Being a student from this school makes me feel lucky because I have resources that surround me in this school like programs that could help me or others to their choice of careers. There's clubs that focus on certain criteria like the club explorers, I was able to learn and get a insight of a police officer duties and responsibility but not also that but there's one more program that you are able to work in the Houston Emergency Center which is amazing. The program is able to offer you a job at a age of 17 or 18 and it will be great to be seen in a resume. The school overall offers a lot of opportunities and the administrations help on your choice of career by giving advise and pointing out classes that would help us even more, certain colleges or universities that we should consider to look at. Our school of Law and Justice is pretty great in what I see and I'm glad I attend here.

I love the atmosphere that HSLJ creates between students and administration. The administration creates a safe and welcoming environment for students to be able to ask questions or to come to if they are having any difficulties. I love the programs they implement in school. I am in the school's JROTC and I learn skills necessary for life such as leadership skills and communication skills. HSLJ also has programs that focus solely on the career you envision yourself in.
My experience in the High School For law And Justice is One of The coolest and best experience i have gone threw so far. For Example, I am a Current Student and at this school i experience a lot of things for examples i Do teen court and to me that's such a great experience for me because am in court being part of an real case and standing in front of a judge being able to find justice defend the procedure or represent the state of Texas is an honor but i'm also Part of the FBI program which is also a amazing program i go to the FBI Building and i have a mentor that talks to me and helps me out with certain things also they introduces us to things we have never seen or do for example how to do finger prints and also how they do car searches ect... there is so many hands on things in this school its amazing our school also offers Law Day . the teachers love and care about there students future and how they can help us to be someone in the future .
