Posted February 29, 2008

My children have both gone to Frost and have had wonderful experiences there. They both have done very well on the state assessments. The oldest is now at university and has had no problems with the trasition from high school to college (no remediation necessary!). As at all schools, parents need to be sure there children are taking classes that get them ready for college instead of letting them play their senior year.

i have gone there for 9 years and i have seen that this school is an excellent school that always strives to be the best.

All of my children have graduated from Frost. It is sad to say that over 50% of the students going to college can not pass the college entrance exams. Most of them have to take Remedial Math and Writing classes. I am so disappointed to find this out. Politics is more important in this school system than the educational needs of the students.

About the tests

The grade 11 exit Level TAKS is a high school graduation requirement. TAKS 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.

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.
