My child is beginning 6th grade, so far academically they are making my child work. My child is in accelerated subjects and we are happy with Stinson. My only complaint is the way they handled locker distribution. I will keep updating this throughout the year.

DO NOT PUT YOUR CHILD IN THIS SCHOOL. I came from scobee and was excited to have more freedom but it was the worst year of my life 2012-2013. I am a straight a student and has never gotten in trouble ever! But of course I got accused of something I DIDDNT DO. and had to get a C one 6 weeks becuase they diddnt let me catch up on my work. This school is a prison. On the outside it looks like a school but on the inside it is a holding cell for 2890 people! Now I am paying 800 dollars a month to get out of that prison!!! DON'T GO TO PRISON!!!!

horrible school! don't even dare let your kid here. One way hallways, supper mean teachers, and if you do somthing innocent you will most likely get a d-hall. I came from a school I thought had alot of students, 725 but this one has 2980!!! you are a number. I am a A+ student who is considered a "nerd" so everyone makes fun of us. some of my teachers don't even know my name. But all I know is if your popular and get straight Fs, jump people, get in fights, this is the perfect place for that. most of my friends already left even some are being homeschooled. I am planning to move next year sooooo bad!

My 12 year old daughter cannot wait to get out of this school. This is her first year here (2012-2013) and she is miserable. It is overcrowded, most teachers I've observed are rude to their students and do not appear to really care about the children. Also, too much violence for my 6th grader...lots of verbal aggression, threatening and fighting. She is a really good student who is having a hard time concentrating in class due to all the distractions. I'm not saying all the kids and teachers are bad, but it seems as if there are too little who care and teach. Looking in to charter schools otherwise going to have to go private and figure out a way to pay for it later.

Stinson is a great school! I've been there for 6th in 2008-2009 and for 7th 2009-2010. It's one of the best schools I've ever been in and trust me I've been going to a lot of schools. As lucky as I was I had to move and that was heartbreaking for me! It's like if there was something in that school that it was the reason why I didn't want to go. Anyway even though I'm a General now I will always know that I'm a SKYHAWK by heart!!GO SKYHAWKS<3


Posted August 10, 2010

My daughter started 6th grade in 2009 and it was the worst first year in middle school she ever had to experience. This is due to the limited control of students that were displaying very inappropriate behavior and the staff's lack of involvement. Because my daughter had such a horrible experience we are now trying Private schools just to try to keep her motivated about school.

Too many teachers are really rude to the kids and they don t appear to care that they are being rude. I don t have to hear this from my child, I can walk down the halls and hear it coming from the classrooms myself. Kids who unfortunately didn t pass the TAKS test are given a special gift that lets the whole school know that they were one of the kids not passing the test. The kids can t even discretely hide this gift away from view to avoid humiliation. Shame and lowering self-esteem seems to be how this school has decided to motivate. The principal is a figure-head. He is not a good leader or communicator that s for sure. While there are exceptions, many staff at this school don t even try to communicate to parents in a timely, courteous and knowledgeable manner. Why did this school score an 8 from GreatSchools?

Stinson's teachers are wonderful. They were always there for me when I needed help or just wanted to talk. There's a bunch of activities, something for everyone to enjoy. All of the staff is friendly and nobody ever made me feel uncomfortable. Stinson is a great school. Go Skyhawks. -Class of 2011 student

Our family made the best decision to leave Stinson Middle School in the summer before eighth grade. Moving to another middle school gave us the opportunity to see what a good school is really like. At Stinson Middle School, my child received detention and in-school-suspension for the most ridiculous reasons. The response regarding her behavior was that children change and act out when they go to middle school. At the middle school we transferred to my daughter excelled as never before. She even received a Silver Star Award recognizing her for citizenship, leadership and a positive attitude. My message to the staff is to encourage the students, and to view them as good kids, who are willing to learn, rather than the juvenile delinquents that you seem to think they are.

Stinson has many wonderful teachers, but it is very overcrowded and impersonal. The first week of school I requested some changes in my son's schedule that I thought would improve his experience his first year in middle school and was denied any changes whatsoever. I doubt my requests even made it past the counselor to the principal's office. They just don't like to make changes, because they have too many kids to personalize any child's education experience, in my opinion. The counselors offer little/no help , and did nothing for either my daughter when she attended, or my son. I'm glad our residential area was zoned for the new middle school 'Jefferson'. I'm sure it will eventually become just as crowded, but maybe he'll have a better chance at a more personalized education and his parent's input will be appreciated.

The transition from elementary school to middle school was difficult for my son, who also felt overwhelmed by the crowded conditions at Stinson. With the support of his counselor and teachers, he succeeded in overcoming his fears. Getting involved in the school band also helped him gain confidence in himself. Stinson has an outstanding band program under the direction of award winning teachers, Mrs. Esparza and Mr. Melendez!

My son attended this son. He thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere considering he came from a small school environment. All kids, teachers, and parents were kind.

Teachers at this school are good. The principal lacks leadership and discipline. He doesn't believe the children should be disciplined. They should learn by their mistakes and not be aware of the boundaries.

way too overcrowded - the child is a number not a student...

Mr. Frantzen is a fabulous principal and the teachers we have experienced have been way above average! Stinson has many of those teachers 'that change lives'. We have been VERY happy with our Middle School experience

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.
