    "Very guilty of prioritizing the wrong things. Grades are more important than physical or mental health, and football and band are more important than grades. I always got the impression that coming to school sick was preferable to gaining one horrific absence. This school may be better than some other public schools in the state, but coming from private school, it was appalling. Diversity is hugely lacking and, by extension, the general populus is mostly judgemental and unaccomodating. Students who rely on more than just luck to choose the appropriate "your/you're" are few and far between, and signs/posters put up in the hallways by students have major grammar and spelling errors. Obviously the education quality cannot fully make up for the social and administrative failings. At the very least, if they won't treat the student like an adult human being, they should provide an adequate education, but even that appears to be too difficult. Overall, not great, by any means."

    "I noticed that the class sizes are a little larger than the state average (very surprising). However, the district's students are more well behaved and more acdemically focused than most of the schools in Texas. We moved here because of the exemplary rating and state standing for academics."

    "I love this school and this district. I feel like, because of the great quality of teachers and student around me, I know where I'm going with my life. I am a freshman at this high school and this year has been great. In 6th grade I was recognized as a "Gifted and Talented" english student and the class for us is terrific. The swim team has an amazing coach and we work as a team, not just as individuals. Some of the teachers are not up to par, however, and if your child doesn't think they'll do well in that class because of them, I would urge them to switch out of the class. Whether your child concentrates on sports, needs help passing classes, or can only think outside of the box, I sincerely believe this is the school for you."

    "The staff is friendly. The teachers seem to be dedicated to doing the best that they can despite the large class sizes. The school board is excellent. The excellent band program resulted in state championship for marching bands. Parent involvement is very high for a public school."
