Rancier Middle School is the best middle school I've ever been to. Their fine arts program is amazing. Also yes of course you have to take Spanish for 2 years but if you want you could take Spanish for 8th grade as we'll and have 1 credit for high school. They literally prepare you for high school. Just because other people say that it's bad and that they have a lot of fights and stuff but you obviously aren't hanging around the right people and aren't just minding your own business, you should just find out yourself.

My son is in sixth grade at Rancier, he broke his right arm during recess and the faculty cannot even rememeber his name and all ask want happened even the school nurse and assistant principle None say good morning or even how he is doing. as for the academics not very impressed, I don't feel the emphasis is in the education of students is more of going through the motions. I am sorry I have stuck all the teachers in this category and I am sure all the teachers are not that way. The attitude starts at the top and they should be re-evaluated and removed.

Rancier is a good and bad at the same time the teachers need to step up and the kids need to listen and stop slapboxing in the bathroom and start learning from 7th grader 12 thru 13

The Amount of bullying that goes on here is horrible. I transfered to Union Grove because of it. The teachers cannot control their classes. They dont pay any attention to the class. BTW i an a student

If you are looking for a place to live, make ABSOLUTELY sure that your child will never attend Rancier Middle School. Very, very dangerous school. The staff is complete denial about the amount of bullying taking place and it goes relatively unpunished.

If you want your child to be exposed to bullying and an unconcerned faculty, this is the school to enroll them in. The negative envoirnment and over crowding is a perfect for your child to digress in their learning as well as a great way to distroy their self esteem and self worth. I would strongly recommend a different school if you care about your child's education and safety!

this is a reat school in my opinion because the teachers work really hard to teach us but sometimes it gets hard for the kids that want to learn because of the kids that dont. The athletic department is also great, we have awesome couches exspecially couch jasmine.I disagree with anyone that thinks that this is a bad school this school is AWESOME! ROOS GET IT CRUNK . Also u can tell that our couches work hard cause we are the district champs in b-ball.

The teachers can't control their classrooms. All you have to do is stand outside one of the rooms and watch or listen. I don't know if they're afraid of the kids or the parents, but if you've raised a respectful child, he will not flourish in the environment that is Rancier Middle School.

This is the best school ever!!- All the other schools may have fancy equipment and expensive stuff- but we have something all the other schools don't have...love!!!

My child attends this school and she loved it and also said that the coach's and teacher work to get every child to be hardworking and never give up

Rancier was overall a good school. Sometimes there would be some conflict but the school was always under control. The uniforms kind of help when it comes to everyone looking the same but I don't know how much it changed everyones attitudes towards each other. The teachers didn't have much tolerance and sometimes forgot that we were just kids turning into teenagers but the discipline was sometimes reasonable. Most of the time it was.

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.
