The school is poorly managed. The school refuses to take action to get a handle on discipline allowing the teachers to teach. Studesnts curse at will disrupt class to the point that teachers are not allowed to teach but when the disruptive student is removed many times they are back the same period if not the next day. The students disrespect teachers everyday. Teachers are cursed at. As far as parent support there is not much. The place has a lot of problems and until there is drastic action taken the test scores will reflect it as well as turnover and morale.

the middle school students ARE issued books and they CAN bring their books home.

Academic programs are limited by terrible discipline problems. Sports programs available are limited but the basics of volleyball, football, basketball, and track. The music program is basic with the teacher splitting time with the high school. Art program is very limited with supplies not available. Overall, school needs drastic changes to be a quality institution.

The middle school students need alot of supervision- also for some reason ($$?) the students aren't issued books- they can never bring them home and homework seems nonexistant.

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.
