Harris County Schools have wonderful, caring and loving teachers! Not only have my children attended the schools from Pre-k through high school graduation, but I am also a graduate of the system. They do a great job of preparing students for college and/or the work force. I would recommend this school system to ALL my family and friends!

Growing up in Harris County for 10 years, I never really knew much beyond the county lifestyle. Yes of course, I knew our school education system was no where near Cobb county and some Atlanta areas education systems, but it was still an excellent system offering what they could with what they had. It wasn't until I went off to UGA that I found there are education systems out there that are so much more far advanced i.e. Fulton County schools. Kids at schools like these are able to start taking AP exams their freshman year and have to pay less than $20 to NOT take their AP exam vs HC where you pay almost $100 TO take the exam. I'm not blaming the school because Harris County isn't made of money, but I never realized how advanced other school districts were compared to mine.
The Harris County School System encourages students to be themselves while striving for the best that they can be. The faculty and administration knows most of the students by name and wants everyone to do their best. As a student of Harris County High School, I have never felt that my education was less than that of a larger school because the teachers will work one-on-one with you whenever they can.
