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.

    I absolutely love this school. I am an 8th grade student that has been going here since 6th grade. I love the fact that it is only a 2A school which means we have a close-knit student body. The teachers are very good at what they do and how they teach. Our school recently started an athletics program for 7th and 8th graders. Our coaches are fantastic. The Middle School administration is very caring about the students. I love that this is a school for military children so that everyone is going through the same toubles as everyone else in regards to deploying family members and moving every few years. The only thing I personally do not like is the library. The new Librarians have new rules which I don't like. We have to pay $.10 a day for overdue book which is why I don't use the library. This year we have a brand new cafeteria which is gorgeous. I personally being a student of this school for 3 years would highly recommend this school to any Military child and hope they have the best possible year in their new school.

    I have heard nothing but bad things about this school. For one the faculty specifically the main office is very disorganized. My daughter has had a rough year and needed some doctor's visits frequently. Considering the school only allows 9 days unexcused absences we asked the office what we could do to turn those into excused absences so she wouldn't have to worry about losing credit. So we called and said "Can we just bring in any note with my signature on it? That way it's excused?" The office replied with a yes and we were able to move one with my daughter's doctor appointments with ease. However last week she was sent to the attendance office and was told she must make up 16 HOURS worth of detention because she went over the limit. I couldn't believe this. Next I'd also like to think that a tiny sparkle on my daughter's nose isn't more important than her classes. I want to point a finger at "Suzy" Hawkinson who wouldn't let my daughter leave the office til her nose ring was out of her nose. Keep in mind my daughter had a huge math test to get to. Her nose was infected at the time and was medically not able to remove it. I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone.

    I really like the school. Kids have many extra curricular activities and sports opportunities and are very important Kids are able to take AP Classes. Teachers and administration are reachable and available. School is small. GREAT SCHOOL.

    Phone calls to administration aren't returned -- it's been a week now. Admin and teachers are contemptuous and often condescending to parents and students. Emails to 8th grade teachers are sometimes ignored with no return reply. If a student is struggling s(he) is regarded with suspicion (esp. if there's a 504). We're concerned and involved parents and the treatment we and our daughter receive is the worst that we've ever had in any district. She is regarded with hostility and contempt - is asked after struggling with tests and homework if she's manipulating the situation to obtain more help -- or she's asked by one teacher isn't my homework important enough? Stay away! No encouragement here. Our poor experience suggests why the state of education in TX is so dire.

    Great High School I had one graduate from this school and I like the high school!!!! The middle school needs help.

  • (4 years ago)

    I think the school should have more activities for the middle school. we dont have sports or clubs.(just 2) it feels more like a prison than a school

    Cole Middle School will go on and on telling you about how they are a ISD school BUT only the Military Children are allowed to attend. Do they care how they treat the Military Child? Absolutely not! As a spouse of a soldier who is currently on his 4th deployment this is the worst school for support of any kind including special needs in our 24 years in the military. Things that aren't important are HUGE things that are important are over looked ever single day. I only wish we had either sent them off post to a private school or home-schooled. Ft. Sam Houston is a wonderful place to be stationed... just don't let your children attend their schools.... unless you love stress.

    This school is the worst schools for my children for both academics and treatment of students/parents in my 20 years of being in the military. I would suggest home school or private.

    The school is small but they have tons of programs available for the students. A large portion of the faculty graduated from R.G. Cole so school pride is strong. We came from a 5A school to here and are very happy.

    Going to have to disagree with 'blah'. The youth have plenty of oppurtunity if they seek it. When we moved here the Principal and Vice (2006-7) took my troubled son under their wings and embraced him right away. He flourished at first but made other choices. However if you choose to communicate and not be negative an awesome school. Cannot say the same for teachers at Ft Sam Elementary.

    Cole's great. Everyone knows everyone. They students and staff are very supportive. Its also nice since we are a small school everyone can participate in a sport if they want to.

  • (5 years ago)

    I was not impressed with the school. The campus is nice but the lack of communication with staff poor testing results and the reading materials located in the media center are inappropriate for 7th graders. Books are shared with high school students and many have sexual content complete with profanity. Vice principle aware but head librarian did not remove books rather she defended the books.

    Cole awesome! lol Track team is amazing of course. Wish our colors were red and black but it is what it is. Don't really have a school so don't be shocked if you come here and your in a portable.lol

    I absolutely detest this school. Sure the 'pupil to teacher ratio' is great but is that really what makes a good school? I spend most of my classes doing idiotic childish things like coloring in a 9th grade pre-AP class. To a parent or a teacher this school's credentials may be perfect but I suggest you spend a day there before you decide if they are true!

    Cole struggles mightily to offer more than most 2A schools. We do not treat children like kindergarteners our ROAPS is a research based discipline approach to make the school safer and more orderly. We ask kids to walk to the right to relieve congestion in our narrow halls especially when kids are at lockers. Our parent club works concessions for baseball so they do know there is a team. I just didnt want this parent's inaccurate view to stand unopposed.

    I love that the teachers are nice and very helpful towards the students and the parents and other adults

  • (7 years ago)

    quality~ this school lacks much of the needed requirements for academic success. they treat young adults as if they were kindergarden students with their 'ROAPS' concept. 'walk on the RIGHT side of the hallway only!' availability of extracurricular activities~ 'we have a baseball team?' only male dominant sports are paid any attention to football & basketball. no one cares about swim team or soccer. parent involvement~ the parent club president doesn't even know there is a baseball team and that is the only parent involved with the school...

    This school was a huge dissapointment. We are a military family and my child has attended several schools all of which have been very different but at the same time all have been willing to at least try to serve my child at her functioning level. The administration and staff at this school were more concerned with creating a false sense of achievement for the school as a whole than they were with providing opportunities for true success.My child is in this schools 'gifted' program after waiting half the year to be identified for this special program it finally began in February!On the first day with hopes that she would soon be challenged with a specialized curriculum she was told by the teacher that 'they don't really do anything It's more or less a place for the gifted kids to hang out and be with others like themselves'.
