Kirby is really not the greatest but I must say there program. Although there are fights,bullying,and unesscary things going on at the school. Lets just say your child will be ok is he/she is smart

Kirby is an average school that promises a lot. Don't get me wrong, the program is better than other WF schools, but if your child is having any difficulties with his/her school work, they will not get the assistance they need from their teachers. They'll have to figure it out on their own. One review states that there aren't any fights at this school, but there are. Bullying also takes place here, but is not addressed. Overall, Kirby is an 'okay' school, just not the best.

This school is really great for your child to attend at. Parents dont have to worry about their child or children getting into fights or anything. Kirby is just the best Junior High there is.

Our son is completing his freshman year in high school now. The preparation he recieved at Kirby Math Science Technology Jr. High has allowed a smooth transition into upper level eduacation. No matter if your student is gifted or an 803 at- risk, the eduacation bar is raised for all to achieve. No one is left behind. From Mrs. Taylor, school principal, to the lunch staff, they all are interested in maximizing all students potential. No wonder Kirby has received National Blue Ribbon recognition. What a choice, Kirby Jr High. Our only regret is that we didn't get to go also. We would love to have gone back to a school like Kirby. Go Hounds!

I think the school is great. I have my second of three children at this school, and Mrs. Diann Lewis has been wonderful with both of them. They challenge my kids, and I think that is a good thing. Plus, Mrs. Lewis is all about good responsible values. Way to go, Kirby!

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


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.
