About the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness: 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. At high school, however, grade-specific assessments will be replaced with 12 end-of-course (EOC) assessments: Algebra I, geometry, Algebra II, biology, chemistry, physics, English I, English II, English III, world geography, world history, and U.S. history.

Open Quote This school has great teachers and some of the the worse I have met. Hope you get a good one. There are teachers in this school for years who still haven't matured for their age. If they dislike a parent they will gossip, spread baseless lies and start rumors, having an unfriendly attitude and including passive aggressive behaviors toward a parent. Its unthinkable. They are a disgrace to dedicated educators. One of the administrators, a VP who was there for many years, was an absolute lazy bum with an attitude problem. A lot of parents couldn't understand how she lasted for as long as she did. She did not respond to emails or answer any questions in a sensible manner. Apparently I heard she left. Hope the parents have someone better now, which they deserve for their kids. 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.
