This is a great school that really prepares students for high school. There is a lot of school spirit stemming from sports activities and not to mention a strong competitive edge for academic excellence. There are clear disciplinary rules to follow which allows the students to never doubt they are safe while on campus. There are also great opportunities for advancement into higher levels of Math and Science courses if the student demonstrates the ability. I attended this school for all three years and am now in college. I strongly recommend that your child attend Clifton.

This is a very acceptable school for all of those middle school students who would really like to further a great and acceptable career! My brother is an honor student and I am very proud of him for all the hard work he has put into his school work this year. As a former student Clifton M.S really did prepare me for all the simple and also complicating classes that I will have in my further years of school. Thank you Clifton Middle School for preparing me!

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.
