I do not recommend this school. The teachers and staff are very rude to the children. After mentioning such in appropriate acts to the principal. She also seems to overlook it. I can happily say my children will not attend Ector jr high. This is the worst school ever built in Odessa Tx.

This is one of the best campuses I've ever had the privilege of being apart of! My son has dyslexia and has struggled with school since he started. The dyslexia program at Ector is top notch. My son now makes As and Bs and even enjoys going to school. Our experience at Ector has truly been a breath of fresh air.

Yes, Ector is a great school in many ways. Our campus strives to be the best that we can be in academics, sports, music, theatre, and dance, along with all if the other neat activities that we have to offer the students. The student's education and safety is our #1 priority. Ector is an awesome place to be; at least I think so, because I really enjoy teaching there.

I believe that Ector is the best middle school in Odessa. They offer a varity of extracurricular activities. They have AAP program with great teachers who go the extra mile to make sure your child will suceed. And now with the new added AVID program every willing child will have the opportunity to go to college. The sky is the limit.

Ector is one of the best schools here in the Odessa area. Before I started my daughter there 3 years ago I did some intense research on all the schools here and the academics taught here were by far the best in all areas. She is in AAP and has learned alot from the teachers there and I feel that anyone that is in that program will benefit greatly from the teachers there.

Ector has become a school of integrity. The teachers are truly concerned with each student's progress, and they work diligently to see that each child has the opportunity to succeed. My daughter's teachers set high but attainable goals. I have also never seen a comparable availability of extracurricular activities in a junior high school. Ector offers Mariachi, band, orchestra, theatre, Tae-Kwon-Do, gymnastics, and computer aided art just to name a few. I am proud that my daughter attends Ector. I wouldn't transfer her to another school for love nor money.

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.
