Poor parent Communication. We had a teacher change in the middle of the first semester in 5th grade and we still have not received a note or anything home about the change or an introduction to the new teacher. Email addresses are old on the website and included teachers/Staff that retired last year and it didnt have new teachers for this year listed. As of Jan 1, one teacher had not had access to her voice mail( 5 months of school year had gone by). I feel the principal is making an attempt to improve things and she has been the fastest at returning calls and emails. I am disappointed in many of the assignments being worked on by the students as they are not addressing the objectives but seem more just busy work. I have had no communication as to progress in reading level or lexile level. I fear that my student will do very poorly on the standardized test as I have seen no growth this year.

The principal and staff are working together to bring the students, parents and teachers together for the one goal of success for our children.

I have decided to remove my son from this school. He too was being bullied last year. The teachers seem to have no control over the class rooms. My son went from making 'A-B' honor roll to making straight 'C's and was asking my wife and I to let him change schools. From what I see the Terrell ISD deals more with discipline problems than educating a child. They have to spend more time fixing problems while the student that is there to actually learn suffers.

Well, I have not had the best experiences with this school. My granddaughter is a student there and she has been subjected to bullying and ridicule. She is very self-conscious about her weight and has been teased unmercifully. I have gone to the administrative staff for help and have ended up having to deal with it myself. I don't know if they are afraid of the students, or if they are afraid they will upset certain parents, but we have kind of been on our own on these issues. Oh, they listen and even agree that it's not a good situation, but if something gets done, it's me that does it.

I think the programs are fine. The music and art activities are fine.The problem I have with this school is the bullying and the lack of help for the victims.

Wood is a fair school, it offers education to well behaved students that can learn easily. The teachers and leadership at this school are quick to judge students and don t attempt to know the children on individual bases. They do not try to help the students in need of certain life defining skills, but instead work to improve the skills of those who have had an easy time of grasping concepts.

Quality of education is fair. Music, art, and computer are rotated on a 9 week basis. Extracurricular activities are very limited. Parental involvement is severely lacking.

I have 3 children that attend TISD schools, 2 which attend Wood. My oldest son is Autistic and requires special attention and help. Wood is wonderful. There's no more to say, you would just have to experience for yourself. The school takes pride in its teaching and helps children strive to their fullest potential. The teachers are wonderful. They have fun with the students which make the children want to go to school. The Principal of Wood loves and cares for the well-being and education of all the kids. You won't ever be disappointed with this School.

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.

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.
