Our students are wonderful! Parents are awesome. The staff is educated and knowledgeable. Administration is helpful and sincere. If and when you experience an issue that concerns you, whether you are student or parent, it is immediately addressed!! Kids are loved at this school!

This school has it all: phenomenal teachers, great administrators, caring parents. Kids are safe, cared for, and challenged to do their best every single day.

Staff and Administration is greatly lacking in responisbilty and professionalism. Parents are treated like road kill while their children are tormented and bullied. This school is lacking in education due to the environment created by administrations lack in experience and abilities to create a safe environment for teachers and students. Parents are not suppose to care what happens to their children on school grounds.

School does nothing to stop bullying. Children come home bruised and battered and the child doing the bullying is not punished or disciplined. Parents are told they are not a part of what happens to their child once they arrive at school.Some of the Teachers are the only great thing about this school.

I really like the way my daughter's concerns regarding bullying is handled. She feels that she always has an administrator that will hear her concerns and serve as problems solvers before situations socially escalate. I have been very pleased with how the girl gossiping has not been a major issue at WMS.

I think the school has exceptional teachers and administrators. My concerns are always addressed in a timely fashion and it is evident that student needs come first. I am so pleased at what I see as a parent volunteer on a daily basis.

My son was push through the system in Elementary school. He failed 2 of his TAKS test and put in summer school. The first 2 semesters of middle school he failed. Watauga Middle has help a lot. My son is now passing all of his classes now. The Trailblazer teachers are the best. They have brought up my sons self esteem up so much. He holds his head up high and is proud of his grades.

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.
