I have 1 student that graduated from this school and another currently attending. I'm very pleased with the overall staff but have huge Kudos out to Mr. Lucio and Ms. Pinner, the two Band directors. I have not seen two more dedicated instructors who expect and instill discipline in the classroom and extracurricular activities.

I have had children attend this school the past four years. Aside from the first year, the past three years I have been very impressed with the administration at this school. They have been inviting, informative, helpful and approachable. Good leadership trickles down, and aside from a few I have been very pleased with the teachers my children have had thus far. Good instruction and communication. Discipline issues seem to be taken care of immediately. The athletics and band programs are excellent.

I've been going to this school for a year. Some of the teachers arent that great, but most of them are awesome. They have a great GT and Band programs.

I had a very important question to ask the school faculty about grades and homework when I called them during the afternoon. The woman who answered sounded impatient, unconcerned, and gave a breif one sentence answer before hanging up on me. I didn't even get to thank her or say goodbye (despite not really wanting to). And some teachers there say kids are the ones with no manners? Yeah, right. There are also teachers who do not respond to voice mails left after or DURING school, then don't show up the next two days, and some teachers who recycle work without giving it back to the students to confirm their grades on the paper. Oh, by the way, one teacher who replaced an 8th grade teacher who resigned due to poor behavior from the students in class, does not do much teaching. We spent a whole class period watching Youtube videos about people who got hit by cars, clips of NFL games, and others about people on Ellen. What does that have to do with history?! And the teachers STILL gave us assignments to perform! Though it was a little hard to work in those conditions. If you have a choice, don't send your kid to this school. I'm an 8th grader and can't wait to leave.

This is an excellent school. Very clean school and the teachers really do care. There is constant communication between the school and parents.

My daughter has received a lot of support and help from the faculty and teachers of Park Crest Middle School. I am glad that my daughter goes to this school.

This is my childs 1rst year attending this school and trust me I am not impressed! The teachers show no intrest in my sons questions or concerns it takes for me to call the assistant principal to get anything done which is very frustrating. Majority of there staff is just very rude & unprofessional. The over crowding definate problem kids are running over the teachers very displeasing! I can not wait until school year is over so I can take my child out of this school.

The school could do better in many areas. My daughter is starting her first year and already feels like the school is over crowded and provides little support. Lunch lines are lengthy and move too slow to a point where my daughter has only ten minutes to eat. A percentage of students are disrespectful to teachers, and have no desire to learn what so ever.

I have 2 at Park Crest. New principal came in Fall 2008. Great leadership. Teacher responsiveness far better than what I got at Brookhollow Elem. Excellent extra-curricular activities and teachers. Weekly emails from principal and updated web page helps parents know what is going on. Love TxConnect and teachers update that weekly or more often. Seems to me school is heading in the right direction of becoming great!

THis scholl has a pretty good teaching staff, and has a very good athletic program same for band. I loved this school.

Poor in almost every area. Administration is non responsive, doesn't enforce rules equally and teachers do not pay attention to district scope and sequence. Math and preap LA are horrible. Worksheets and low expectations dominate these areas. Overcrowding may be gone but apathy still dominates admin. and teachers. State testing proves mediocrity rules Park Crest. The school could be awesome if a new administration would be put in place or the current one worked at helping kids not just looking good. My child is very active in activities and those areas are top notch. We just have to do a great deal of teaching at home to make up for the mediocre classroom experiences...

I, being a former student here at Park Crest Middle school, think that the teachers are absolutely fantastic at what they do. All the teachers I've had experience with (which is a lot) have seemed to enjoy teaching. In the Pre-Ap program, students are pushed to do their very best to exceed at what they are being taught, and even in the regular classes the same goes on, just at the level of learning that matches the grade they are in instead of one grade above. Students who apply for the extracurricular activities, usually will get what they put as their top 2. Sometimes they don't, but more often than not, they do. In my experience at this school, I have found that quite a few parents like to be involved in the activities here, such as class parties. Remember, this is from my experiences at PCMS.

Three of my children have been enrolled in the school. Every year seems to be worse with overcrowding issues and many administrator/teacher concerns. While there are plenty of great people in this school, the bad far outweight the good.

My daughter is starting eighth grade and I know several families that are attending or have had children in the school. Although it is a slightly overcrowded school the teachers perform very well. Everyone has been very pleased. I am very glad my daughter is going there and I look forward to my son attending next year.

I have to say that ParkCrest Middle School is the best in the district. Not because I think that it's exceptional, but because compared to the other schools they are. The school is very good about challenging students and giving them many opportunities to learn new skills through a variety of extra-curricular activities and electives. My only complaints of the school is they tend to be a little too overbearing with guidelines and rules. It used to not be so bad, until a new apartment complex opened in it's zone which produced some children that didn't have the best outlook toward school. Minimal violence and rule breaking continued, resulting in a crack down on policies. While the administrators are doing their best at solving these problems, it's making it rather hard for other students.

We have had two children in this school. The teachers really respond and encourage parents to be involved. My husband and I both work outside of the home, which in many cases limit the availability of a parent to be involved with their child and school. With this school not true because of the wonderful use of email capabilities. Each teacher was just awesome at responding and helping me keep up with my child as well as keeping me informed as a parent. As for the Principal, Asst. Principal, & Counselor they were more than available and really were on top of issues/students in their school. The only disappointing experience I've had was with the office staff. Many times upon visiting the campus they were less than attentive and not real friendly. I have personally witnessed the teachers, principals, & counselors go above and beyond the call of duty!

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.

Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
