School is teriable teachers are never wrong admin is not approachable and offers no help. School teaches purely to TAKS test and is not concearned at all about progress of students. Worst school ever!

My child attends kitty hawk and I think that some of the teachers are not interested in your child unless they are smart. Teachers at this school they believe tutoring is just for kids who need to make up work that they have missed because they were absent. If your child is struggling there is no help for them. they don't know the meaning of privacy i was walking to my child's class in the morning during passing period and heard two teachers speaking negative about a student and their parents. Also the head administrator is unprofessional and oblivious as to what his role is suppose to be at this school.

This school has great teachers. The teachers are good at disciplining the students and are very knowledgeable about the subjects they teach. Kitty Hawk has a great athletics program and wonderful cheerleaders.

I love this school and it is very organized and very nice. The best teachers there are Mrs. Cody Ream, Mr. Clay Thomas, Mr. Larry Bailey, Mrs. Stephine Roberts, Mrs. LaShandra Lyons, Mrs. Rose Ransome, Mrs. Henley, and Mrs. Ashley Carow.

My child is an 8th grader and this is his third year at Kitty Hawk. I must say that this year things are definitely different. Communication is definitely not a priority anymore with the previous prinicipal having left. Teachers seem to know that communication to parents isnt as important to the new principal, because I cant get anyone to answer any questions. Sad.

Kitty Hawk is an unbelievable school. Whether there is good news to share or not so good news, the principal ensures that all parents know what is happening. I find her (the principal) to be very welcoming, very knowledgable and the kids love her!

I email this principal last year when my daughter was in the fifth grade. She email me back that day, with an answer. My daughter at time did not go to that school. Since that time I have notice that the staff at that school has good commutations with the parents.

Great team work, great opportunities for student to shine. My son is here in the country for the first year at G8, with the support from his counselor and teachers he has done excellence. He is a member of NJSH, he received Extraordinary Talent and Dedication to Excellence Awards tonight. Without Great School like Kitty Hawk, my son will not be at this point. My appreciation to all staffs that make us so happy and go forward.

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.
