Worthing High School Reviews

My experience at Worthing was great in many ways. The teachers are great and they show that they really care for us. The sports program’s spirit is above average and has potential. But there’s many changes need for our sports program. There’s not much diversity because the school is located in an area that houses mainly minorities, but at least we get the opportunity to learn about different cultures with the little diversity we have. We also have an excellent principal who turned a low tier school around and improved it in various ways. If I could go back in time, I’d most likely continue to be a Colt because my school built me into the young man I am today.

Its not one of the best schools I've been to. Attending Worthing doesn't bring too many exciting experiences and the overall academics meets the minimum expectations. The school could use some improvements such as teachers, disciplinary action, and offer more opportunity for student body.
I like how they make sure that you are ready to take the next step into education after high school. The staff is always friendly to make sure that your are doing good in all of your classes and ask constantly about questions that you might have. Alot has changed through the recent years to make sure that Worthing is a good preparation for college. Students have also recently have gotten more serious about school now that the staff has gotten idea of how teens usually act. Worthing is located in the southside of Houston, maybe not the prettiest place but the school atmosphere feels as if you were in a big family reunion. I am proud to call worthing my high school and they are the ones that paved my way towards college.
