Got out of Spurger school In 32 years ago and have graduated 4 children from Spurger. Spurger schools are in my opinion the best.As time goes by it seems as more and more out of town folks come to Spurger with city ideas,and it seem to sometimes take a toll on the system. There are really good Teachers and Administrators in this school system. I am proud to have had my children go to school here, and now have 3 grandchildren attending. I would recomend this school to anyone that truly cares for their children and is willing to work with the system. You can be all YOU WANT to be in this school. opportunity is HERE for the asking.

I graduated 30yrs. ago, my daughter graduated 5yrs. ago and I have a daughter in high school. We have moved here so our children could attend school here. The staff is great, small classes, great community support. Children receive a great education here, if they want it. Many past students are now very successful because they had a strong educational background. It is an oppurtunity to attend SISD. Remember 'It takes a village to raise a child'? Spurger is the village. Spurger is a great place to raise your children. Spurger ISD is a fantastic school. No school or community is perfect, but they can be as great as we make them.

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.
