The teachers at this school truly care about each student. The principal is engaged at every level of the school and is very accessible. The seven core values of the school (respect, responsibility, academic achievement, community, consistency and fairness) are instilled in every student and high expectations are the norm. Tutoring is available for students struggling in a particular subject and it has a very active PTA. Small school where they know your child by name.

You can't argue with success! My 6th child is in 8th grade-all of the others have gone through Monnig with all that they needed to be successful in high school. There is a common goal from the principal down to the PTA volunteers, with all working hard to make Monnig the best middle school in Fort Worth.

Our four children have gone to monnig and every principal has strived to make the school the best. The teachers care for the students and go above and beyond to help them be successful. Monnig has always had an active and committed PTA which adds to the overall experience there.

All 3 of my children have gone through Monnig and I feel that the transition from middle school to high school has always been problem free due to the high standards instilled in our children. The staff at Monnig Middle School are the best!

I am grateful for the teachers and the principals. The children not only learn from books but they are also being taught life lessons.

My daughter has been @ Monnig for 2 yrs now. We have really enjoyed being a part of Monnig! I wish she had been there for 6th grade. My youngest daughter will be going there this next school year! Even though we have to provide transportation it's worth it to us!

My son transferred from another Fort Worth Middle School this year, he asked why I didn't transfer him sooner. The teachers make learning fun and he enjoys going to school.

Dedicated teachers and parents that support the children. They have alot of programs that promote children helping each other and building self esteem which is very important for this age group.

I am very happy with Monnig. I have two children currently enrolled who are enjoying great success. The PTA is very strong as are the extra curricular programs. They offer so many electives- including guitar.

We have had three children go through Monnig, most recently our son who is an eighth grader this year. It is a very good public middle school and will prepare kids for high school quite well. Parent involvement/networking is outstanding feature.

Posted January 13, 2006

We just started at this school from out of state. I am appalled at their slow pace and the lack of interest on the part of many of the teachers. Band class (all grades) is only good for beginners with learning disabilities. One plus: The faculty and the students are friendly.

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.

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.
