Mt.Calm is awsome!!!!!! This school is friendly,welcoming and head strong. The teachers and all the staff are just warm and plesant to be around. My children will never go to another school. If for some reason they are not allowed to go to this school anymore they will be home schooled.

To have such small numbers of students for each class, teachers should be able to work more with the students and monitor their progress more efficiently. Mt. Calm ISD fails in this area terribly. One of my children had a learning disability, was unable to read, write or comprehend, but she was given straight A's. When the educators were asked how this was possible. I, or my child was punished on the next report card by failing each subject. When the educators were asked how they were going to help my child progress and learn. My child received all A's on the next report card.

My children and grandchildren have attented this school for many years. The teachers have been kind and compassionate. Because we are a small school, they understand the problems the children face in the homes and communities. Many parents are involved and participate in activities with the children. They work with the children individually to make sure they understand and excel in their subjects.

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.
