After supporting the LOR for three years, it saddens me that as a mother. I received such little respect... When it comes to complex issues, the school does not have the expertise. The staff professional counselors need more experience with children that are apart of TDFPS. Further, they need to understand the different between the court removal of children and parents requesting protective services (Foster Care). LIVE OAK RIDGE FAILED, AND CONTINUES TO FAIL.....Do the really care? Or, are they just using our children as guinea pigs (Department Juvenile Justice), remember these studies destroy and punishes our good children. Please take a stand..... AFCMSVO/NAPSP

I'm a 7th grader in live oak the school does have their defects but we do have good teachers who love what they do and the coaches are amazing they keep us out if trouble and really care for us there is bullying and fights but what school doesn't have that I tended 6th grade too and I was a A honor roll with a very high average and now I'm a A'B honor roll I was a volleyball player and I'm a dancer the dance teachers are amazing and they love what they do so if your looking for a school please pick live oak and one of the best teachers for reading is mrs. McGee

This school has the ghettoest most uncontrollable children in the whole district! Shoemakers graph shows all the fights come from live oak kids! YEAH PA TURN UP !!! -2013 AB and ST From PALO ALTO MIDDLE SCHOOL


Posted October 26, 2013

This school is a set up for children to feel bad about themselves or having others think they can get away with bad behavior. Problem with that is, the real world is waiting for them out there and some of these children are in for a rude awakening. Other children are going to be scarred for life and middle school at Live Oak Ridge is going to be a nightmare for memories. In regards to the review posted yesterday-what good is it to have a safety plan if it's not activated. I'll tell you- it's not good and it serves no purpose then. The school needs to do all they can to protect your children, not aid in endangering them or sitting on their hands waiting for the worst to happen.

Well guns seem to be a problem twice in less than 3 months. Fights after school almost daily and a gang-like mentality resides well here, sadly. Destruction of property and bullies, runs rampant. Not pleased with this school at all or its Principal. Will be extremely glad when my child has graduated THIS out of control school.

I Am A Student At Live Oak Ridge. I Have Been There Since The Sixth Grade. It Is Wonderful I Have Never Had Too Take An ACC Course ! i Would Say That One Of The Best Teachers is In The 8th Grade History Department ! Out Principal Is The Greatest She Dont Tolerate Nothinqq.

As a former student of this school, I believe that the standards of the teachers and staff members are set to a reasonable level for the students. The Christian-like qualities show throught all the staff so they can set an example for the child you are rasing.

I am currently attending as a 8th grader and I have been attending at Live Oak since 6th grade. I got to say this school is one of the best in the KISD. Overall to me this school is like family. If you want to be a great athlete you must see Coach Cotton, Coach Chevere, Coach D, & Coach Cypher. Although this school is a little crowded it's still a good community.

My son has now attended this school in 6th and now he in 7th grade. I am overall happy with this school. My son is in TAG classes and he is being challenged. I do think that they do not have enough teachers and the classed are overcrowded. Last year was much better with this problem. But overall my son is doing good. He is an A student and a good Athlete. The sports are good Coach Cotton is a good coach he really cares about his athletes and keeps them out of trouble. I would recommed this school to other parents but you must be an involved parent. This always helps. I believe there are troubles at every school but its the choices the students make to stay in or out of touble.

The Staff, Counselors and the spirit of the school best suits me. I appreciate the friendliness and cooperation the staff provides. I am always able to talk to teachers, who seem to have time to hear me out on any concerns or issues I have.

I am a teacher here at Live Oak Ridge. I have to say that I absolutely love my students. I wish that parents were more involved and that there was a better discipline program. Overall, I think Live Oak is a decent school that has its kinks that need to be worked out.

Posted September 5, 2008

I am a student a Live Oak Ridge Middle School and I absolutely love being a LOBO. The teachers there are so nice and supportive. They don't yell at you unless your not doing what your supposes to be doing. They do there best to make the day fun they teach us in fun ways in a way that makes you actually want to get up and listen and not go to sleep and the best teachers of all time are Miss. Crisp, Mrs. Brownell, Mrs/Coach Jackson, Mrs. Benn, and Mrs. Z Anderson and also the principle there is amazing. She doesn't like to yell, but when she talks us students stop and listen. So Live Oak is really a great school and GO MIGHTY LOBOS!

this school is wonderful. the academic and extra curiculum** classes are great. I am going into the 8th grade. I have been here since 6th. It breaks my heart when I hear or see someone spreading bad things about this school. not everything you hear is true. although there are some students that like to cause trouble. They only do it becasue they like the attention. Live Oak shouldnt be labled as a bad school because most of the students do what they need to do and try their best at everything they do. so before you tell your student they cant attend this school you should know the facts.I know where ever I go I will also always be a lobo! ~Student

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.
