One of the greatest schools in Texas. My grand kids are excelling in all subjects, sports, swing band and regular band. I visits the school frequently. Every time I go there, I find the students, instructors and surroundings to be superb. What a great atmosphere to learn in and be proud of.

It seems like a lot must have changed from the older ratings on this site. My son has been at Baines for the last part of 6th grade and is now in 7th. We have had no problems at all and really like the school. He has excelled in band and his teachers are communicative and supportive. They have enough events at the school to keep us busy but not overwhelmed. He is in all GT classes but the homework has not been too heavy of a load. Only one complaint is that his teachers are not always quick to reply to emails I send them... some never reply. BUT on the good side, they do send out emails to keep parents informed about what is going on week by week and then if there are changes or concerns that come up.

My family have had a great experience while our boys were are Baines Middle School. The Sixth grade experience was a smooth transition because of the organization and great communication from teachers to parents on a weekly basis. I would not hesitate to recommend this school to anyone.

Despite being in a wonderful neighborhood, this school is a nightmare. They bus students in & brutal fights occur. It is no a healthy environment for learning. It is worth moving out of sienna to avoid this school.


Posted October 3, 2011

As of this writing, 10/3/11, I am happy with my 6th grader's progress both socially and academically. The communication via weekly bulletins from team leader is wonderful. I know every Friday what has and what will be going on each week. So far so good. I heard horror stories about what we should look forward to in Baines and was thinking i was going to have to have a back up plan (private school).

They flat out just don't care here. Good overshadowed by the bad. Cattle processing at its best. Top down failure. Proud of their mediocore status.

Hey I'm a student at this school and I really wish I weren't...the environment is loud, the students are rude, and fights occur on a weekly basis. The only good points are that the school is new. The teachers aren't all that great, and don't really teach you what you need to know (save for a few).


Posted August 13, 2011

Baines is a school filled with many teachers that don't care about our kids. It is a horrible learning environment and a school for underachievers. They teach our kids to be mediocre and are setting them up for a future filled with failure. This school needs new staff, morals, values and a serious rain check.

HORRIBLE school, HORRIBLE administrators, HORRIBLE neighborhood, HORRIBLE people in general. My Family moved because the area is just plain HORRIBLE!!! Don't walk away, run! Don't let them ruin your kids...

I think Baines is an excellent school. I agree with some of the reviews that it is overly crowded and there are some teachers who dont care. With that being said, you will find teachers in every school who dont care and it's all about the money. As a parent, get involved, communicate with the principal and if that does not work call the district. Ive had to make some phone calls to address concerns and trust me it makes a difference. No matter how much money you spend you will always have the teachers who dont care. Get involved make a difference in your childs education. There's not very many public schools that are worthy.. Baines is a good school!

I love this school! I moved to Sienna just for the great schools! The amenities in Sienna are a plus too but my main concern is for my child to get a quality education from teachers who truly go above and beyond, and those teachers are in Sienna schools!
—Submitted by a parent


Posted August 3, 2010

We were very disappointed in this school. We moved to Sienna in part because of the neighborhood schools, but this school is so huge that you lose the sense of community. There were conflicts between Sienna kids and kids bussed in from other areas, and violence was common. My son was randomly targeted, and although the administration responded amazingly fast to expel the kid, we were never comfortable again. We have moved him to a great private school which made all the difference. Too bad we have to spend all that money on something that should be provided in an area like Sienna Plantation. Our younger son will be going to Quail Valley GT Academy. We would never consider Baines again for our family.

I reaaly appreciate the band teacher my grandson has. He has really developed an interest and love of music and has found an outlet to be creative.


Posted February 23, 2010

I like are school it's great ! belive me when people say the teachers dont care your wronge its most of the kids relly i hear them say im not ganna do kind of thing.

Everyone talks about the teachers caring. The teachers at Baines do care. The question is do the parents care, or do the kids care? Parents and students also contribute to the school. Take responsibilty, and quit blaming teachers. It really gets old.

Band program is excellent!

I honestly believe that the principal is a bit aloof as far as being part of the school's climate is concerned. He seems very inaccessible. I say this as a concerned parent, because a great leader yields an even better school environment.

Posted June 23, 2009

This is a great school! We had one bad teacher in 3 years. She was the worst and shouldn't be teaching. Besides that, the staff and faculty are so involved and stay on top of the dress code, bullying, etc. I enjoy volunteering and I stay active as a parent. I have 2 middle schoolers there and it's been our pleasure to attend Baines. I've learned the concept of accepting diversity through my middle schoolers. :)

Baines is an awesome school.Yea, sure. We do have trouble makers,but the teachers care a lot about us.(Well, some of them.) and Lake O sucks! its ghetto. and im black.and im saying that because a lot of my friends from church go there. I rather be at Westbury Christian or Imani.I liked private school. =)

Posted March 28, 2009

I know that this school has some 'troublemakers', but what school doesn't? We have amazing sports, fine arts, and academic programs. If you look into a classroom, you will be greeted by a rainbow of (99.99%)friendly kids. Teachers do care about their students, but the students have to be willing to learn, or to make progress as a person, which I believe that every human (deep deep down) wants and needs to do.

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.

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.
