I do not recommend this school. If you can put your children into another school, I strongly suggest you do so. The staff and teachers are very rude and treat the kids as if they are in military school.

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.
