Administration knows nothing about setting a tone to reduce bullying or build a positive environment of respect. The attitude here is so negative. The kids are trying to be cool in a bad way. We moved our child.

Positivity Beater...People are mean and disrespectful, and most of all rascist. teachers yell and are too lazy to do there own work.

I am generally a very positive person, but I really hate this school! Kids are allowed to do whatever they want, there is lots of cussing and bullying going on right under the teacher's noses, they hear it all, but don't do anything about it. It is a very unsafe environment, and students are not respected whatsoever, they are treated very poorly.

I LOVE this school my daughter is an 8th grader, she is in all pre AP classes, she is involved in band, student council, tennis, art and is in the science club. She has and has had the most caring teachers, and the principal and the rest of the administration is amazing. Their one and only priority is your student; their well being, their success in their studies and socially and their enrichment as an individual. The homework is pretty heavy, but I know my daughter is going to be prepared for high school. My daughter has all kinds of friends, from different parts of the world, because Hobby gets all the students from most of the district that come as refugees and war affected countries. It is amazing how these kids speak fluently in a matter of months. I love the exposure my daughter is getting from being in a school that is so diverse and still excels academically! Thank you Hobby!

I was employed at Hobby M.S. for five years as a special-education teacher. The five years that I was employed at Hobby, were the only five years (non before and non after) that Hobby was a recognized campus. Albeit, don't expect Hobby to pull-it-off again after next year. If you do, hedge your bets first. Parents, you truly have no idea what goes on behind closed doors. It all comes down to the end-of-the-year state test scores (TAKS/STARR). If your child 'is' taking an annual state test that is 'numerically' important, then your child will garnish the administrator's (and hence the teacher's) attention. If your child is 'not' taking an annual state test that the state politicians deem credible or important, then, good luck in this department. With that said though, I refuse to personally criticize any employee at Hobby, because I know you're likely to take it the wrong way. So, I will let you be the judge.

Nothing special, pretty average , usual school where students are allowed to pretty much do or say whatever they feel without any serious discipline consequences it appears. Not impressed


Posted May 9, 2010

Lots of cussing thugs at this school. If you want to fit in, you better lower your standards. Never considered private school until now.

Hobby is GREAT!! The principle is OUTSTANDING!! She runs this school with high expectations and strong academic standards. The team at Hobby defiantly shows our children what school is all about, and the importance of a solid education. Much emphasis on college and making great grades. The school is Texas recognized which is HUGE!! Also has made commended performance on the TAAS test. HUGE!! If you don't know what this means for your children I would advise you to read-up on it. Great teachers with great leadership. You won't be disappointed.

I love hobby. Im a student here, and i think that its the best of the best!! some of the teachers would be better off completely fired but whatever. Dont underestimate the size of the school; its just perfect. Definately hard to get lost in. The classes are great. But, as someone said on this website, the counselors are no help at all. Parents, you could email mrs. Gray as many times as you want about schedual changes, but she doesnt do crap. When i tried, i got yelled at.

I am a student at hobby and I love it! I am in all AP classes and am doing very well. I highly recomend this school for kids because its has a very warm,safe enviornment.Theres an onschool police officer who is very good, and our new principal is amazing! The school is not that big so your student will not be late for classes (5 minuet passing period- I was scared to!) I was nervouse about attending hobby my 6th grade year but they welcomed me with open arms and got me on track. After the first day at hobby everything was very fluent and I knew wear to go. Come on down to hobby! I highly recomend it.

Hobby is a very solid Middle School and offers a wide curriculum to its students. There are plenty of Honors and Pre-AP courses which my child has found challenging. I disagree with the one parent review that cited Rawlinson would be a better choice; we know families at Rawlinson that are having a hard time dealing with the size of that school (larger than Hobby), and wish to attend Hobby. It's been a great community and my child has transitioned in these very crucial years well. I am thrilled with what goes on academically, socially, and with the opportunities for extracurricular activities. I think it's about what you are willing to commit to for your child.

We just arrived from M xico and my daughter is very happy at Hobby! Excellent teachers! Congratulations! Good environment! and the 6th grade counselor Mr. David Ely a nice person! Thanks for everything you are teaching to my daughter!

Hobby is surprisingly good. It is a big, economically diverse, and not new. Seeing it filled with all those hormonal middle schoolers is scary. However, come on inside and talk to the administrators and teachers, and find a suprisingly warm, welcoming place. Counselors will tweak a schedule to help a kid socially. Coaches take a rag tag group of kids and turn them into a team. Music teachers know how to alternately baby and push students. Vice Principals are idealistic and will remember your name. The new principal wants to stress academics even more. Forget about an expensive private school. With the range of programs and the caring here, you don't need it.

Hobby is an average public school. Teachers are good but have no time for one on one with students due to the sheer number of students. If English is a priority for your child look for another school. This dept is greatly lacking any great teachers, except for a 6th grade teacher named Grant. New school to the north called Rawlison would be a better bet with better class of students also.

Good public middle school. Have been disappointed with curriculum changes in advanced math and science courses on the district level, and TAKS preparation seems to be the over-riding priority. But, overall the school has most of the advantages of large suburban public schools.

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.
