Houston Public School District Reviews

2 reviews
Not many people expect a small-town public high school to be something remarkable, but Houston certainly was. I first went to Houston going into 9th grade for my first year of high school. I had little to no difficulty meeting amazing people who eventually became my closest friends. The academics is remarkable as well; for a few years in a row, Houston has ranked as one of the highest schools in all of Minnesota for academics, as well as the elementary school. I never succeeded much in elementary school, but at Houston, I was able to stay on the A Honor Roll and even become NHS President. Not only are the teachers very smart in their fields, they're also some of the kindest people I've ever known. Every one of them cares so much about the success of every single student in the whole school. So to anyone looking for a school district that is equal parts smart and friendly, look no further than the Houston School District.
