Houston County Schools Reviews

I have been in Houston County Schools my entire life. The magnet schools are magnificent; however, I believe that the public schools could use quite a bit of work. I have attended four schools and volunteered in three, and the overall issue is lack of involvement on behalf of the students due to lack of opportunity. I think there are too few ways for students to enjoy school therefore there is no way to improve.

Houston county schools are very average, but they need a boost on security especially st Ashford High School and investment in new bleachers in the gyms.
I have attended a small private school in Houston County for almost four years now. I have enjoyed my high school experience at Northside Methodist Academy. I have no complaints as I enter my senior year.
