This school is new, this is the third year in operation is already an Exemplary School. Teachers are very qualified and go to training very often. The principal, Ms. Zalesnik is very interested on working with the kids and parents, as well, the only down that I see is that most of the parents are not interested on being part of the PTO that makes it very difficult for the other parents to be impressed by what is being done in School. I am very happy with this School and all the Staff, my daughter started 6th grade when school opens and it has been an unforgettable experience.

Null is a fairly new school (2nd yr.)and my daughter seems to love it here. The staff seems to be pretty standard, but I think they can step it up a notch. She has complained about the teachers not "teaching" but rather them just completing the work. They do ,however offer tutorials every day of the week after school except Fridays. I think we should give it a little more time before we down grade them.

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.
