I could not imagine a better school for my children to be attending. GMS was rebuilt a couple of years ago and currently provides children with a beautiful, state of the art facility to learn in. The tthe standards are set very high at this school which allows the children to reach their full potential and be adequately prepared for high school. The teachers are great with the kids and go out of their way to ensure that everyone is doing well and keeping up with the class. In addition to this, for students that are having a hard time they have several programs aimed at helping your student in the best way possible. I saw my daughter struggling and was doing my best at home to correct this, but before I even brought it up they were in contact with me to find the best possible solution. Couldn't ask for a better group of people to aid her in catching up to where she needs to be.

This is a wonderful school. The academic standards are set high, which requires the students to do their absolute best. The Honor Society is a great extracurricular program. The Arts department is also wonderful in bringing out the talents of the students. Discipline is also very effective. I highly recommend this campus to any parent or teacher.

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.
