The Harris County School System brings together a very diverse group of people, and it creates a community. They say it takes a village and this school system does an excellent job of creating a family. There is always a teacher, administrator, or adult around to help students succeed. There is also plenty of opportunities for students to achieve their fullest potential Whether it be the football games, the parades in the square, or the latest drama production, every school has activities to keep students engaged and support system to help those who need it.

The Harris County Schools are very welcoming to new students! The school provides ways for new students to interact with other students and helps get them involved in the school. These schools also work very hard in making every student feel safe and heard and works fast in stopping bullying.
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!
