My kids love it. This is my two youngest kids first year and my oldest third year at this school. The kids learn to be more independent and responsible. Everything is mostly hands on, which my kids love. This school is wonferful about keeping the parents envolved by having family nights etc. The grades range from Pr-K to 8th.

They received an exemplary rating (again) this year. Maybe not every year, but often. The faculty and staff are caring, trained, skilled professionals and I feel lucky to be involved with this school.

This school is fantastic! My children have received the most high quality education. The teachers are well-educated and qualified. There are many different opportunities for the children to experience things that are not available at other schools.

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.
