We transferred our two children from Bowman ( our feeder school) to SMS and the daily commute has been a huge sacrifice for our family, however, well worth our time. Cant express enough gratitude towards the teachers, especially the honors & PACE programs, and more importantly Principal Jason Myatt & his administrative staff. Everyone at SMS, including the PTA, takes pride in their work and its obvious that the students are top priority -- daily!

Personally i think that Schimelpfenig is an amazing school. The teachers are amazing and the administrators too. The teachers know what their teaching and know how to teach it. The school is very well disciplined and they know how to get something done when it is needed. The principals (all 3) are fantastic and very nice. They really care about the children and are just doing it for the money. I really recommend SMS.

Schim is ehhhh, English program is great, math is terrible, sports are up and down, Homework and discipline are sooooooooooooo sorry. And were supposed to pick between Plano adn West now. -.-

Schimelpfenig has been an good school for our kids. PACE program is excellent, challenging, and has incredible teachers. There is lots of homework, but both of my kids are working ahead of grade level and there is some opportunity to work on at school. This school is now a "split" school not due to parents, but because of the school district's attempt to balance enrollment and test scores. Parents I know are friendly and involved.

Thanks to the superiority attitudes of the parents, this is now a school to stay far far away from! Thanks to the parents, its now a split school - meaning kids go to 2 different high schools and senior high schools. I would look elsewhere in Plano - I suggest heading West.


Posted November 11, 2010

All of the middle schools in Plano ISD are excellent, however beware of the parent-culture at this school. Most of the parents have a really bizarre superiority attitude that you really don't find at other middle schools in the district.

Hey! I love Schimelpfenig Middle school. I have been here for about half an year and I really like it. The teachers are nice and experienced, they do not assign too much homework, and the school leaves time for the kids who wanna go pro in a sport!(like me)


Posted March 31, 2010

Now while there are good teachers at this school such as Kleiman, Dupre, etc. and a nice enough ISS superviosr and Dean, the discpiline system is very... iffy. As of 2010, you get these things called PRIDE slips which no one really cares about... and some teachers give dententions for bad reasons and you can get ISS for very vague things and inexpirenced teachers might for instince give you ISS for chewing gum when you get a detention or ISS and some subs they hire are jsut terrible. The homework is no big deal if you try, unless oyu have Kleiman. Good enough teachers- crappy discpiline system and some terrble staff members

it's a great school with an awesome band and an amazing PACE teacher [Ms. Kleiman] who nobody i know dislikes. yes, we have lots of homework, but if you work hard you can finish and get a good grade in every class. even PACE.

I have had 3 children go through Schimelpfenig Middle School. If a student is willing to work and parents are willing to do their jobs its a great school.

The school is OK and I don't have a problem how they teach it but the homework is too much. I get bombarded until 11:30 PM trying to finish one assingment but then the next day I get a bad grade because I didn't study for it. Some of the other teachers are really nice( Mrs. Mullen) but the other teachers are inexperinced or mean.
—Submitted by a student


Posted November 21, 2008

It is a nice school, and we have nice grades, but teachers may be a bit mean and many of them are inexperienced as we have a high turnover rate. The safety and discipline is right, since there are detentions alot and ISS students weekly. But over all i think its a great school but not better than rice, its good

I love own school! It rocks. I think Miss Lasiter and Ms. Pillman are the best

Whoa. Schimelpfenig is a pretty good school, I guess. I mean, some of the teachers are just way out of proportion. Some, it seems as if they don't even know what they are talking about. As far as homework and projects go, I am up until about 3 A.M. every day, and most of the time still don't get everything done. I would think twice about sending your child to this school.

I think schimepfenig is a great school. Some people may have problems with it, but in my opinion, it is fun and I'm learning alot. there are plenty extra curricular activities to do, they gave us a whole list! So everyone can find a group they fit in. And they celebrate many cultures with a multi-cultural club. This may not be the best school in the world, but I and satisfied with the things I'm learning. It is challenging and fun at the same time.

I have had numerous problems with this school. The teachers do not seem to even attempt to help their students and their teaching methods are ineffective. The dicipline level is much too strict and I have found many other parents who agree. The principal hardly does anything and it's very hard to contact her. I have had my child come home crying MANY times because of some ridiculous opunishment or rude remaark fro a techer. Or too much homework that can't possibly all be done in one night.

The school and the PTA are amazing. Everyone is hands-on. There are more than enough extracurricular activities for every child to find his/her niche. Yes, some of the teachers are younger, but they are fresh and full of enthusiasm. Coaches, teachers and staff are helpful and eager to assist any child

The school is ineffective in its methods, though there are a few teachers that actually attempt to challenge their students. An overall pitiful staff. ~kombator

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.
