Houston High School Reviews

Houston high-school is a great school! The teachers are wonderful and seem to really care about the students. The academics are pretty good and there are many opportunities for academic greatness including school provided tutoring, contests in all subjects, and many more. Most sports are really good here. I play volleyball and the varsity has won 2nd in state many times. The only thing that I would change is how the school is dealing with Covid-19; although, It is more the states fault than individual schools. Houston high-school is struggling to update families about new measures needed to be taken. We are only going to school 2 days a week but most sports are still practicing everyday of the week, which doesn't really make since. Overall, Houston is a great school but needs to work on Covid-19 measures

For a public school, the education at Houston is top of the line. It's as a simple as that the test scores, the culture of the school, and the teachers are all phenomenal not only by Memphis and Tennessee public school standards but on a national level. While the campus itself is due for upgrades, these are in the planning stages and likely to come sooner than later. Overall, Houston is one of the finest schools in the Memphis area, both public and private, by any measure. Go Mustangs!
