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 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.
The overall experience here is great. TWHS is a VERY academically competitive school and is very challenging (depending on the classes you choose of course). We have won national titles in numerous sports and our band consistently places in the top 10 in the nation. While our school lacks somewhat in diversity, the overall climate is very accepting of minorities and different religions. The only thing I would say is below average here is the food. It’s pretty nasty. Anyhow, school facilities are great and upkept well. Overall, I’m very proud to be a Woodlands Highlander!
