NSMS is a great school. It has very dedicated teachers educating students and using extra-curriculum activities to develop students inbuilt talents. The principal shows a high commitment to the students and teachers, and has an open door policy for all. It's refreshing to see him cheering for his students during meets, tournaments and school games, as well as attending choir or band performances. Despite the large number of students in this school, the principal, teachers and staff have made my daughter feel safe and at home. Thank you for mentoring, guiding, inspiring and carving a brighter future for our students.

Like most parents I think the focus is too much on the test, I spent a day at school with my son last year and was very impressed with the teachers and the behavior of most of the students. I am also very proud of the band

NSMS is a pretty good school. From a teacher's point of view, I don't like how the leadership focuses way too much on TAKS...but all schools do that. Our extracurriculars are great...especially band, choir, and LOTC. The yearbook staff has been state-recognized and has won several awards for their journalism. Discipline is handled well and the facility overall is good. The custodial staff works very hard. I'm happy there.

This school seems to be overly caught up in the TASK test instead of what the children are actually learning in class.

My son attends this school and I am not too sure about it yet. I attended north shore middle when i was a kid and it seems to have just got more crowded. I am a concerned parent who makes sure to check on my child often and all of the students there dress in the dress code but have their pants pulled down about half way down on their butt and are not told to pull them up. Another thing that bothers me is the TAKS test these kids have to take. How are they suppose to learn the basic stuff like we did when all they have time to teach is TAKS. come on people lets go back to the old school ways.

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.
