I've been watching this school for some time and it is by far one of the best kept secrets in the district. In order for your child to be allowed to come to this school, they must score in the bottom 20% of TAKS or ITBS and yet, these kids often compete w/ Austin and Brandenburg in TAKS scores by their 8th grade years, often beating these two schools'scores on both. Discipline is not a problem.simply there are no discipline issues. Don't worry about standardized dress, there isn't any, just the basic school district dress code. Small student /faculty ratio is the key! Memorial can never receive more than an 'Acceptable' rating according to TEA b/c it is an'Alternative' school but don't let that scare you off. This school is top notch!
