Going to Steele has been the best four years of my life so far! I'm in college now and I miss having school pride, being surrounded by friends, and the exciting attitude the faculty and teachers had almost every day toward teaching. Steele High is very connected to the community and everyone in our town cheers them on during Friday football games. The campus is clean, bright, and lively. Steele has a brand new wing with modern computer labs and new furniture and books. I never felt unsafe going there, always felt like I could talk to my teachers and they offered many services to struggling students. Steele offered a wide range of extracurriculars from metal shop, financial studies, programming, robotics, early child development, music theory, and many more that I could list. The district also offered AP and dual-credit courses for students to get a head start on college credits. Steele has earned its rank of being a top 200 texas high school and I would recommend it to any/everyone.

Steele High School is a very great school in all regards! The staff and teachers are very responsive to the needs of the students and are very qualified to perform their jobs to the best of their abilities. All classes are beneficial for the learning experiences of the students and try to be very inclusive in their teaching methods. The student body is also a factor that contributes to the excellence of the school. The students are very diverse in all aspects, and it is quite possible for all students to find a club or a group that they can fit in with. Extracurriculars are also a noteworthy topic when speaking of the school. The athletic and arts programs are both very successful in their own respects and consistently gain awards for their performance. Anyone looking to find a school that is exceptional in every way will not be dissatisfied with Steele High School!
Byron P. Steele High School is, if nothing else, a jack-of-all-trades, excellent-at-many. Yes, the wildly-acclaimed football team and games are the school's piece de resistance as far as reputation is concerned; however, underneath that surface brews a lot more. From academics to fine arts to leadership clubs to career-oriented clubs to other non-football sports, I've seen many friends find belonging in an environment that would normally be incredibly intimidating to navigate. Obviously, not everything is perfect - the emphasis on quantity of things to do inevitably leads to resource scarcity at times - but that's not the point. When there's hard work and setbacks to be involved, there's a supportive group of people willing to cheer them on whether they strike out or become the talk of the town. And that's the tea.
