My students attend Rudder. I believe that it is a very high quality school. The teachers put forth great effort to teach the students and to hold them to high expectations in their academics. The coaching staff is awesome and the band directors push the musicians to become the best they can be. I have notices that there is a wide variety of students at Rudder and my students love getting to meet all types of people. When I have interacted with the administration, they have had the safety and care of the students as their highest priority. In fact, I have heard them say multiple times that I a child doesn't feel safe they cannot learn. Rudder is a great place to send your students and I am proud that my children had the opportunity to go there.

Teacher quality is sometimes good. They care about teaching you but that's about it. When it comes to bullying, they only send the person they assume is the bully to ISS and/or alternative school. They only send the student to the counselor if that student is crying all day or if they complain about wanting to kill themselves. The principal rarely gets involved and if she does it's only about threatening to send the student to lunch detention if they wear a blue sweater with a logo even though it's 40 degrees outside. They have lockers everywhere even though they are banned to use. The worst thing is probably the "populars." Teachers never notice this. Heck, they even treat the populars better! What I mean by populars is those who wear skin-tight khakis, XS polo shirts, dye their hair every 2 weeks, and get new boyfriends/girlfriends every other day. They only use non-populars to ask for homework answers. Other than that, they treat them like trash. If you are thinking of putting your child in this school and are not willing to buy them khakis and polos that are 3 sizes below their regular or bring them to the salon to dye their hair every other week, this isn't the school for you.

My daughter went there all three years never had a problem they are strict, but i guess its a good way to control teenagers the officer at the school very friendly and helpful. The past principal Mr. Zolinski was the best. Got parents involved which is good for kids to see there parents there.This principal is new havent really seen her. But overall GREAT SCHOOL.

I went to Rudder from 7th to 8th grade, and it was pretty cool except for the partent involvement. They got too involved and made the student dress code change to uniforms.

I want to start by saying that I am currently an 8th grader at Rudder. I have seen and heard a lot over the years. The teachers at Rudder are nice and they really care about their students. The counselors are kind and try to help the students in their time of need. The administrators are a different story. The students don't know a lot about them, because the administrators don't spend time with the pupils. Rudder needs to make an anti-bullying program. This will really help. Rudder is a good school, but they do need to work out a lot of problems.

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.
