My daughter is leaving Reynolds a place she has been for six years. She in the special program there, and it breaks my heart she would have to face a HORRIBLE experience as to be bully or mistreated in any wrong way. A very concern PARENT


Posted February 14, 2012

My daughter is an 8th grader at Wells Middle School and my son is a 6th grader. We recently moved and due to zoning this is their first year at this school. Both my kids have come home if not every day, then every other day talked about a fight that occured at this school. It is a horrible school. My son has witnessed a student get bullied for their shoes! I can't wait until my lease is up in a few months to move and get them out of that school. They have never encountered such viloence and recklessness at a school before. At their last school they never talked about fights that went on. The administration has a huge, huge attitude problem! Just checking out my children for an appointment is irritating! I finally did something about it and spoke to the principal and during the meeting, outside the door, a group of students were waiting along the wall and were very loud. Just as we were discussing my children and their safety at the school, a student screamed Shut Up to another student! It was so loud that the principal made a face and stopped in the middle of his sentence. So just by that particular incident I can tell who is running that school!!

The administration is the worst I have ever seen. My daughter has been bullied since the beggining of school we have called, e-mailed and had a meeting with the assistand principal and nothing is being done about this girl. When my daughter got fed up with it and finally fought back, she was the one getting in trouble. This is the worst school she has ever been in. My daughter is an A B student and never got in trouble before and then this. Worst school ever. I can't wait to get her out of there.

I am proud to say that the school has done a 180 turn around! I pray that our test scores reflect the hard work that the students, teachers, and administration has done! I am proud to say I work here!

this school is amazing. the new principal Mr. Clark is an great thing for this school . last year the lady that was running it was crazy, she had no control over the school nor the teachers. though school has only been in for 2 weeks now you can definally tell the difference. everyday you will see one of the principals come into the class just to make sure everything is in order and even sometimes sthey come in to give encouragement to us the students. also, the atlectic department is excellent this year... we may just win this year.

I am glad there is a new Principal this year. There are also new teachers. Previous teachers were not a very good role model for the students. Like I asked the Principal how can my son learn how to act when the teachers are immature and are the first to show a bad example.

I am not pleased with this school. I have called and called, trying to talk with the principal and still have not been called back. My son is is afraid to go to school on a daily basis because he is being bullied and I don't see it being stopped. I will hopefully be able to put my son in a different school next year.

Wells Middle School has been a good school for my son. I feel it has been the same as any other school hes been in. He is in band and soccer and the teachers really try to help him learn. He will be going to a different school district next year and I only hope its as good as Spring.

I am very pleased with this school. My son was attending another school where so they called decipline did not helped him at all. I am talking about the teachers focusing more on what are you wearing, pulling up your pants wrong shirt and so on. Well these are things that to me don't matter The kid is going to school to learn not to be pin point on every little thing, I always wondered? if the teacher is so busy looking for your mistakes such what your wearing or so on when does she has time to teach? Never, that is why kids looses confidence because of this kinds of so call descipline. My son attends Wells and his making 90 and 100 and he is happy . At this school he says they actually take the time to explain a subject. Now that is a teacher that cares.

5 yrs ago this was a great school all around however in the last year and a half the quality of the teachers & communication from them has substantially diminished. The principles have lost control over the school as in school fighting happens on an almost daily basis. Everyday I worry about our two children that attend classes at Wells. We are looking to move to another district ASAP because the undisciplined kids are now running the school and the staff can only try to hang on day by day.

Wells Middle school is very good school. Although its a public school, the teachers are very responsive and helpful with the academics of the children. The block math scheduling has been very helpful to us this year.

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.
