South Houston High School, a public high school located in South Houston, Texas in the United States. The school is a part of the Pasadena Independent School District. I have been there for 3 years and the fine arts program is amazing, one of the best in the district. I am also in the early college program and it is outstanding, I highly recommend if you can apply, do it! It's worth it!

Overall great school! A lot of school spirit and extra curricular activities are amazing. Most teachers care about the students and others don't, but honestly they have some of the most amazing teachers!
I love the teachers so much, they are so committed to their students. They truly do love the students. They really have a true relationship with the students. I for one can go up to any teacher and have a genuine conversation. They help so much and are honestly underrated, they deserve so much more respect than they receive. Teachers at South Houston high school need more recognition, they keep the school together, they are hard working individuals who give every thing for their students. Teachers want their students to succeed and go to college and get a job, and have a career for themselves. The teachers at South Houston high School are the thing keeping the students from failing.
