My son is going to be new this 2012/2013 school year. I went as a pre-teen and I have no bad words as of now. I truly believe it's going to be a perfect fit for my son.

Posted May 8, 2012

I am the parent of a 6th grade student at Lamar Middle School. I am hoping my comment will help any parents who may be relocating to the TISD school district. I strongly recommend finding another school system to enroll your child in. Since relocating to Temple a year ago it has been a complete nightmare for my child and myself here. The amount of bullying by students and staff at Lamar is completely horrible. The school has failed the state testing and is below average. The kids at lamar have no respect for anyone including the staff, and the basic belief there is you can stay out of trouble if you just ignore the bullying and whatever you do don't fight back against the bullying or speak up against it or you will be suspended. This school is blind to the needs of their children and turn a blind eye to the problems there. They think if they ignore it, it will go away. No amount of talking to the staff does any good. My child is in the National Honor Role Society and is a Lone Star State Scholar yet hates going to school because he knows what the day will hold for him there. Please if you are thinking of relocating, Do Not Relocate To The TISD School District!

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.
