Connally High School Reviews

I would say Connally High School has great opportunities for many students, however I just wished that they would have thought ahead about combining both hard high classes that assigned homework everyday and college classes that honestly needs study time on a course. If they would have thought about our schedules and help work around other classes, then maybe senior year wouldn't be so hard and stressful enough where we can't finish our work. Honestly, my experience has been amazing my first three years in high school, but coming into my senior year and seeing as how much homework, studying, applying, and working I have to do in order to keep up with tests and due dates is dreadful. People believe its "senioritis" and honestly I think it's just overwhelming stress because of the unorganized organizations that the school has. Overall, their intentions are generous and thoughtful to educate students even further than what some schools ever could.

I would say that I have enjoyed my time at Connally immensely. I enjoy all of the teachers and the people that I meet at school. All of the staff members make school feel very fun for myself and make it so I will be able to have a productive and safe environment for me to work in. I would say that this school despite it not being very large or clean in how it looks, it provides enough to prepare you for the future ahead
