Vantpho, Home Buyer in San Francisco, CA

Is Billy Baines Middle school really deserving of a '6' rating?? Love a home in Sienna Plantation but this is a deal killer for me.

As of now, there are areas of Sienna Plantation zoned to First Colony Middle School, which has a higher rating on Great Schools website.

Although Billy Baines has a rating of 6, the students scored well on the TAKS (Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills) test. Keep in mind the rating is an assessment of the teachers as well as the students. With this in mind, it is always most important of the educational support the students receive from home. In other words, great parenting always over comes education challenges.

The accountability rating is "acceptable", enrollment 1501, Grade span 06-08. You can check with the schools to see if you can do intra transfer.

I was surprised by some of the negative reviews. But even if there is some truth to them, don't let it be a deal breaker. If you aren't happy with the neighborhood school, Fort Bend ISD has "academies" which allow students to apply to a special program and, if accepted, attend a school they are not zoned to. One of the most popular ones is Quail Valley's GT Academy. It has fantastic teachers and attracts many of the best students from around the district.
