Horrible experience all year. The principle is uninvolved with the children. She believes there is a chain of command to follow when trying to reach her. The only time she emailed me back was when I attached the fwisd superintendent to my emails and then it was only to ask why he was included. Never once did she address the concerns over bullying with me. My child was hospitalized after going through a year of bullying. Even had children saying they had posted unauthorized videos on Utube of her while at school. I could not even set up an appt with the principle the first time I called till the following week due to TEA being in the building so of coarse we never did meet. I have nothing good to say about the leadership this school is under. My child WILL NOT attend another year here!

My child came late in the year from another state with a way different curriculum.Needless to say it was a difficult transition, which was only made worse by the lack of guidance for not only my child but also for me as a parent.The other students I was told over and again were always disrespectful of the teachers and other students and they have a long list of students recommended for retention hmmm wonder why. This school and Lowery Road Elementary have made me seriously consider home schooling.I mean if a child is so taken aback by language used by students toward each other and teachers and the lack of reaction by the adults in charge there is a problem.

This school could be more involved in what the students are learning. Teachers are fairly helpful with the students and understand when a student needs help, although there are a few teachers that has a lack of sensitivity. The principal is not that involved with the students, my child has gone there since the 6th grade and I have not even met or seen the principal.

In my opinion the school lacks alot of structure in both front office help, teachers and most difinitely the students but of course that comes from home, not all teachers at this school are bad Coach Blockley and Ms Johnson are great teachers i commend them for the things they do and the stuff they have to put up with

This school is utterly horrible. The student body and the teachers. The students have no respect for the adults, and the teachers are pretty much the same way. I had my child there for two weeks and it didn't work out. I hope the best for the new principal, and I hope that the children learn some discipline.

When was a sstudent there we did have a great principal. She was very caring and made some changes to help students do better and to get our parents more involved. There are many bad teachers and she tried to get them help; but did not get much support from administrations. I hope everyone will keep trying.

Although Handley Middle School needs alot of improvement in their student population, staff, and administration, it didn't used to be this way about 10 - 15 years ago. Alot has changed with the FWISD and with these changes came the lack of leadership from the administration over some schools. Unfortuantely, Handley, as well as other schools on the eastside, was one of them. I have made the choice to pursue other options outside of FWISD because the learning environment and safety of my child was compromised on several occasions while inside the school and there was not much that was done about it on the campus level. Nothing was done until I 'found out' about the incidents and requested that action be taken. I encourage parents to become involved if your child attends Handley Middle, or any school in FWISD. Good luck & prayer to the new Prin.

Handley Middle is a poorly run, overcrowded Middle school with alot of discipline problems. Choices for electives are very poor and their does not seem to be much in the way of rewarding students who do well and behave. There are some very good teachers, however there are some very poor teachers also. Some staff and hall monitors are very rude to students and the atmosphere is somewhat negative. The new superintendent of FWISD came to the school and made some changes. With a new administration there may be an improvement next year, however that remains to be seen. I am observing carefully and will remove my child from this school if things do not vastly improve next year.

This school has poor choices for before and after school programs. For the children who need it the most.Extra-curricular activities are out of reach for most of the children due to poor grades, along with the teachers not willing to go the extra mile to help those who are struggling with the schoolwork. The tutoring isn't up to par, due to the violence at this school. Children are scared along with the parents. This school needs a major overhaul-from teachers, counselor and to the vice principal. There are lots of parents that have no idea what's going on due to lack of information being sent home on a daily or weekly basis.(changing of principal or change of dress code)

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.
