In 22 years of having children in various schools districts, Shelbyville ISD has been the best! I've had children from Pre-K thru 12, and truly love the willingness of faculty to address not only the children's issues, but any issues I might have as a parent. It is a safe school, with friendly staff who are always willing to help both student & parent. I can not say enough good about this school! A true blessing!

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.
