    "Being military and when we first were looking where to move in this area, I liked this school looked the best of the many we saw. The other high school, Clemens, was at a 7 with Steele at an 8. This is not solely what helped our decision, but we liked the area, so Steele was our zoned school. It has been a real eye opener. First, a coach who said try outs were for two weeks, didn't pay attention to most of the girls, and then decided after one week. Here, I say no integrity. Next, a dance teacher who was supposed to be in charge of a team didn't show up a lot of the time. The students were left to work things out and there were sometimes disputes. I am glad things didn't get too out of control and no one got hurt. To this, no accountability. I had to go in to discuss the fact that my child could not hear the teacher because there was always so much talking around her. The counselor's suggestion was to change her to a different class. Hmm. I think this school exudes the positive, but I can't pinpoint what makes it that way. Needless to say, we are disappointed with this school. If it didn't mean another new school, we'd change. HS is hard enough. Our expectations were too high."

    "As an active duty member, I have had my children enrolled in many schools throughout the US. Steele is by far one of the best ones! Teachers, Extra curricular activities, classes offered, availability of staff, school guide lines, school equipment, bus routes and wear of clothes are all excellent in my opinion. They have students available to assist new students transitioning from other schools during the school year (S2S program) Teachers actually communicate with the parents if needed, and they have provided after school help for catching up. Football IS a big deal, and a lot of attention is given to it, however, I dont feel it has taken away from my childrens education here, if anything, it has provided my kids a huge sense of pride in their school. They are slightly over crowded right now, but I believe the huge amount of homes that are being built in the area have a lot to do with it, and I believe they will be re-zoning soon."

    "This is the best school in the area! As a military member for 19+ years, I actually have commuted from Lackland for the last 3 years just so my kids could stay in this district (after Barbara Jordan which was also great). Sports program is very competitive which is why some parents have rated lower that deserved. Football team has been to two state Div 5A Championship Games (Won 1) in the last two years and is ranked in the top 10 again this year. Girls programs are very good also which is why I want my kids here (competing against the best everyday in practice only makes you better). Almost every teacher I've met has been great and active both in the classroom and online when necessary by posting classwork to make learning a 24/7 envrironment. Go Knights!"

    "Although I was initially concerned with Steele's capacity to provide quality education to such a large student population, I can honestly say that the staff and the positive structure exceeded expectations of any high school. When most parents describe things that are aspects of teacher/staff professionality in any educational institution, they often use words like commitment, motivate, lead by example, inspire, collaborative teamwork, goal-oriented/task-focused, positive attitude, provides constructive feedback, takes pride in what they do, etc. From my limited experience with Steele HS (my son was an out-of-state transfer for his senior year), I can honestly say that I appreciate the professionality of his teachers, academic counselor (Mr. Rodriguez), and others. Despite their busy schedules, they always found a moment to address my son's concerns (even in passing in hallways), encouraged him to ask clarifying questions (i.e., never made him feel stupid for asking a question), and demonstrated positive attitudes."

    "I went to Steele when it first opened. i loved it. The school has grown a lot since then and i the kids now have the opportunity to take really cool classes like Business Law and other career specialty classes that weren't offered when i was a student. The teachers for the most part are involved and caring in a way i didn't experience at my other high school. My sister is starting there in the fall and i am very excited to have her attending such a wonderful school that has so much to offer."
