As a former student from a couple of years ago, I would like to say that fights happen, in my opinion, because of lack of discipline at home. The only way the school will know if there is going to be a fight is if someone announces it. And what is the likeliness of a kid doing so? As for the drugs in the school you cant expect to not have any considering we are in SEGUIN. And many of the kids that go there unfortunately live in a place where they are exposed to drugs. If we want to make the schools a better place it has to start at home and work outward to the community. It takes a village to raise a child but without the help of the caregiver it creates many challenges. To me the teachers are great don't get me wrong there are maybe one or two "bad" ones but there always is anywhere you go. And these teachers deal with many kids and sometimes parents. The problem lies at time with the parents that go up to the schools and try to defend their "innocent" child without listening to both sides. As for the bullying that should be reported immediately if the school doesn't do something go the the administration or central offices. Bullying is not something that should be tolerated.

After having 3 kids attend this school, by the time my 3rd child made over there I was very disappointed with the school, The teachers and staff and administration. Their lack of concerns of our children education as well as their safety, yes it all depend s on whom your parents are before they attempt to fix the problem, their concerns are not about education but the money they get from our government. My child was harassed and bullied but did the school do anything ? no they turned their heads and looked the other way. There drugs in our schools and yes our administration has no control due to the staff lack of concerns with our children safety. There are more fights in this school then in the past year, I see more and more kids either being home schooled or parents going as far as moving to other school districts to maintain their kids education and safety.

I have been extremely disappointed in a certain teacher who curses in class. She chooses her favorites and makes it a point to put down those with whom she has an issue or just chooses to dislike. This is done in the classroom in front of the class. I do not think a teacher should curse in class and expect student to respect her. I also think teachers should act more mature than their students and never,ever make fun of or be cruel to them. This is something that is known by the administration. Don't appologize for her, we do not want her influence on our students. Wake up!

Briesemeister Middle School has been a positive experience for my child. Skills lost at the 6th Grade Center have been recovered and my child has made great academic progress over the last year and a half. This is due totally to the teamwork of the teachers and administrative staff. The principal's leadership is reflected in the quality of the teachers at this school.

I am a student at Briesemeister Middle School, and am happy with the school. The teachers are excellent and very helpful. Many of the teachers will sponser extracurricular activities for the students. The school enviroment is normal, with all the stereotypical 'crowds'. Overall I give this school a five.

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.
