Secondary Education Department for Middle School Education

“Excellence is the Expectation”. The Department for Middle School Education is committed to serving our millennial youths of tomorrow. We understand that the middle school level is the segway to a good education and a better tomorrow. Our ten middle schools at United ISD welcome interactive learning community members composed of principals, assistant principals, teachers, administrative support staff, parents, and educational partners to encourage students to achieve and reach their full potential.  Educating for success-inspired learning and building citizenship is the mission of the department of middle school education. Its goal is to provide rigorous, differentiated, and TEKS-aligned instruction which fosters critical thinking skills, communication skills, empirical and quantitative skills, teamwork, personal responsibility, and social responsibility.

We recognize that every child is an individual and must be prepared to meet the requirements and increasing standards for STAAR testing as well as college readiness through intense research-based effective instruction via a district designed scope and sequence.  Students are provided the foundation in the core subjects including reading, math, language arts, science, and social studies as well as technology and college readiness courses that prepare students to meet the challenges of higher education.

Based on the simple premise that the world’s academic and economic expectations are continuously changing, the district continues to strive towards academic excellence and remains steadfast on its mission to maintain the highest level of instruction for its students in preparation for graduation, post-secondary education, jobs and careers for the 21st-century technology-driven world. We will conscientiously promote the following stems:

  1. Teach current applications of core subject skill sets
  2. Cultivating a learner-centered and innovative adolescent focusing on
    • Creativity and Innovation
    • Critical Thinking and Problem Solving
    • Communication and Collaboration
  3. Expose students to Information Power, Media, and Technology Skills
  4. Prepare students for Life and Career Skills

As a stakeholder in a UISD Middle School, you are encouraged to be an active member of this learning community. We would like to encourage our community to be open and involved in molding tomorrow’s leaders, by supporting and having an open line of communication with the campus administration, teachers, and staff. Together, we can achieve the ultimate goal of reaching every student’s potential in a safe, positive and challenging environment.
