Houghton Central High School Reviews
Looking back at high school, I had a lot of ups and downs, but who doesn't in high school? I think my overall experience was excellent because Houghton High School is such a caring school. They have great teachers (for the most part) and they really prepared me for college. They aren't necessarily the most diverse school, but I wouldn't say that hindered my performance or experience while in attendance at Houghton High. They are a small school so they don't have the top-notch sports teams or clubs/activities, but I think for a small school, they excelled with what they're given. Overall, I think if you're new to the area and are considering different schools, the Houghton School District in my (slightly biased) opinion, is the best choice.
It's a high school that had wonderful faculty during my 4 years of learning. Anyone that needed help would get it, and everyone in the local area is super friendly and willing to assist others who need it more than they do. Every teacher at Houghton High is committed to teaching their students as much as they can about not just school subjects, but also general tips for life, and offer extra time and sessions to help kids improve their understanding of the subjects they're struggling with. Great school, beautiful area, 10/10 experience.
Houghton High School is a very well put together, functional school. The teachers are all kind and willing to put in extra time for their students to succeed. Students are provided with the necessary materials to learn effectively if that is what they choose to do. Houghton High School also provides a "small town" atmosphere, where students interact in a positive manner. Bullying is always addressed and never just swept under the carpet, the safety and well being of Houghton's students is clearly an important to all of the staff members. It's easy to see that Houghton's number one objective is to prepare their students for their bright futures that lie ahead.
