Small classes allow teachers to know every student and help individuals. Some students need motivation, but every effort is made to support the student by offering tutoring and involving parents. Extracurricular activities are being added. They now include basketball, FFA, AVID, science club, and drama. The administration is very supportive of the teachers and students.

This school is great, they helped me so much. They helped me pick outthe college and helped me get all the information I needed. This school has all kinds of good sports, they have everything I needed. Even though the school is small, it is better becasue you know everyone, it was so much easier walking down the hall and having everyone greet you. The staff is really good and do everything they can to help you. I love it so much, so I would have to say this school was the best school around had friendly students and teachers.

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.
