This school is one of the best schools in the state the principle is the nicest woman you could ever meet...my favorite are Mrs. Gilcrease and Mrs. Patterson...I love you and miss you guys.

I love this school because the teachers care for out students, and we have an excellent principle that cares for the student's future.

Posted October 28, 2004

This year is a new year, but in the two past years this school has been terrible. We now have a new Superintendent as well as both principals of the school so we will just have to wait and see. They focused more on discipline than on education. They were low performing two years in a row. The third year was the first year of TAKS and they got a break by not being held accountable for that first year of TAKS. Parental involvement in the school is really low. But we are hopeful because of the changes. I will change my point of view if I see evidence to support a better school later.

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.
