Mexia Jr. High School has disappointed me and my family since the early 1980's when we had trouble with bullying and had to go to court to get a child removed from this school for bullying my daughter. The same for the early 1990's when my 2 younger children went there and after being bullied and staff not doing anything but embarrase my child for being bullied we pulled them out when Landmark Christian School was here. Now a few years later my grandson going to the same Jr. high and being bullied over and over and now we are fighting to get him out of that school because he has been hit,slapped across the face, pushed and finally he hit back before the holidays and got 3 days of suspension and 3 days ISS. Went back to school and on Monday the 14th of January a kid had verbal discussions with my grandson and on Tues. January 15th this kid pushed my grandson against the wall and he turned and hit this kid so now he has 3 day suspension and 3 day ISS just for defending himself. We have gone to teachers, principals and now superintendant with NO help at all. I will get lawyers, I will get FOX News involved in this. I don't trust schools that have to have police officers on campus!

You parents need to keep good records of what is going on. When these bullies do something very bad you then have good ammunition to bring charges on the school. There should be no tolerance for bully's.

This school is very sorry! They DO NOT help kids when they need it they just sit back and let them fall though the floor before helping.They let the popular kids and the teachers kids rule the place mean while the others are suffring though the day trying to be the best they can be.So if any one out there is looking for a school to send you kids to DON'T send them to Mexia Jr High school,Send them to Grosbeck or Wortham,were they can feel at home and be loved no matter what kind of student they may be.

I have had one child go through this school and one will be entering next year. We are hoping to move before another child has to suffer through this school. Ignorant, unqualified teachers and terrible students.

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.
