I was an advocate of private shools until my children attended the SBISD public school system. Spring Oaks Middles School is a pleasant gift to this community. Dr. Sablatura(principal) is amazing for the students and staff. They keep a keen eye on how each students' progress and are college oriented in motivating students form an early age. I am pleasantly surprised and love how the school maintains a strict grip on the students. Keeps everyone on their toes.

the school looks good, but is that what they all do? i now someone who go's their and she said they just want them to look good for the other schools. The teachers are will but they don't really give them any freedom.

The choir director is exceptional at SOMS. My daughter attends this school because of the high quality of the music program. Theater is another great addition. They have excellent plays.

I am a parent of SOMS and my son is a very sensitive person, but this school has help him to become more independent and more mature. His personality is changing to a responsible and a leader for the future of this country. He loves his school and he is very happy. As a parent I feel he is safe and learning to his highest abilities. I just wanted to thank all the teachers and staff to make SOMS one of the best school in springbranchisd. God bless all of you in SOMS. Keep up the good work. Sincerely, one of your parents.

SOMS has seen both good and bad years. Most recently, the focus on academic success has improved the campus overall. The love, pride, and committment from the staff has been noteworthy and is something in which they should be proud.

My son loves this school. With its diversity and committment to education, I'm happy we decided on this school for him. My son is a transfer student and I'm very happy our decision to transfer him was a successful one. The faculty and administrative team are remarkable. I wish there were greater parent involvement but with time, maybe that will increase.

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.
