Roscoe Collegiate and Roscoe Elementary are a great place to raise children of all ages! The teachers are community members, and care so much for each student in their classrooms. Yes, it is true that classrooms are loud. That is only because the school uses great practices like cooperative learning, project based learning, and hands on learning to help the students acquire knowledge and understanding. You will not find many discipline problems at Roscoe, as teachers and administrators value a positive learning environment. Meaningless title, NO, each student is given the opportunity to achieve an associates degree. For some kids, this is all the college they will ever receive; for others, it is a great start. The opportunities that Roscoe gives its students are immense. Students and parents who take advantage of the opportunities will benefit greatly! Education in any school is what you make of it. You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink. It is the same with education. You can provide every opportunity, but unless students & parents fulfill their end of the bargain, it is useless. -Jo Ann Gonzales, former RISD Educator/Parent/Forever a Plowgirl

Dear Disgruntle Parent, Apparently, you and your child have a bad experience here, due to your review. And if you didnt have a child that attended here, then you should really buzz off. Roscoe has worked very hard to make its school a very successful experience. As far as our kids being loud and rowdy, well you know what I'd rather they do that, then bring guns and knives to class. That maybe what you are used to but not here. You evidently have issues with the school, so my suggestion is to pull your kid out and mive away or just shut up and support our school. As far as "College Graduate" being a meaningless title, it probably nore then you ever accompkished in your life.

Wow, you parents really need to get the ball rolling. The only review here is from a STUDENT? All right, well here's the down low. This school, is no better than any other school. Geometry and Physics don't have the best teacher, he's a great guy but he makes everything difficult to understand for the students. The other classes are mediocre, at best. They're not very good at controlling their kids, and they are an unruly bunch at that. It is LOUD. But, if you want a title, sure, go ahead and send your kid here. He won't know much more than a normal student, but at least he'll have a meaningless title. COLLEGE GRAD.

We are a collegiate high school, every student gets a laptop, every student is involved in AVID. 'Cooperative learning' is highly encouraged by all the teachers... and Mr. Alexander(:

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.
