It is very clear Marshall ISD has not taught their students how to read, wrtie, or spell. Just read the reviews by students.

The teachers and staff are working very hard to make the junior high the best. The principal is working hard and spending long hours to help this school. The new paint is great, the laptops will help every 8th grader, and the teachers are highly qualified.

This is a good school. I am an 8th grader here. It is one of the best schools I've ever attended.

I went to Marshall Junior High School last year as a seventh grader. I am in eight grade and now go to Hallsville Junior High. In Marshall I felt unsafe, there were fights frequently. Marshall has excellent extra curricular activities, I specifically enjoyed their choir program and band. the level of parent involvement was good depending on who you were. but for the majority it was pretty pitiful. although I do miss my friends and some of my teachers I am glad to be gone.

I attended marshall junior high school last year and it is very good schooling to me. There were a couple of fights, lots of arguments, drama, and messy people but hey, you have that everywhere. But the principal is sweet and very good. He treats everyone the same and if you do something wrong you get disciplined and if you do something good you get rewarded. The parents were very good about seeing to there children and disciplinary and just being included in the schooling period. The teachers where all sweet and equal as well. I loved the school and i went there for both years and im going to miss it very much. The only thing i didnt like was uniforms but i dont have to wear them this year.

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.
