I love St. George and I have seen dramatic improvement in the depth and quality of instruction for the school began the transition to the becoming an IB world school. I would highly recommend this school to anyone that wants a great education. I love the office staff and the entire administration is very accessible.

I have been really impressed with the teachers and staff at this school. My kids have grown tremendously during their time here and I have had great experiences when dealing with everyone from the front office staff to the administration.

I really love the School at St. George Place. Both of my children have wonderful, open and supportive teachers. The environment is warm and diverse. Most importantly, my kids are happy to attend school every day, which to me is always the most important thing. Thankful for St. George!

My child no longer attends this school. There is horrible parent communication, inconsistency, and children are often blamed for what are really adult problems (such as lack of parent communication, lack of positive supports to manage student behavior and a high number of overwhelmed, inexperienced young teachers).

We are so fortunate to be zoned to S@SGP! It is a fantastic school; we transferred in after private school and are much happier here than at our previous school for which we paid $20K/year! The administration, staff, and teachers have a lot of pride in their school, and it shows in what the children learn every day. Can't wait for the new year!

Great school, excellent education. My children moved to St. George from Cy-fair and so far we have not been disappointed. As parents, we are very fortunate to have our kids attend such a wonderful school. I may not agree or like everything that goes on there but when it comes to education, St. George rocks!!!.

I love this school! I am so happy that I decided to send my children here instead of private school. My kids learned more than I expected and they both recently qualified for the GT program. I was pleased to see that this campus was ranked 53rd best in Houston by the Children at Risk survey that came out earlier in the year. I was blown away by the quality of work that was on display during the IB expo in the spring. I cannot wait for the upcoming school year so my children can begin to learn Mandarin. Love St. George.

The school at St. George is delightful. My son has been attending for 3 yrs. now and he loves it!! The teachers are great and have a sincere interest in the students. Hopefully the school will incorporate more physical activity in their program, but aside from that , we love it!!

St. George Place is the primary example of how we should be showing children what a fun and caring place to learn is. I have a son in 1st grade and he loves it, learns well, and has made lots of trusting friends. love it!!!

My son is starting his 3rd year at this school & we both love it! When he started PreK he was behind, developmentally & showed signs of autism. The teachers got together & really worked with him to understand his impiarments & delays. With thier help he has really improved. Before S@SGP we really struggled with schools! It is a true blessing to be able to take him to school every morning eager & with a smile on his face. I couldn't ask for more! I LOVE THIS PLACE!!! I just wish they had a middle & high school! And to the individual who posted the horendous review about the "unnecessary park" in front of the school... the death of the little boy truely shook the school and the community as a whole. The park is small, quaint, beautiful & a monument to an amazing child who left us too soon.

My son has attended this school for the past 3 years. Considering it is HISD, I think it is above average, but it does lack some of the language, and sports programs that I wish it had. I do agree that they do a lot of fundraising which might be better utilized, but I am thankful that the administrative staff has been approachable and considerate of any concerns I've had. Also, there are some teachers that are better than others, and clearly enjoy teaching students, but as with any school, that is not always the case. Overall, there are much worse places out there and I'm thankful that my son can get a good education without me having to pay for private school.

In response to the previous review, the 'unnecessary' garden mentioned is a memorial garden for a student who was killed in front of the school a few years ago. You should be ashamed of yourself for not knowing more about the community here before writing such an insensitive review. This school is for kind-hearted people who help their community out. Those who think it is 'horrible' clearly have never volunteered or contributed to the success of the school and would rather take shots than lift a finger to help out. Some parents have no idea how great they have it at this school--my children attended HISD schools and this one is by far above the others we have experienced. If you don't like the free education, then go spend the big $ at a private school!

This school is horrible plain and simple. I mean it looks nice but they do make you pay for everything so they can have some garden which they have managed to build on the side of the front entrance to the school, not necessary at all. That money could have gone to maybe funding some musical programs or art or even athletics which btw s@sgp doesn't have besides soccer which you have to pay for. Overall, what do you expect from HISD? Decent teachers, I think not. I mean it's an inner city school with inner city teachers and a principle who worries about what goes on outside of school more than what is taking place in her own school. I can hear the rants now, teachers work hard, teachers do this, well if you decided that you wanted to teach kids you should have been prepared for what it entails.

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.
