I love Bush Middle School! Go Broncos! I couldn't have been blessed with a more incredible group of people to get to know. The staff and students are the greatest group of people I've ever had the pleasure to know. I am inspired on a daily basis by the students' creativity and passion for learning. They inspire me to be a better mother at home and a better role model out in the world. Bush Broncos Rock! "Each person must live their life as a model for others." -Rosa Parks-

The bad TEA rating was a goofy clerical error. The low score was not in an academic area...it was in dropouts and because someone failed to code the no-show students correctly. We LOVE this school and the teachers and administrators.

I specially love this school. There are many great teachers here. They understand you and try to teach you the best they can, even if they have to use some discipline to do that.

Barbara Bush is an excellent school for students who are very straight laced. If your child is outside that box, then this school will be a nightmare. It has the ability to be a 5 star school for all students, but with it's double standards when it comes to zero tolerance, your child will be set up for failure. When I speak of double standards I mean that the administration is very harsh in discipline for students who fall out line with their rigid rules, but when their faculties are caught and reported of doing the same things, they do not get the same intensity of harsh and unforgiving discipline. Again, judge your child before enrolling them. If your child is very quiet and mild mannered, then this is a wonderful school for them, but if your child is anything but that, please, save your child and yourself the stress.

Incredible school! Bush MS is one of the only middle school IB schools in the state. The teachers are fantastic and the rigor of my child's education is top notch! Bush is the only public, non-magnet IB school I have heard of. The principals are all outstanding and devoted to student achievement. Best school my child has ever been in!

Barbara Bush is an outstanding school! I left a local charter school (North Hills) to enroll my kids at Bush because of the challenging curriculum and quality of teaching. Bush is a very safe and wonderful learning environment for my child. I would highly recommend Bush MS to anyone who is in the area!

I really love this school! The principal is outstanding and really cares about the success of each student! The teachers are very high quality and communicate regularly with me. I am so glad I pulled my child out of a local charter school to attend Bush! It is a really great school!

This is an outstanding school! I cannot be more pleased with the communication between school and parents. I had my children enrolled in North Hills Charter School and pulled them to attend Bush MS because of its stellar reputation. I am so glad I did because the curriculum is more accelerated and it is a very safe and brand new school. The principal is outstanding and communicates very well with parents. I highly recommend this school!

This was my child's first year at this school and it has been okay so far. Not impressive but nothing really to complain about either. It was a good experience for us considering we came from Missouri, but I would enjoy more interaction with the teachers. I would let her continue to go to this school, but not because of anything specific being great about the school. It's a nice new school, and she made great friends and I like the neighborhood.

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.
