fabulous school! the teachers are so nurturing. We especially love the theater program!! Our daughter just loves Mrs. Kogan. Wallace has so many opportunities for our kids, especially after school.

This school is amazing. Parents should let their child go here. All the teachers and staff make a great team. This school has been the best.

This school is great with teaching, but the office staff is terrible. We have had many problems with the band teachers, and the assistant principle multiple times. My son told me how the assistant principle would yell at the students just to scare them.

This is my daughters first year at Wallace. She is a member of the band. Mr Malik and Mr. Brown work hard to make sure that the students will be successful as a band member throughout middle school and into high school. Over all the staff at Wallace works hard to keep the students engaged and motivated.

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.
