Houston High School is like no other public school around. Year after year we excel in not just athletics but academics as well. I can owe all of my success to Houston because it has taught me to work hard for what I want and to never take anything for granted. As a junior, I have started to plan for my future which makes me cherish my few memories left in high school. At this unique public school I always feel safe and that my teachers, administration, and fellow students always have my best interest at heart. Go Mustangs!

I really enjoy Houston. It includes fun opportunities every day that make going to school actually enjoyable. The teachers make efforts to create relationships with students and show they care about our grades. If I were to change one thing, I would change how the administration acts. They are very stand-offish so it is hard to form relationships with them or go to them for problems. Nonetheless, the curriculum is amazing and I am truly challenged academically every day. My grades, work ethic, study habits, and test taking has improved tremendously since I started at Houston.
Houston High School has an exceptional atmosphere for its students. With a combination of outstanding academics and teachers, Houston High School prepares students for college. Everyone is friendly and extremely helpful, especially when you are new to town. It has been an absolutely pleasant experience attending this high school.
