I moved my kids to HEB area from Irving, TX for the better school ratings all the way around. Harrison Lane is a very upstanding school, and I would recommend this school to anyone looking to give their child a great experience in learning. Teachers and Faculty get an A+ from me.

My family and I moved here from Florida, I have my two kids in this school. I think it is the greatest school a parent can have there child enrolled in. The school has a lot of activities for the kids. My kids love the school and their teachers. I love the fact that the staff know the kids by there names including the principal which I think is great. The best part is the parent involvement. There is no safer place then a school with parent involvement.

Harrison Lane is a wonderful school. After three years here, most of the staff know me by name. My son's teacher this year was just the most wonderful lady, she helped him come into himself so much. The kids are usually disciplined and respectful, and always smiling. It is a wonderful, clean facility, and even has it's own massive garden, in which the science classes grow all sorts of things. Situated in a quiet residential neighborhood, I never worry about my son's safety on the playground or walking home.

Both my children attended Harrison Lane from Kindergarten through 4th and 5th grade. The teachers are wonderful. They all show a genuine interest in each childs success. It was so nice to enter the school and hear both teachers and principal recognize my children and address them by name. I have moved from the area and have learned a great appreciation for the PTA and interaction between parents and teachers in the school. I attended a PTA meeting for our new school and was heartbroken when I saw only 17 parents in attendance. I miss the teachers and staff at Harrison Lane.

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.

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.
