The Woodlands High School is a fantastic place to go to school. We recently won the Lone Star Cup, meaning that we have superior academics and athletics. Almost all of the teachers here care a lot about what they are teaching and their students themselves. Although it is a big school with over 1,000 students in each class, there are still plenty of resources for everyone to be successful. Extracurricular activities are good here too. There are opportunities to get leadership roles with different clubs such as student council or a foreign language club etc. The point is, there are opportunities for every student to be successful and to also have fun while going to school here. Go Highlanders!

The Woodlands High School encourages its students to strive for excellence in athletics, academics, fine arts, and other fields. The majority of faculty members are willing to help students to improve their performance in class and on the field, court, art competition, etc. However, my brother has come home numerous times upset about his dyslexia. Teachers have neglected to provide accommodations for his learning disability and other students have been bullied into giving up their accommodations by fellow students. Accommodations are meant to give students with learning disabilities an even playing field. Despite those issues, TWHS is a very good school and can have a very supportive environment. The problems I mentioned earlier might also be due to the class itself. The majority of the class of 2019 seemed to be very supportive of their peers regardless of their differences.
The Woodlands High School is a very large school, which becomes its strength and weakness! Everything from sports to academics is competitive; there is a culture of striving to be that best at whatever you do. With as many students as there are, there is a club or social group for everyone.
The staff and teachers really care about your success and will take the time to go the extra mile to make sure the student has every opportunity available to excel. They give everyone high expectations and teach you to work hard; going to TWHS prepared me well for college. The staff also care greatly about safety. I always felt that the campus was secure and those enforcing the security genuinely cared about it too.
However, because of the size of the school, students often felt insignificant is they weren’t the best at what they did, but if they didn’t let it bring them down it pushed them to become better.
