About the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness End of Course: Beginning in spring 2012, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR™) will replace the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS). The STAAR program at grades 3–8 will assess the same subjects and grades that are currently assessed on TAKS.

Open Quote I am a student at Burnet Middle School but what ive heard from McCallum High School it is a great school to go too,alot of people from what ive heard from have alot of opinions about McCallum but most say it is a great school to go to,especially from what I like about McCallum is that its a Fine Arts School and ive gone there only 1ns and my sister has she likes it in McCallum but my mom moved her but she's a good writer and a good story teller and she would of gotten higher on her writing and reading if my mom would of let her stayed,alot of smart kids go to McCallum and have succeeded in McCallum than from other schools that ive heard in the Austin area. Well my opinion is that McCallum is a good school so if you would like your kid to go to a good High School McCallums the best place. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
