I am a student in Glen Rose, but I have previously attended Granbury schools. I found the teachers to be polite, but it wasn't the BEST teaching I've had. I felt as I wasn't getting the knowledge I needed or wanted from this school.

i love this school my son always comes home with a positive attitude and make sure he does his home for loved and admired teachers. Plus Granbury always keeps my son well fed and fit from lunch and excersizing activites . Good job Granbury we love you.

I'd say it's a pretty good middle school for Granbury. The teachers can be a bit cranky(from the view of a 8th grader), but overall it's better than most schools. And I have to say the sports here are the best!

I guess the leadership has gone down since the last reviews. The staff in the office is great, the teachers do not seem to have any patience I moved my child quickly to another local school when I first started seeing problems. I think new coaches and a new principle would help out with some of our problems that we experienced.

I have a child that just finished at GMS and it was a wonderful experience. The staff is caring and loving toward each and every student. They focus not only on their education but also becoming a successful, trustworthy, valuable member of society. This is a school that builds good character and rewards its students with great incentives to want to achieve greatness not only for themselves but for their peers and their teachers. I was VERY impressed with the leadership of this school. The parent involvement was super with family nights. The music programs there are second to none with many state awards. The coaches promote team players and not just going for the win which we had the district champs. The drama dept. was fabulous. The cheerleaders won Top team two years in a row at camp and also boast members that are national champions. Good job GMS!

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.
