Sam Houston Community,
Sam Houston Middle School is an official “NO EXCUSES UNIVERSITY.” Our school beliefs are based on six exceptional systems:
1. Culture of Universal Achievement
3. Standards Alignment
4. Assessment Plan
5. Data Analysis
This exceptional system guides and drives our faculty in quality instruction tailored to each student’s needs.
Our pledge to you is that every student at Sam Houston Middle School will be proficient in Reading, Writing, Math, Science and Social Studies. There are varying abilities and proficiency timelines for every student, but we will not give up on their education. We will keep working until every student is proficient in Reading, Writing, Math, Science and Social Studies.
In essence, we are changing the culture of Sam Houston Middle School. We are shifting from student management to student learning;from it is about what is best for us (faculty and staff) to what is best for student learning.
We continue to experience great success in athletics, band, choir, and orchestra. This is a testament to the commitment our students, parents, community and faculty show to the importance of a quality education. When our students leave Sam Houston Middle School, we are committed to their being prepared for high school and ultimately college if they so choose to attend.
Transformation is not easy and is not without setbacks. It is easy to revert back to the traditional ways of running a school that have been used for over one hundred years. The key is to have more transformation and less setbacks resulting in the true educational goal, increased student learning.
