Supports LD students: Disagree


- a
Unless students have a diagnosis, they are grouped with all the others. I have an Aspergers child who I have not sought a diagnosis for because he is high functioning, but still dislikes working in groups. However, the push for conformity in this school is high.

Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
Leadership at this school seems to enjoy micromanaging, from the three teachers I've talked to.


Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
Keller ISD isn't big on homework. Never has been.



- a
Teachers are too focused on unproven in-vogue teaching schemes such as grouping everybody up as a team to collaborate on the answer for 6X6. Administration doesn't seem to realize this push leaves independent-minded learners (e.g future leaders) behind. Teachers are the ones who best know how their students learn. Heavy-handed administrators should defer to them. I've spoken to three excellent teachers who are leaving this school next year.

We had 2 good teachers and 1 good coach. The rest have been awful. I do not think the children are challenged. Teachers are more interested in hitting passing quotas than teaching or communicating with parents. There is a lot of ugly that goes on in this school - fights, drugs, bullying, etc. and the administration does very little to prevent it or address it when it happens. I am so disappointed that we moved to this school district. We thought it was the best, now we are going to be paying for private school because of our experience with both SKI and ISMS.

Looking back at my 12 years of public school, grade 7 and 8 where by far the worst in every way. I wish i had gone to Keller middle



- a
For a public school, ISMS is above average. It would have earned more stars if it were a little more challenging. I have a straight A 8th grader and although she takes pre AP classes she has not had hardly any homework all year and only written one paper. I am worried she is not being challenged and will not be ready for Keller High School next year. The band program is wonderful, even the beginner band sounds fantastic! Most teachers are very responsive via email and are encouraging as well as accomodating where necessary. The counseling staff is really great!



- a
they have well certified teachers and coaches!!!




- a
isms is a very well rounded school and it gives the kids that attend there express themselves freely!!!!!!!
