Overall I am very pleased with the education my children are receiving at Farley. I have 2 attending and we are about to add a third. We have one child with health problems and have had pretty good help from the administration. The teachers are good, but you will always have a few who don't like their job in a middle school. The administration allows changes if personality conflicts arise for students who apply themselves. As always good parental communication is a must

I let my children go to this school because my niece said it was amazing. However, this year has been anything but. My son is in 5th and daughter in 6th and the only thing I can say is this school has a big problem with bullying and the counselor in one of the many email communications said "I'm not sure how I can help" and then accused my daughter of lying (in an email) when it was a classic case of the counselor putting the bully in the same room with my daughter and expected my daughter to do what? You don't put the bully in the same room with the one being bullied, it's a classic case of fear of retaliation! My son says he tries to go down to talk to her and she doesn't ever appear to even listen or care and then ushers him out. So you can't trust the counselor because she's flat out lied from one email to the next and the principals took me going up there time and again before they finally did something about the bullying and made MY daughter switch classes and had the girls who were bullying sign a "stay away" order. It's sad that as scary and real as bullying is, that my daughter had to be threatened one too many times before they finally did something. DO NOT GO HERE!

Absolutley amazing school!! The band is FANTASTIC, the teachers are soooo kind and helpful, you would be a fool to send your kids any where else.

the most terrible school there is, my son with special needs who has autism and bipolar disorder. was charged with truancy and is being lied about just because they think they can. All this school cares about is their money and thats it. My son has been having doctors appointments and they will lie and take you to court, no matter what happens. Also they do not keep record of your attendance but they tell the court they do. They may have a system in play but it does not mean that they can or should I say have the right to terrorize my son and not even help him when he is being bullied constantly and then the school counselor is a trip she will lie and say things that are not true at all about my son. So this school should be shut down. Do not take your kids.

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.

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.
