Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS)

In 2010-2011, the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) was used to test students in reading in grades 3 through 9; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in English language arts in grades 10 and 11; in mathematics in grades 3 through 11; in science in grades 5, 8, 10 and 11; and in social studies in grades 8, 10 and 11.

    While its not the top of the line school in the States I couldn't pick a better environment for my kid to be in. Its a very personal atmosphere and great for the development of young adults.

    My child goes to gatesville and he is very happy. I believe the drug level is down and the academics is high.

    This school is one in which God has not been removed. Gatesville High School is a place where morals and values are still taught and demonstrated by the faculty and staff. The community of Gatesville is conservative and these conservative views are shared by and with our children. I strongly recommend Gatesville High School to any parent wishing to enroll their child in a caring close knit supportive environment where they can focus on learning and not survival. Gatesville High School is definetily a school I support and appreciate.

    Gatesville High School is a great school that helps prepare their students for college. They have the AP courses that helped ease the transition from High School to college easier for my child and I am forever greatful for that.
