OH GOD HOW I HATE THIS SCHOOL. WHY ISNT THERE A NO STAR RATE? I TRIED MOVING SCHOOLS. I HATE AMS/


Posted October 22, 2011

alief and killough is all about academics but alief is better. i know so because every single year for the past few years, alief have won 1st place in academic plus which is a fun event for students who qualify to compete against other schools in different subject. Even though killough may have won 5-6 place this year the teachers are very strict on academics. - a student from olle middle school :D

Alief Middle School isn't the best middle school in the world, but the students and staff try extremely hard and put in a lot of effort to make it as close as possible. There are many students that don't care at all about their education, while there are others who are absolutely devoted. It's the choice of the students which group they choose to be with that effects the education they receive. The teachers are top notch, especially the Pre-Ap classes. They put in MORE than 110% of their effort to make all activities successful. The clubs in the school are very student-oriented and it allows us to speak our mind. Although the sports aren't top notch, we have a lot of school spirit. The extracurricular activities are taught by very warm-hearted people and aren't bad at all. Overall, Alief is the best middle school in the district.

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.
