My son will be graduating Stevens Magneton this year and through out the years he was there has not been any major problems. I have had no complaints about the food and even likes there is alternate food able for purchase.. Since he was in the Magnet all the kids know each and grow up really close. Teachers and counselers actually care about the kids futures, they aspire them to get involve and go beyond and achieve the best. This year there was a teacher that was not teaching this kids right and we as parents got involved with the principal and counselers and got a better teacher and are doing a whole lot better. As a parent we have to get involved with what are kids are doing and what they need help on, also get involved with teachers either conference or email. Over all the school is as good as you want it to be, by the way the sports are great and extra circular activities are also good. They have concerts, karate, band, symphony programs avaiable in the Magnet. Ask them about the after school programs also.

This school could definitely be better. It's not diverse at all and my daughter often felt 'left out' because she wasn't the ethnicity everyone else was. Through the year she's lost a total of 5.5 lb because she refuses to eat the cafetira food. I was recently told about this from her and have since given her Lunchables to take to school. This school is very disappointing. I got so many good reviews for this school when my daughter was still in elementary. She's antagonized daily about how she looks and ignorant students are quick to judge. The curriculum is good and the teachers are marvelous, but the school overall just isn't what I expected. I wish I had picked a more diverse school.

My son loves this school! He struggled at first with his grades, but with each report card the grades went up and he passed to the next grade. The teachers are very involved and care for these kids. I was really worried about the idea of 6th grade, but quickly learned everything was going to be ok. The food is great,and the kids have more than one option for lunch. The only down side was that you have to be an 8th or 9th grader to play in any type of sports. Summer school has a very tight budget, but these teachers give it there all!

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


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.
