Because it's a loving, caring, educational environment that is a huge part of my child's life. The people "make" the school and the people here are outstanding. The memories they are creating with and for my daughter will carry her throughout her life and help foster her love of learning which will reap benefits not only for her, but her children as well.

The teachers at Danforth middle school are always willing to go the extra 10 miles to help our children. They don't just say they care, they really do. The kids are great. For the most part, they are kind to one another and supportive.

It is in large part due to the outstanding schools in Wimberley, that I have decided to raise my family here.

I love Danforth Junior High because of the support they give to each other as faculty, to the students and their families and for their outstanding support of our PTO.

We moved from Houston to Wimberley when my child was entering 7th grade. The quality of the teachers is most impressive. This school has excellent leadership. Communication from the school is consistent and helpful, and individually most teachers try hard to work with each student and their parent(s) as needed.

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.
