The highschool in Stafford is horrible. The kids are running everything and the children who graduate are not academically ready for college if you want your child to learn I highly recommend you choose a different highschool in which your child can learn.

I have been going to stafford for two years now and it has came a long way the new facilities are great they provide collage courses that are a good way to not only prepare for collage but decide what you want to do with your future. The teachers are amazing and so willing to teach the school has brought in new coaches and teachers that have greatly improved the school. The only flaw is sometimes students who are not willing to learn cause problems, but are always taken care of.

I currently in 11th grade and attend Stafford High School. The new school building is looking great and I look forward for a good future down the road towards my senior year. The teachers are great and do their jobs but there is one issue. Stafford accepts kids out of district and those kids are usually trouble makers from other school districts. Stafford should not accept theses kids because they DO cause problems in the class and the learning environment is slowly going down hill. They should only accept kids who are out of district who have a clean record.

I am excited about the direction SMSD is going, the new facilities and programs that are being installed are going to make SMSD a shining light in all of Fort Bend Co. In fact, people will be lined up to enroll their children. The new Super is great - Lance- and teacher quality is improving. I have three children in the SMSD system. The only negitave is the Jr High - lots of student to student agression and an administrator who looks the other way. Hopefully that will change soon. In all, SMSD is making great strides in improving the system and on their past preformance.

My kids did really well in the lower grades at Stafford MSD. However, High School is a different story. There seems to be little Teacher control. The bad kids basically run the school. My daughter has been caught up in group punishment more times that I can count. she is a good kid and causes no problems in class...but always gets punished along with the entire class. Group punishment does not work at Stafford MSD. I have also heard from several kids that have graduated from Stafford MSD that were NOT prepared for college....especially science. We need to stop teaching the TAKS test and start teaching from the text books. I would not recomend Stafford MSD for upper grade education. Go somewhere else for your kids education.

Stafford MSD is on a downward slop toward failure. The leadership of the district is constantly changing. For example, from the year 2003 to 2007, Stafford High School has had four different principals and about four different vice principals. As far as superintendents go, there have been three who have not improved a thing at the middle and high school level. What s the one upside to this school? For an old building, the facilities are well kept. That makes up for everything.

The student body is getting worse, very high turnover rate for teachers. Also, the principal is trying an old system that obviously don't work. Overall, the school get much worse from my first year to the last one.

Grades k-8 are excellent. High School is a different story. There is no teacher control. The bad kids control the School. It's not a place to send someone that wants to learn and get an education. Drugs and Gangs are very common. Stafford High School needs better leadership and not be afraid to use discipline.

Positives: 9th grade teachers extremely qualified and focused towards student development and communication / accountability processes with parents. Low student to teacher ratio. Classrooms clean and orderly. Higher than average pay for teachers. Small student population and high teacher quality could be huge draws and make this school very attractive with on track financial, curriculum management and broader community support. Negatives: no comprehensive parent organization driving key issues of accountability or improvement. Broad / current internet communication presence at all levels seriously lacking. Campus facilities and technology very dated. Encountered feedback that existing parent population can stimulate lowered classroom academic performance expectations in exchange for passing grades. District is required to send funds to other schools as a part of the current robbin' hood school finance process.

They need to find a way to keep the good teachers! It's ridicules to have to many unexperienced teachers, at least in the subject they are currently forced into teaching.
