I have gone to Houston High School for 3 years now and I have always been able to get good help from teachers! All clubs and other activities are very willing to work with each other and around your schedule to make sure you are able to be apart of everything you would like to be. Diversity is low, but that is partly because it is such a small school and town. One this that could be improved upon is to offer more AP and Dual Credit classes. Another improvement might be offer more college prep classes other than just English. Overall, for as small of a town as Houston is it is a pretty decent school and I have never had any major issues with any of the teachers or administration.

My High School has the most caring teachers and school board! I love the small town atmosphere and the fact everyone knows each other.
I like the school. And the teachers areally extremely nice. However, I am a transfer student from California and they won't give me all of the credits that I have earned making me credit deficit.
