My daughter went from a private Catholic school to Nimitz and she absolutely loves it! Loves the students and her teachers and wakes up every morning with a smile on her face. I am very happy with the education she is receiving. They have one of the best cafeterias in Odessa and the teachers are great. My daughter loves it and I love seeing her happy

Best school ever!(: I love Nimitz and wouldn't change a thing. Its better school i think. Great teachers (sometimes). Very strict. Which is a good thing (sometimes). I have so much fun in band. I just wish we did more group activities in the Pre-AP classes.... Just sayin.(:

I think this school has knowledgable teachers, TAKS scores are higher than average on some sublects but the classes are too crowded, school administration overly concerned about students following every single rule and not enough on individual students actually learning. My son was having problems in Math and I couldn't get his math assignments from the teacher because she said she didn't assign homework from a math book. They didn't use a math book at all. How are parents going to stay aware of homework assignments and help their kids. I feel helpless. I think this school needs to work on teachers staying in communication with the parents on their childrens daily progress and not just on open house. They need to come up with computer online access for parents to check on their childrens assignments like many other schools have in this state.

School has been going 6 weeks. Although it's too early to tell, I have some red flags. My student is in the GT program. I don't see in any class where incorrect work is corrected. This is the only way I feel it should be done, or else it will be missed again. I think the history teacher is doing an outstanding job of teaching and reinforcing the lessons. The others seem to be frenetic. I think the band director is very dedicated and wonderful. The tennis coach seems to be good. There was a huge turnout of parents at open house.

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.
