This school hilds some of the best memories i will ever have. Amazing teachers, most importantly. They were very good about getting us ready for highschool. They were good about connecting with students and some i feel like theyre my friends the way they try to help. The food is good (better than most) and the athletics system is very good!! The students are all so cool and every one gets along with everyone, and if someone acted out of line. They were handeld properly. I had trouble woth one student and now were great friends. Best school ever!!!!!

high level of caring among teachers and staff


Posted August 7, 2007

I really believe that the school is a very high standard school. the teachers consider their students education the most important thing ever. whenever a student may be failing any classes they seem to find even the slitess minute in their busy day to help the student. I thhink it's really awsome that they manage to do that

Great school. Very challenging but also very nurturing. Pre-Advanced Placement courses provide an opportunity for even the brightes child to think and learn. Much interaction between the teachers and the parents. Many opportunities for children to participate and be involved, as for parents.

I don't know who wrote the review about the teachers being 'verbally abusive' to the students, they obviously were writing a review for another school! West Jr. High is a wonderful school, the staff is wonderful and caring. The school does have an assortment of students, but that is what is great about the school.

Sending my child to this magnet school was a terrible mistake. My child loved the school only because friends are there, but many of the teachers are verbally abusive to the children . The AP classes are the only chance for a half way decent education. The principals and counselors are oblivious to parent concerns as well as student problems. There are a couple of excellent teachers that try their hardest to reach students of all ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds, but the unnecessary and unfair verbal abuse by a few and the apathy shown by the head principal taints the environment and educational opportunity of the entire school.

Richardson West Junior High school teachers are deeply committed and and do try very hard to reach all of their students regardless of race and/or ethnic background.

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.
