My School is Jubilee Academy for all my kids I have three that are attending Elementary and one in High school.And when my daughter the oldest first started jubilee three years ago she was getting bullied well, I thought it was going to be like you're typical public school. To my surprise I was so wrong , I set up an appointment with the principal for the very next day .She was so attentive she listen to everything I was telling her and showing her proof I had some with me. I will never forget what she told me that day that it was going to stop as of right now that they had no tolerance for bullying at Jubilee. After that day my daughter has been so happy to be a part of the jubilee Academy .I'm so thankful that she took action so quickly and for that jubilee its my #1 school.My kids are happy their grades are awesome, the teachers and their staff are doing a very good job, and I want to thank them all for taking the time to know my kids if they need tutoring they go out their way to make sure they are getting it.I'm happy to have found the school my kids will be graduating from.Now my 2 nephews and 2 nieces as well as my sister and brother attend Jubilee..

I love Jubilee Academy! The school is great and a safe , drug free , gang free environment. I would never send my kids to public school after experiencing the Jubilee Way......family, leadership, and caring, and loving organization. Thank you Jubilee for all your dedication to my children.

Jubilee Academy is a great school, the staff, teachers and parents have one goal and that is to make our children successfull for life. Everyone feels like a part of a big, caring family. When we have our Pre-k students know the names of our high school students by name means that we are close and we all about family values. This school special and as a parent I am greatful for all they do. GO LIONS !!

I have two children at this school. They both love their teachers. I feel they are competent and well trained. The staff on the other hand (cafeteria worker, coaches, etc) is somewhat unprofessional, but the classroom teachers do an excellent job.

I have two sons that graduated from Jubilee Academic and my daughter is currently enrolled in their 8th grade. My oldest son is attending community college and my youngest son is at UT Austin. My daughter is earning high school credits and should graduate with over 24 college credit hours. Awesome! Awsome school.

My daughter is in Pre-K, and I am delighted at the level of academic exposure she has experienced so far. Mrs. Lansford and Mrs Juarez are excellent teachers, and my daughter and by extension the school are fortunate to have them. I echo the other reviews by stating that this school feels like a family. Administration, teachers, and staff all care about the kids.

JAC is a great school. My daughter has attended since PK. I have been very satisfied with the teachers she has had so far. A few things that concern me though are the lack of electives for the Middle and High schoolers and their lack of a G/T program. I know that alot of childen would benefit from a program like that.

Jubilee is a great school, I tried several other charter school's before coming to Jubilee. My daughter is very happy here. She is doing so well in all her classes. She is a very shy person, but she has opened up alot since she came to this school. The teachers and staff are great. In my opinion Jubilee is a family oriented school with high values and principals. Thank you, Jubilee for a job well done.

I would like to give a few words about Jubilee, and how my 2 girls have improve alot in their studies. The teachers here are very good, and loveing, and understanding to each student. The staff is great, and also the students are great.This is not just a school, but a big family. My girls have learned alot here, and they are looking foward of starting school again this year. I would not trade another school for my girls!

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) was used to test students in English language arts and mathematics in grade 11. The grade 11 exit Level TAKS is a high school graduation requirement. TAKS 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.
