Mrs. Charles-Sanchez is the best thing to happen to Jordan. I love her above and beyond approach to teaching as well as making parents become involved as an equal partner in their child's education. I was thinking about private school, but thanks to Mrs. Charles-Sanchez, my child will stay at Jordan. Thanks!

oh this school is so awsome im an 8th grader this year and i wish i could stay alot longer if you want your child to go to a school with a lively atmosphere this is the school the teachers will easily break down problems for students and make sure they will know what they are doing. sports are really fun thell take it seriously but also make sure youll have a great time dances and electives are another way to let your child have fun and another way to meet new friends i can honestly say if you enroll your student in the middle of the school year he or she will have at least 30 friends the 1st day they are there well i guess i made my point by saying i love being a jordan jaguar:)!! -arianna-

Fantastic teaching staff and excellent Administration. The campus recently had cameras installed which has cut down on fights, thefts, bullying and other types of activities. The campus officer is approachable, polite and genuinely cares about the students (in my child's case as well as others I have first hand knowledge about). I was apprehensive at first due to things I had heard prior to my child attending but I believe the campus had some major staff changes which resulted in my rating the way I did. Great campus!

We were very unhappy with Jordan. I was first displeased with the way they basically asked parents to butt out, then when a problem did arise it would take several attempts to get any response from the staff. The way the administration would deal with a problem was to eliminate instead of trying to find a solution. For example there were not enough lockers for every students so one grade had to carry all their books with them all day to every class. Leading to many things being lost, misplaced and on several occasions stolen. There were a few shining examples of excellent teachers but I feel that I cannot recomend a good rating due to the administration and unconsistant discipline.

Very nice teachers and staff. They stick to the rules here- they can be pretty strict. Sadly, it can be difficult to reach some of the staff members when you have a problem- they are always extremely busy. But, when you do reach them, they do go above and beyond to address your concerns. My child has been happy attending here for two years.

Jordan is a great school. Teachers try their best to teach the students as much as possible. The students thrive to learn and try support eachother.

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.
