This school is just average for me. I don't feel that the academics here in honors classes are challenging enough. There are very good teachers who care but there are also some that will belittle your children and act as though they are teenagers and not adults themselves. Overall, our experience has been ok. Hopefully Mr. Edwards (the new principal) will make the needed changes (teacher changes) and make this school go from good to awesome! I'm impressed with the counselors, the administrators, and some outstanding teachers such as Mr. McNealey, Ms. Miknavich, and Mrs. Sutton who put their students first. Great job!

I love the way the teachers go out of their way to work with the students to bring out their best and are willing to invest their time and energy to bring them to their full potential.

I never liked this school and only went there because I had to. I hated how the classes were so easy I could daydream all day and still pass.

Great School! Mr. Rose is hard, but good and his staff follow his lead. They got my ADD student through it and prepared for High School. I have one more year with them and my 2nd 8th Grader and I wouldn't feel as safe with him any where else!

I loved the staff at Crockett. The administration works hard to instill discipline in the school. There is much focus on learning. The music programs are the best among middle schools in the district. Orchestra sends the most musicians to all-city, all-region. Choir always earns sweepstakes.

My child has done very well at Crockett. The biggest problem is a lack of parental involvement. PTA membership is the lowest in the district. Most PTA members are teachers and administration. PTA envelopes are sent home in the packets on the first day of school. The principal is conservative, and doesn't encourage activities that act as popularity contests(like cheerleader tryouts). My child is involved in many activities and has been since 6th grade. Many of the teachers are very young and that can sometimes be a problem. The kids need teachers, not friends or enemies. I like the lunch schedule. The kids go to lunch with only their grade, so sixth graders are not in lunch the same time as 8th graders. These are middle school students. At this age, parents need to be more involved than ever for our children to succeed.

My child just finished 6th and he did very well. His teachers worked hard to motivate him and kept me up on his progress. He didn't know of extracurricular activities this year, but he's excited about playing sports next year. I spent time in lunch early in the year. The principal used a microphone but didn't seem to have much control. At the end of the year, my son told me about a food fight one day and quiet lunch with a video camera the rest of the year. Why wasn't control used at the beginning the year when the kids are getting used to a new school? It's strange the only times my kid got in trouble was during lunch or in the hallway. I'm ok with disruptive kids getting a ticket. We're looking forward to 7th grade.

From a learning standpoint, Crockett teachers are very good, do an awesome job and have nice attitudes. The new teachers take a lot of time to work with kids needing help and seem to understand special education situations very well. On the negative side, the lunchroom is chaos, shouting thru a bullhorn is nuts and lends to the out of control atmosphere. The policy of having the school officer hand out $300 tickets does nothing to improve behavior. The kids would be better served working at the school to earn priviledge points instead of the parents skimming from the family's food/clothes/necessities budget. It's like the officer and principal figure if they hit the parents wallet, the parents will hit the kid.

Academically, Crockett meets my child s needs, which makes excellent grades. Vice-principal, Hargrove, being fair and objective is a Crockett 'plus'. Selective memorization rather than learned knowledge for state testing is IISD standard. Crockett has administrative issues needing attention. Parking is inadequate. Student pick-up/drop-off is inadequate and bottlenecks. Lunchroom techniques for orderliness are horrific, constant reprimand and commands shouted via wireless microphones make it an unpleasant experience for visitors. Holding back ENTIRE (classes) of students from getting their meal for 2/3 of their lunch period, leaving only 1/3 of the lunch period for 1) getting their food 2) eating, and 3) putting away their trays; as punishment for misbehavior of a few. Crockett teachers need continuing education and counseled instruction on exercising objectivity and non-self-righteous attitudes. Crockett has an outdated appearance, lacks some traditional atmosphere: pep-rallies, spirit-buttons, ribbons, banners, cheerleader 'try-outs' instead of 'sign-ups'. Cheerleading programs need restructuring.

My daughter was in 7th grade. This was her first year at Crockett Middle School. Her lowest final grade was 81. Never in any school before has she done so well. Thank You to all of the Crockett Middle School staff. V/R A Single parent, Ray Lynch

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.

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.
