Posted October 10, 2012

My daughter is in her second year at York Jr. High. She is an A student in 8th grade. She had a wonderful year in 7th grade and was very much looking forward to this year (2012-2013). Unfortunately there is a new principal this year, and the entire atmosphere in the school has changed. Many of her friends have expressed that the school feels more like a prison now. Instead of being excited to go to school, they dread it. This is very sad and disappointing. The new principal is militant, overbearing, and sometimes downright rude. As a parent of a rapidly growing teenager, I am extremely disappointed in the leadership at York Jr. High. I would think twice about enrolling my child in this school.

My daughter has attended this school for the last two years and she has bloomed socially and academicaly. I know the school doen not tolerate and violence or threats and as a parent that is a plus knowing that they defuse a situation before it gets out of hand. My daughter we found out needed to be in special ed math and the whole team was wonderful to see that it happened quickly and now she is a A student because of their concerns. Many clubs and organizations to join my daughter has had the best two years there.

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.
