle's response to us and another family we know of was for us to fins another way of getting our children to and from school. Both these students now go to Prairie Vista. Prairie Vista has school pride, organization and age appropriate expectations. I can not say enough about how excellent this principle and faculty are.

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.
