PJHS is simply THE BEST!!! We moved to the area halfway through our child's 7th grade year and it has been the most positive move we have ever made because of the incredible staff. The entire staff is caring, LOVES teaching, enthusiastic about their students, professional and outstanding educators who go WAY ABOVE AND BEYOND. I can't say enough compliments to give this school my appreciation and kudos for being what a school should be. The principal and assistant principal know each family and are involved, approachable and intelligent leaders. What great role models this staff is for our community.

This school is excellent. My daughter is now a freshman and attended South for 7th & 8th grade. My son is there now. Great teachers! When my daughter was struggling in her classes, they went above and beyond to help her. The office staff is very friendly and the principal calls the students by name when she talks to them in the hallways. This really impressed me when I was at the school volunteering duirng the school day. I would highly recommend South to any parent worried about their child starting junior high.

South is great school i attened it both 7th and 8th grade. The teachers are awesome, the clubs are fun the sports teams have great coaches. The only down side is that we have a dress code that doesnt allow alot of freedom on students, we must wear belts, collared shirts, and shirts must be tucked in. Jacketshave to be solid colors, and we must wear dress pants or skirts. Over all though south rocks!

This is my childs first year in Pearland ISD and I give Pearland Junior High South the highest rating there is. I am so impressed with this school I'm mad at myself for not putting my child here a long time ago. The curriculum is top of the line, my child is really learning a lot. My child loves the school. The teachers are great and the staff as a whole goes beyond the call of duty to make sure the kids are safe. If you want your child to be educated properly, send them to Pearland South. The school is also new and very clean, I really feel at ease at Pearland South.

PJHS is a nice brand new facility. I have had some positive interaction with the faculty. I have had some concern with a lack of parental support in some areas and feel it is sometimes hard to get information regarding my childs progress. They do provide K12 internet access so you can see your child grades and attendence, however homework assignments are rarely posted. There are also issues with the postings being current and some programming issues.

The school is wonderful. It's clean, big, and beautiful. All parents and children will enjoy this school because it has the best football, basketball, and volleyball team. After school activities galore. Junior high east and west are nothing compared to this school. The students are very nice. It is the biggest school in the district. The food is amazing. This school has a ranking of 200 out of 10.

The staff has to be overworked with such high enrollment but they manage nicely. The children are fortunate to have so many extracirricular activites available. Unfortunately the district is misguided in its attempt to keep children safe and 'equal' by the standardized dress code. With its continous changes it simply has become a nuisance and very costly to the parents.

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.
