Houston Christian has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. It has personally impacted me academically, culturally, and spiritually. HC has offered me an opportunity to grow and be challenged in all aspects of my life. High school shapes one's character and HC has made me the best person I have ever been. Struggling with my worth and purpose in life, HC has put light on my talents and has made me feel confident academically and spiritually through my values. I have never been more blessed and happy about where I am today. Go mustangs!

Houston Christian has a group of exceptional teachers and great facilities, but that does not cancel out all of the negatives.

The school is very conservatively biased. I had one bible teacher give me a low grade on an opinion paper because he "disagreed with my stance on the thesis". Not to mention that HC enforces a very narrow-minded view of Christianity through curriculum and its selection of chapel speakers. These administrative decisions created an environment of students who were unable to listen or accept differing opinions–especially opinions of liberal value. Several liberal students (including myself) were shunned and bullied by our peers and teachers (through class discussion) because of our beliefs. We repeatedly complained to the administration about this, and each time we were ignored.
My three teenagers flourished in this warm and caring Christian environment. Their rigorous academic program complemented by a plethora of co-curricular activities prepared them well for life. In particular, the leadership program on campus at the George and Barbara Bush Center for Scholars and Leaders sets these students apart from their peers!
