Going to Houston High in Germantown, TN was an excellent experience. I was in the Honors Society and the classes I took challenged me. It was a great school because there was such a variety of classes to choose from. I took several AP courses. When I went to college I already had several credits from high school. The academics at Houston were great but so were the sports. We had a great baseball team, football team, basketball team and soccer team. I enjoyed the social aspect of going to all these games. There was always something to get involved in. The clubs were abundant. Many of the clubs involved volunteering in the community as a requirement of belonging to the club. This allowed us to help the community we were a part of. The administration and the teachers were the best. I always felt I could talk to them if I had a concern. I also felt like they really listened to what you had to say. I wouldn't give up my high school experience for anything.

Germantown has amazing teachers always willing to come early to school or do anything for the success of their students. The education system is very good with administrators always trying to take care of students and the above average scores are results of amazing schools in general.
Every place I have been in Germantown has the wonderfull feel of true hospitality and love.
Germantown High School is a wonderful school to attend. Over the four years I spent there I learned so much not just about school but about life as well. It is a very diverse and welcoming learning inviornment with teachers that actually care about their students. It can be hard to find a learning based school that does not only focus on athletics however, Germantown High School has mastered this. The number one priority of every staff member at this school is to make sure that each and every student learn to the best of their ability and is preparing for their future.
