The staff at this school are very nice. They try to help you and your children in every way they can. They have a great special needs porgram and all the teachers love what they do.

The teachers at this school are not consistent in their daily agenda. I have found that St. George is academically behind then the other HISD schools. I do not recommend children who need specials needs go to this school. They do not have a program or the ability to help special needed children.

This is a happy school. When you walk in to the building the atmosphere is open and friendly. The staff truly cares about the students and they are always helpful. This school will be one of the top in Houston.

What I have noticed about this school, is that the faculty and staff are a bit rude. Moreover, my child's teacher is always yelling at her students.

Our school teaches bi-lingual and ESL. It certainly has modifications for English Language Learners. Most all of the teachers are ESL certified. And we need help with our PTO! Please step and give your input!

The school lacks secondary language, a fully equiped music program, school counselors or tutoring programs that an ordinary school provides, The school's afterschool program offers academic and sports for a monthly fee!

St. Geroge Place is a beautiful school. However,the cafeteria staff need manners, and the PTO participants are worried more about money than student related issues.

My daughter loves this school, and her teacher. She was very nervous about starting this year because it's a new school. After her day she was so excited! I was to of course because I wanted her to like her new environment. St. George's Place has a lot to offer our children in the edication, and extraciricular activities. The staff is very attentative to the parents and children. Wonderfull school I give them 6 stars.

This is a new year for my family and I at St. George Place, but I am very excited about this move. The staff is extremely busy as this is a new school, but they always seem to have time to help. I strongly believe this will be the best experience I have had in the HISD school district since relocating to Houston 6 years ago. Thank you all nad hats off!

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.
