Hi my name is Christian hernandez and I don't like this school because since I'm Hispanic lots of the white kids start bullying me and yes I'm going to Spring woods


Posted January 3, 2010

My daughter and I are very happy with this school. This was her first year and she feels very comfortable. The staff and volunteers do not tolerate bad behavior. The school is pretty strict. Bad kids get sifted out real quick. I was pleased with this fact. We are an average income family with high educational standards. Great School!

This school has no original ideas and no after school activities (except for a couple of sports). Most of the children that go there are snotty, rude, and full of them selves. The academics are mid level and the teaching methods there are no good. It is over all a very bad and not nurturing school.

Spring Branch Middle School is a wonderful learning environment. Yes, the cliques are a problem, but within those cliques are amazing kids. The range of electives offers as much as the school can afford, and I'm okay with my children having a choice of athletics, band, drama, public speaking, health, german, panish, latin, french, orchestra, yearbook ect. Those are enough to make any year grand. I'll leave you with an ending thought, shouldn't our children have a wonderful school experience? I think yes, and thats why I chose to enroll my daughter at Spring Branch Middle School.

This school is very poor as far as elective courses go. Sixth graders are limited to choosing either Art, Choir, Band, or Orchestra for an elective. Seventh and eighth graders are given more choices, but some of those courses should be extended to sixth grade students. Sixth graders cannot participate in athletics. It's a very rediculous system.

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.
