I have taught in five different states and now stay home with my children. I was pleased with the school for the first couple of years but no longer. The administration does not take bullying incidents seriously. In fact, they do not even address them. We are now dealing with an entirely different group of children coming into the school speaking another language. The problem being, the staff is not bilingual and a number of the kids are using this to their advantage. My child was bullied in Spanish. The school is no taking any stance on this and is letting the "affluent" families coming from another country determine what is acceptable. Just frustrated that we are in an area with good schools but are left with no choice but to place our children in a more nurturing/caring environment. I will not have any regrets leaving and am now looking forward to a better future for my children.

Wonder, wonderful school! Tough has been an incredible improvement to the CA school we attended most recently. It is a large school, but they run a pretty tight ship. The Principle is very approachable and visible. She goes out of her way to know the children and parents. Everyone working at the school (front office, car line, cafeteria) is friendly and authentic in their efforts to make a positive school experience for both the students and the parents. I have to take a moment to acknowledge the ladies in the front office. They are so genuine, helpful, sweet, and comforting! With 1250 students I wouldn't expect them to know my name, but they call me by name every time I walk into the office. There are plenty of opportunities to be involved with the PTO or in the classrooms and the parent involvement is fantastic. The teachers are very accessible and quick to respond and address any concerns. The curriculum is challenging and the teachers support and accommodate individual students and their academic abilities quite well. They aren't just teaching to the masses. Thrilled to be a part of this community!

This school has a really positive atmosphere but it is just too large for students to be considered as individuals. We are generally satisfied but wish the school was not so bureaucratic and money conscious. The PTO is very involved but organizes fundraising events that not everyone can even attend because there just is not enough room. The fundraising is frankly almost oppressive. When children attend "specials" like PE the kids are in groups of over 100. It's insane.

Very good school but too large. Great responses from teachers and administrators when needs arise to address concerns or bullying incidents. Our wish is for school to focus more on teaching. Need to have better communication to update parents on G/T program and curriculum that it offers. My daughter being labeled 'G/T' kid but basically doing the regular school work.

A good school for the area, but focuses too heavily on standardized testing (teach to test and need to just teach) and traditional teaching (repetition versus understanding). Children would be better served if curriculum could be more flexible and focus on small groups and individuals (I know this can be done because we came from a school that focused on a basic curriculum and kids could elevate levels at their speed if they mastered the current level). The 5th grade science curriculum is the best for the school.

level of parent involvement is great

There are many disturbing reports of bullying with no follow-up by administration to stop the behaviour. Parents don't seem to have a forum to hear from administration and discuss how to ensure school remains exemplary. Top school, but many parents are concerned.

This is an excellent school, with teachers who go above and beyond to teach children in a positive, encouraging manner. The principal has hired teachers who are enthusiastic and energetic. The mood at the school is very positive and it carries through to the children. We've had a wonderful experience here.

This school has been such a fantastic experience. The principal knows every child by name which is difficult with such a large student body. She is very visible during the day and is always willing to lend an ear. The teachers are top notch. They make you feel as if your child is the only one in the classroom. Emotional well being is just as important as academic success. Children are made to feel successful even if they aren't at the top of their class. The front office staff is the best. You are always made to feel welcome. Parent involvement is extremely high. If you want to dive in, there is somewhere that you will be needed and wanted. I would highly recommend this school to anyone who is looking for academic excellence in a nurturing environment.

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.
