Friendswood Junior high is not a good school. The academics were EXTREMELY unsatisfactory. -Submitted by a Student


Posted January 21, 2012

FJH has a brand new state of the art facility. It is beautiful. This we are enjoying. My child has had mostly wonderful teachers in 6th and 7th grades. One or two have been bad. The ancillary staff are very nice. As far as the administration goes, I think about half of them need replacing. On the good side, the instruction is high level. On the bad side, a lot of the kids are very snobby and cliquish, and there is a lot of bullying. There is too much emphasis and money spent on sports, and no programs or associations for the gifted kids, while surrounding school districts all have dedicated gifted programs. If my child was academic and not into sports, I would not go here.

If the school is so great then why can't the students who are writing reviews spell!!! I have never seen so many misspellings! Friendswood is a dopey town full of dopey kids and parents!! Weird bunch of people and the school district uses the taxpayers money for non school related issues!!

FJH is a fantastic school! Academics, sports, fine arts--they have it all! When we moved to Houston from CA, we chose to live in Friendswood because of the school district. The high ratings and test scores combined with the small size looked promising. This school has not only met, but exceeded our expectations. Our son has always been an honor roll student, but needed a little extra support because of the disparity between CA and TX public education. The teachers and staff are both professional and accessible. They nurture the student as a whole person as well as academic achievement and personal responsibility. Our son is excited about going to high school next year and we are so thankful it will be in this award winning school district. We know he will be well prepared for college in four years.

The teachers and staff care about the students as a whole. That includes long term and short term education goals. When we needed to resolve various middle school motivation issues,the guidance counselors, vice principal and teachers all worked as a team with my child and myself to create a plan to improve my child's work habits. They want the children to succeed. They require the students to work way above state standards.

We moved from virginia to friendswood 3 years ago and both of my kids were honor role students.Upon entering the junior and elementary schools my kids were were deemed at least a year behind in all subjects.Three years later they are a and b students.The school is as good as any private school in the city.As in any school in the U.S. there are rich and poor students that have conflicts.This does go on the rest of our lives and kids just need to get used to it. As long as we are a capilistic society that's the way it goes.Kids just need to gut up and go for it.

My family is by no means affluent. The teachers have been wonderful about helping me with the challenges of single parenting and before/after school meetings, even holding conferences by phone when I could not get away from work to meet in person.

We have had a great experience at FJH all with the exception of the 8th grade science department. Apparently there has been a large turnover, and all of the 8th grade science teachers have been teaching there less than 2 years. I am actively involved in my child's education on a daily basis. This particular department does not know how to communicate with the parents. The other departments I have worked with have been awesome. Mr. Munoz is the Best! He goes above and beyond the role of teaching the students. They look up to him and respect him. As we all know, that is a very difficult thing to accomplish at their age.

Poor school to attend if you are not affluent. Favortism is shown to the wealthier students while those who are less fortunate tend to fall through the cracks.
—Submitted by a former student


Posted June 23, 2005

We had a good experience from 2001-2003 at Friendswood Jr. High. The rich history makes up for the age of the building. Ms. Loftin, my daughter's math teacher realised her abilities exceeded the class expectations and actually taught her separately until she could be placed in advanced classes. In my search for another quality school district (upon relocation), I've found out how unusual it was to have German offered as a language option in junior high!

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.
