• The goal of HISD is to ensure that every student has access to a rigorous instructional program required for college and career readiness. HISD has a standards-based curriculum that is aligned to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) and to STAAR (State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness). For more information, please see Curriculum and Instruction. A common standards-based curriculum guarantees that every HISD teacher has access to resources necessary to plan, teach, and assess instruction and student learning effectively. Parents can support our school by making themselves familiar with the expectations of their child’s teacher. Below are some resources that can help enrich your child’s education.

    (State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness)
    Scholars in grades 3, 4, and 5 complete STAAR assessments each year
    to measure the scholars' academic growth and development:
    3rd Grade = Reading, Math 
    4th Grade = Reading, Math, Writing
    5th Grade = Reading, Math, Science
             At Brookline Elementary School, teachers in each of these grade levels provide instruction, individual and group activities, and tutoring sessions to provide each scholar with the skills and support necessary to succeed on the STAAR assessments and in their future goals.
