—Submitted by a student


Posted January 23, 2004

All-in-all, a great school, with a wide variety of opportunities for learning. This small town is lucky. This school has grown, from a small school with only regular curriculum into one with as many opportunities as a high school would have. The only complaint a parent could have is of the lack of a good math teacher. We teach our daughter most of her math at home, due to the teacher's lack of experience/teaching ability. Whatever she is teaching, it is not Math/Algebra. She is not even certified, and has never seen nor taught math before. Other than that, no complaints.

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.
