Houck Middle School Reviews

1 review
Having worked here I noticed that the website data was not accurate. The class sizes for academic classes is closer to 35:1 as the total population is now close to 1,100 students. The populations are predominantly Latino/Hispanic and Caucasian with small growing populations of Russians, Marshallese and African American.
Houck is an AVID example school which is helping increase college readiness for students, resources and has encouraged more parent involvement, I think this is due to some of the long term staff involved in AVID, those teachers demonstrate incredible care and support to the students.

The clubs and activities are lacking, the few they have they cancel, so students are not able to find a niche unless they play a sport or are in the after school enrichment academy. I believe these are the main reasons the school culture is lacking. They students and staff need a reason to believe they should be proud to be Huskies.
