During the almost 4 years that I have attended this high school has been such an experience. Before, I came from a whole different school district so I feared that I wouldn't be able to get along with others, but I was wrong. I was able to make great amazing friends in this school that I now treasure so much! Not only did I make new friends, I also enjoyed being able to part-take in their extracurricular activities and school events, with how much fun they made it!

C.E. King High is pretty much an average school. Not to terrible but not the best in certain departments. However, there is no denying that this school holds potential to grow and that was very much seen after Hurricane Harvey, and the build of the new high school. If I can say one thing I love about the school was the close community among a diverse class of students. Majority of the school is filled with minorities and first-generation students, so each and everyone understands each other in where we are coming from. I will say their is much room of improvement on their education department. There are passionate teachers involve in this school but there are some who give the bare minimum towards their students. Sports may not be the best, but the school spirit at a football season or soccer are always there. Overall the school has room for improvement and the potential to do it. Hopefully, with the new high school this potential will be able to be reach.
My experience with C.E. King High school overall was pretty okay. They really care about your safety hence the metal detectors and taking days off when the weather becomes bad. The hallways are always crowded though and getting to class can become hard. The teachers here are nice and provide a nice environment. One of the things about this school is that they care way too much about football and not so much any other activities. I'm saying this because they changed the bell schedule just to make more time for football which in my opinion is a little absurd. When looking back at all the years I've been here, people are so supportive and only want the best for you no matter what you decide to do.
