Seven Lakes High School Reviews

I like how strong Seven Lakes pushes academics to the point that it thourougly generates strong students, however this also imposed several negative consequences. The demand for such excellence amongst grades and other academic achievements ushered in a heavy influence of cheating and academic dishonesty. The stressful environment of Seven Lakes was a breeding ground for depression, anxiety, and other mental issues due to the competitiveness. I believe that decreasing the stress on the students by reducing homework amounts, easing up on assessments, and even promoting more non-school related activities would greatly benefit the students at the school. Seven Lakes should place a greater emphasis on other events at the school such as the sports teams, fine arts programs, dance, cheer, etc.

Seven Lakes High School is known as one of Houston metropolitan area's finest and most diverse schools. It is highly competitive and produces successful, college-ready scholars. The teaching directory comprises of mediocre to highly qualified professionals. The administration has been supportive of the schools many successful programs, especially in the visual and fine arts and academics, but recently, with a change in higher-ups, there is more support for athletics and diminishing support and funding for already established programs. The STEM classes and the AP program are highly prestigious, consisting of rigorous curriculums. There is a multitude of extracurriculars and clubs that have received national recognition. Overall, Seven Lakes is an excellent and prospering high school.
As a new graduate of Seven Lakes High School, I can officially reflect on my experience there and give it a very high rating. Seven Lakes takes college readiness to a new level with fast-paced curricula, a plethora of STEM classes and clubs, award-winning extracurriculars, a diverse student body, and excellent counselors to provide assistance every step of the way.
Academics are very competitive at Seven Lakes. Keeping up with all the homework can definitely be difficult at times, but staff at Seven Lakes truly go the extra mile to ensure that you're on the right path academically. Counselors take immediate notice and provide thorough help when a student is falling behind.
The only area I would say is average at Seven Lakes is the cafeteria food, which is like any other high school. The downsides are minor and can easily be overlooked. Overall, I would rate Seven Lakes a 4.5 for being diverse, friendly, highly competitive and an excellent college prep school.
