I think this school has a great enviroment, and i love that they initiate the act of a bully-free zone. The teachers are great and know how to properly discipline a child, and most of all the band is FANTASTIC!!!


Posted March 12, 2012

The small and disciplined environment on the entire SMSD campus, only makes for better educated students. My daughter transferred into the 4th grade and is now in the intermediate school. I am a happy parent. Thank you Mrs Bertalot, Nyeri, Principal garcia and Asst. Principal James.

i think that this school would be better off without school uniforms. most kids get detention just because they didnt tuck in their shirt, or they're wearing a hoodie. the only education you'll get in this school is out of the honors classes. the other classes arent that great. i've seen fights in locker rooms, hallways, and bathrooms. students need to respect each other. my parents are currently looking for a new school for the next school year.


Posted February 8, 2011

the school is not that good. the academic quality is slightly better than before, but there's still insufficient discipline, and a lot of students get in trouble, like for fighting, bullying, and the like.

Staff at Stafford Middle School are not being strict enough to the children. I see to much sagging as the youth call it. i think at athletics the kids who are getting grades there supposed to should go to the class they are lacking

This school is on a better track since the past years. I do think we need to help these students at the middle school age to be more respectful towards each other.

the academic qualities here at Stafford seem to be going in the right direction, however discipline needs to be enforced more, as does racial tolerance.there should be a stricter enforcement on students that cause class disruptions and bullying. the dress code need not allow student boys to wear their pants below the belt, that is ridiculous, style or not. My husband and I both work, but one of us always attend functions that my kids are involved in. Teachers need to always be fair to all students, do not exclude because a child may be shy and timid.

This school has a high turnover rate for teachers and administration; I find this unsettling.

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.
