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.

The grade 11 Exit Level TAKS is a high school graduation requirement. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

    What I think others should know about Jones High School is that the kids in the school is not what everybody assume. Majority of the kids are not dumb dirty hood or ghetto. I always been around diversity (Caucasians) and so for my junior year in High school I wanted to try something different by going to a intercity school. In my opinion I think the school did improve from the school year of 2012-2013. Also the teachers are very educated and came from some of the best Universities. Such as A&M Baylor PV TSU etc... I am proud that I attend Jessie H. Jones High School.
