I have greatly enjoyed my time in Pearland High School. There are tons of classes to choose from! The staff are great and are very helpful with the students in my classes. The school does do a good job with keeping the school safe, even though they don't enforce the rules a lot (dress code). The school does very well in its sports and football is amazing to watch! There is a lot about this school that makes me so glad I went here in my high school years!

Pearland ISD has a phenomenal education system and is in a great community! I’m now a junior in the district and the only complaint I hold is the amount of homework given. I know of no other district that gives out as much homework on weekends. Our time to rest over the weekend is controlled by the amount of homework we have. It can be anywhere from 3-7 hours of work! Other than the homework the district has great pride, great teachers, and the best education one could ask for.
As a graduating student from Dawson Highschool, I can say that Dawson is an amazing school. While Academics is exceptional, sports and clubs are on a whole another scale. However Dawson can be seen to have a view as a teacher against student (or teacher is always right) relationship. Aps can be overbearing on students on many occasions and could improve by gaining more of a student bond throughout the school. Understanding the students more, and find ways that can make their lives a little easier when they enter Dawson may help ease the tension between faculty and students.
