Posted September 26, 2013

I moved to Lake Jackson in the early 70s and went to LJIS. On my first day, I was told you had to say "Yes ma'am and No sir," and girls could ONLY wear pants on a COLD day when the school board approved it, but NO JEANS ( I noticed boys could wear jeans anytime.) Also, if a student acted up, he/she got paddled. Then, I had a really MEAN gym teacher who yelled at me everyday and embarrassed the ****out of me. I thought the electives were crummy, the kids were cliquish, and the teachers were weird. I felt the whole school had a 1950's feel about it (kind of like 20 years behind the times) and a good name for the school would have been the STEPFORD SCHOOL, because all the students looked, talked, and acted like little southern dress-coded robots. All in all, Bad Experiences, Bad memories.

The older reviews on this site are outdated and inaccurate. The current staff and leadership at LJI are awesome. Our child loves this school.

My child attended this school this year, and I must say it was an awful experience for all of us. The principle of the school is very rude and is constantly yelling at the students is also very arrogant. Some teachers are okay others don't seem to care about the students education. parent

As a soon to be former student of this school I decided I'd tell you what my school is like from a teen's point of veiw. The dress code is strict, but mostly uninforced. This school is also focused on academics and teamwork,rather than athletics. However, our girl teams are awesome despite a lack of effort on the school's part. Example of carlessness: I was late multiple occasions to school{i carpool}and I would just waltz past the ladies at the attendence desk& never be counted tardy thanx to my understaning teacher. On the other hand,there is a lot of parent involement, sometimes to complain other times to just help out or to just be kept involved. So all in all its a pretty decent& brand new school as of '06.

I took my son out of this school. The administrative personnel are arrogant, untruthful, and uncommunicative. The teachers are nice, but it's hard to get them to communicate regularly outside of the normal channels.

The ladies that you must see to get your child out of school early lack people skills. My daughter is an 8th grader this year and was told by another teacher that for them to stay out of trouble in one of her other classes they should not use the work God or say things like God Bless you or just plain old Bless you because she would write you up in a heartbeat. That to me is ridiculous. Our children have freedom of speech and they should be able to use God's name (in the correct way) if they want to.

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.
