I absolutely love my school! it has a great environment for encouraging academic excellence. I enjoy the clubs at the school, and we have a very strong school spirit! The MCJROTC program is very strong, even though it's small. We are a fairly new school, and I believe we can only go uphill from here in terms of excellence, which is what Tomball schools strive for. The Choir program is also excellent, we have a marvelous director who encourages great character and excellence in our musical abilities, and all the teachers I have had over the years have been encouraging and kind, even the ones who were harsh sometimes. It was all for the benefit of my education and more importantly, character. Thank you, Tomball Memorial.

Academically, this school looks to perform well and most AP and some DC teachers seem qualified and more competent than most other schools I have heard. The environment is quite competitive, as the AP classes encompass very rigorous courses and a lot more homework heavy than other schools around that I know. This school does not deal with bullying or students with mental health issues very well. They tend to try to hush it down and try to deal with the problem quickly and quietly. I have known students who have had to just leave the school because they would not properly deal with the bullying that she faced. However a new principal has come along that seems to be trying to fix the problem of mental health. They also tend to overlook academics and the arts. Instead, they tend to focus more on football/sports. For such a small school, that is steadily growing, they do offer a wide selection of different courses to choose from.
I've spent four years in this highschool and have had very few issues. Yes, I've struggled with classes but the AP classes within this school occur with immense amounts of rigor. From WHAP all the way through AP Lit you will be up late at night wondering why you did this to yourself, or why you couldn't just go to some school in Cy-Fair and get an easy A. But once you see those 5's on your AP exams you'll know the struggle was worth it. The school is well funded allocating plenty of resources to both the fine-arts and athletic departments. The school has a strong UIL team in both the mathematics department, Science Olympiad, and current events. All of the fine arts departments have earned mass amounts of regional, state, and national awards. The school also offers a Symphony Orchestra for those in the upper levels of Band and Orchestra.
