Houston High School might not appeal to many because of the size, but that what made it special to me. Whenever you need anything there wasn't a teacher or student that wouldn't help. The school has many activities to get the students involved within the school and/or community. Overall Houston High School, the teachers, my peers, and the organization I was in have gave me an good jumpstart for the "real world".

My experience at Houston High School has been okay so far. It just happened to be a small school that offers a small amount of things for students to do. However, the teachers and staff are friendly and are open to helping students that are in need of their services. They offer organizations such as Beta club, Anchor club, Archery, FFA, Solar Car, DECA, HOSA, French Honor society, Band, Choir, and FCA. I am in a some of these organizations and as a student we tend to become very involved in activities the school sponsors. I have made many friends at this school and hope to make more through the involvement that I am in throughout my last school year.
I love the way the teachers wants to help you learn. There's a lot of students within the school who always says they're going to drop out, but the teachers aren't having that. We learn on a higher education. Within some classes, we seem to go outside the box and explore more.
