My overall experience with Sharpstown high school was both good and bad. Good, because I've gotten close with teachers and learned a lot academically wise. And bad, because of the negative, inappropriate students which some partaking in bullying, speaking from experience. Sharpstown is an amazing school for academics, club organizations and sports but needs help in the fields of socializing and school spirit the most.
My experience at Sharpstown highschool was the greatest of any school I’ve been to. I had support from counselors, teachers and even the principle himself. And the most helpful part of Sharpstown was the CCC. The CCC or the College and Career Center is what help prepare me for my journey the most in highschool. I am a very proud graduate of Sharpstown!
