I went to Aragon for 7 and 8th grade year. Best school ever! Teachers are always there to help you. If you had a chance to go to Aragon, then go for it because you won't regret it. I love Aragon and I will miss it a lot. That school teached me how to be more confident. If I can go back to be an 8th grade I would totally go back!

Bullying is extremely high. My teen was bullied in front of her teacher but she never reported it. I'm so disappointed.

Superior school in every way. Staff that cares about what is best for students. Warm loving environment, while striving and achieving top notch education goals. Tops in parental involvement.

I used to go to aragon and it was an awesome experience that's unforgettable-Something you WOULDN'T say about jr high. I'd go there again if I had the chance but I'm in HS now :(

We have just moved to this community and I have to agree that Aragon is by far the best school I have ever attended. I'm in 6th grade and I believe that the teachers are good listeners, approvable learners, and the staff respond readily to emails and school concerns. I barely find myself dozing off to any of the teachers' lessons (they make learning very fun and intriuging) and the students are incredibly generous, chipper, and friendly. I am extremely glad that we moved to Aragon. Can't wait for next year!!

We are just finishing up with 3 years at Aragon and we have been very happy with the school. They have addressed our concerns in a timely fashion. Our daughter has been challenged in most of her classes and has risen to meet that expectation. The parental involvement is supported at all levels and clearly the Aragon team of staff do a good job.

I am going to aragon its a pretty good school I'm in 7th right now I like the teachers but some of them don't know what their doing and theirs lots of fights and conflict but they have fun electives(clubs) I learned alot during this year can't wait for this one! :D

With my older son, last year, I would've rated this school poorly. In fact, we removed him from Aragon due to the school's lack of assistance in stopping the bullying my son rc'd. It was with reluctance that I enrolled my younger son there this past year. He has autism and needed the special ed services. I have to say this school has worked very hard in meeting my child's needs. He has excellent special ed teachers (the best). He has come along way and I think it's because of the special ed staff @ Aragon.

It is a pretty good school but can do with some re-vamping in certain areas. My child goes to Aragon and is in 7th Grade after skipping the 5th Grade. He has all accelerated classes. He is 11 years old. I find that he is not challenged enough and he gets little or no homework 95 percent of the time. He needs to be challenged more for he gets bored too quickly.

School is ok. Teachers are good. Counselors are good, Principal is capricious w/discipline and not fair. Hides behind district policy
—Submitted by a parent


Posted October 25, 2007

Aragon has some great staff who work very hard to help the children. There is, unfortunately excessive student conflict and bullying. I believe that the administrators truly care about the children, but the problem is pervasive. Test scores for the school are also slipping.

I have two children that have been to Aragon....they both had a great experience with this school

My daughter is an eight grader at Aragon, and she really likes it. The funding is very short, and the school district puts limits on everything (fundraisers, out-of-school trips) so its practically impossible for them to do anything, but she is getting a good education. Sometime she's stressed because the district tries to jam so much curriculum into the year, but she's in gifted and talented so it's not too hard for her. Overall, i agree that the school is good, although there are many fights and conflicts between studets, and we have witnessed some very disrespectfult things. Most parents aren't involved, the staff runs the school.

My son is a 7th grader at Aragon Middle School, and the progress he has made since he started this school is largely dependent on the dedication to the students that his teachers and counselors demonstrate every day. I know that he will benefit from the learning and experiences in this school. In working with the teachers and administrative staff, I have always been able to give my inputs to the school. This has increased my son's ability to have an individual program with caring teachers and mentors that motivate and assist him in becoming a mature and well-mannered young man.

I love this school. The teachers obviously care for their students and want them to be successful. The administration is understanding and projects an attitude of cooperation when working with parents.

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.
