Our grandkids attend BLGray and they love the athletics department one of our kids is in 8th grade football and he loves his coaches and all he has learned in the two years he will have been there,our other grandson loves cross country and track last years coach was the best he would run right along with them leading by example this not so much but still ok both are in AP classes which challenges them, some of the teachers are great but you will always have one or two which nit pick and that will bring the moral of the child down one of our grandson had one last year but over all I have to say they are great and take a real interest in our children for that we Thank them.

My daughter is in all pre-ap classes and I feel she is being challenged. I love the band program and the band directors. She has come so far because of them. The athletics program is not as developed and professional as I'd hoped it would be.

Well right now I'm a student at bl gray and to me it's an okay school.... I really dislike that the teachers give you detentions just because your shirt is not tucked in I think it's stupid but there isn't anything I can do also I personally don't like that the kids there are really stuck up aswell that is pretty annoying they have pre-ap in 7th and ap in 8th.. Overall just make sure you and ur kid do some research before you decide to enroll I have an okay experience but I would rather go to a different school but, that's just me so good luck on your choice, best regards.

I agree on the dress code inforcement.. They are very up tight about that. I believe our children have alot more important issues that need to be addressed that are alot more important than dress code!!

The students are very well disciplined but, the teachers and especially principal care more about the dress code then the education. There was a principal change in 2005 and there are drastic changes since the year 2003 in their TAKS scores.

I give B L Gray a thumbs up. They have great teachers who care about their students achievements. I think the new program 'Family Access' is tops for Sharyland and I would like to thank you for providing a way of keeping us parents informed. I attended Open House last month and I was so pleased to have the opportunity to speak to my son's teachers and the positive and negatives issues of concern. ALL POSITIVE! B L Gray also has great coaches (Coach White) with positive values who provide encouragement and growth for our kids. The level of participation from the principal to the parents is incredible. I am ecstatic to be part of such a supportive community. We are looking forward to Sharyland High School and hope we won't be dissappointed. Rattlers all the Way!

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.
