I have 2 boys at this school and the programs are fantastic! The theatre arts department has really helped my 8th grade son break out of a shell. The communication the teachers have with the parents has been really wonderful too. I get daily emails about what was taught in class. So when I ask my new 6th grader what he learned in school, and he says "nothing really", I have something to discuss with him. I can keep track of the grades he is getting on each assignment too.

Great school! My daughter loved 6th grade! The teachers have high expectations and prepare the students well for district and state testing.

My daughter is in 8th grade at Chisholm and this year I have had nothing but problems. I have to beg the teachers to help my daughter. The language arts teacher quit during the first semester, she was followed by a long term sub and then a teacher who expects college level writing from the students. The history teacher was also out early on in the first semester so there was a long term sub in his place which I could never get to return a phone call, email or message. The teacher returned a week before the semester ended and when I contacted him he told me he felt my child was ok with her grade. I felt much different considering she was balling next to me because he was hateful and refused to help her. Sounds like I have a bad kid right? Wrong! Until this year she was a straight A student and plans to attend medical school however with this set of educators I'll be lucky to get her out of middle school. I am seriously considering moving her to another school next week to finish out the year. If you have the choice, don't put your child in this school!

This is the worst school I have ever seen. There are fights almost daily, and my 6th grader is afraid of a lot of these kids. They cuss, they're disrespectful, they fight. My girl went from straight As to having a 16 in one of her classes. A 16!!! Teacher communication was terrible in that class. We are pulling my kiddo out of this school mid term. That's how bad it is.

I think that even if there is some kids who chose that wrong path, there's also going to be to be the population of kids that chose to do the right thing and have integrity. Sure there's "that crowd" but there are those kind of crowds anywhere. We are halfway through the year and there has been about 3 fights which are just catfights but the teachers mean business when they say they want responsibility and no nonsense. Principal sormani is also great. The acedemic grades are pretty high too and overall this is one of the best public schools I have experienced and I have experience quite a few:)

This school sucks in every way possible. I don't have the anger or energy to write a better review, but I'll just say the administration does not take care of bullying, the teachers don't teach, the counselors don't help with serious problems at all, & neither do the principals. They kick kids out of school for no reason.

My nephew who is mildly autistic was given 20 days in alternative school for picking up a 2 inch ( key chain size) pocket knife. He has never been in trouble before. He was suspended for 3 days, but they didnt feel that was enough. They admitt to understanding his disability, but dont care. He is afraid of what will happen to him there. He will have to do his academic work correctly and keep his uniform shirt tucked in otherwise he will loose credit for the day. with his disabilitys, he may NEVER get out! He didnt even know he was doing anything wrong.

If your child isn't in the advanced placement program then they are thrown in with the "general population." We moved here a year ago and my daughter does not like it here. We orginally chose Round Rock because of a reputation for having good schools. Apparently there are only pockets of good schools. My daughter tells me that the kids here use drugs and engage in sexual activity before and after school. She says that some of the kids are extremely disrespectful to the teachers. If they are sent to the office they are returned within minutes with no consequences for their actions. I have not seen much in the way of parental involvement either. I would not recommend this school at all. :(

I have had 2 children who have gone here, and it has been an amazing experience, teachers and the principal are great at communicating and getting back to you with answers to your questions. Great school!

As a parent and strictly measuring their academic results and 'customer service' to parents, Chisholm Trail Middle School is very poor. In comparison to other comparable schools, Chisholm Trail Middle School also scores on the poor side.

Ok i am not a parent but from a kids point of view and going there in all it has been better since the last years. The principal that was removed and replaced by to awesome princaples have strengthened the schools and have made it a better and safer enviornment for others. I have been bullied in sixth grade but then soon i found out i was strongly supported by the teachers and staff to stop this. Over all i give it a 4 out of 5. There is still problems appearing here and there but like always it will go away

My children and i moved here from Georgia where schools are performing poorly in most areas. I have been impressed with the school generally. My greatest source of frustration has been the level of communication from teachers to parents. I am one of the few parents that believes if a teacher notices a drop-off in performance that they ought to offer that information to the parent before the child fails. Overall, the school has alot to offer, and most of the activities are very well planned and organized.

This is our third year at Chisholm Trail and we continue to be impressed. The staff is organized and great at communicating to parents what is happenig in class. The children are growing and learning both acedemically and emotionally. The WEB(Where Everyone Belongs) program is great for incoming 6th graders. I highly recomment this school.

The administration seems helpful and friendly to parents. The counselors are patient and kind. I wish they had a better program when it comes to new enrollment students. Maybe someone should stay with the new student at least a day or two until they are used to how things work. The building seems confusing and overwhelming to get around in, if you aren't familiar with it. I think they should start over and renumber the classrooms so they make sense.

Chisholm Trail is a great school. We are new to the area and my daughter fit right in. She made friends quickly and the teachers are wonderful. The school is very organized and the teachers are right on task with the parents. We couldn't have been luckier. Parent

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 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.
