"All the schools in Katy ISD have the same problems. If you are in the AP classes you get too much homework, and the regular classes don't get enough homework. Most of the kids in the isd are not prepared for college, the system is more worried about ratings than educating the kids. I am around thousands of these kids everyday from every school in the district, and i am not impressed. No difference in the schools education, just in the neighborhood. I like Mayde Creek and Morton Ranch over all the other schools in the district."
"Decent. I mean I haven't been there in like 5 years. But I assume not much has changed. The original building is very much a relic from the 80s, apparent in the 20 year old lockers. The education is still pretty good quality, but it definitely lags behind the other schools in the district. The students, however, are not what I would call high achievers, as such anyone who puts in a decent effort will likely be in the top 10%."
"STAY AWAY, RUN!!! This is one of the most unorganized, inconsistent schools in the district! Stay off of the cheer squad it is a complete joke with a coach who is completely un-knowledge and very biased. The assistant principal for the senior class of 2013 is scattered brained and draws names out of a hat each day that she comes to work. Those are the students who must follow dress code and rules for that day , unless of course you are helping her out with something, and then you are an exception to the rule/ daily drawing. Counting down the day until graduation is very sad, but that is what we are doing! There are defiantly a handful of GREAT teachers here at this school. The student body is very diverse, overall a decent group of kids. More than I can say for the admin. They are just over shadowed by the extremely poor administration! The classes are over crowed in one class with over 30 kids and in the next have 18-20, (administration). My daughter had two English classes her senior year for 3 weeks. For three weeks I called every day! When Mr. Thompkins left, so did Mayde Creek High School."
"I graduated from MCHS in 2004, and am currently working on my Masters. I understand the school is much different now from when I attended, but there is much to be said about the quality of academics at MCHS. The math and arts (Graphic, Web, Photography, Intro, and Theatre) departments were my particular favorites, as I reaped so much from them. Many of my teachers had been on the MCHS staff for years, and their expertise and experience were evident in their students' educational outcomes. It wasn't the easiest of schools, nor was it horribly challenging. I value everything I gained from my time there."
"I am a current teacher at MCHS, and I love working at the Creek. No high school is perfect, but MCHS is far better than some of the campuses where I've worked previously. The students body is diverse, but these kids really are good kids. They are respectful and polite. The teachers and staff are good, for the most part. My chief complaint at the Creek would be regarding the disastrous scheduling issues that crop up year after year. There are teachers with over 35 students in a class one period and less than 20 the very next class period. This should not be an issue, but it seems to happen every year. It's not fair to the students or the teachers, and it's a problem that could be easily remedied if the right person was given the responsibility over it."
