    "This is an outstanding school. I have to laugh at the whiners on here who complain about it being too competitive or the students being stuck up. We moved here during my son's sophomore year and he made friends very quickly (and we are far from rich). He is a B average, academic level student who for the most part, has really liked his teachers. Over the last two years he has gotten involved in a number of extracurricular organizations and made many great HS memories. The people complaining on this site would probably complain no matter where they attended."

    "This school is good preparation for college and the work place. It offers a variety of classes and elective options. The music programs are EXCELLENT. While some may feel it is too competitive, I would argue the kids learn they are not entitled to any free passes. I would agree there is a big disparity between the accelerated and regular academic classes, no one can argue that an "average student" should be able to make good grades in the latter classes. My oldest child is graduating from Seven Lakes in two weeks and my second oldest child will be graduating this coming year. While no school is perfect, if you are looking for a high school in Katy, TX it is the best."

    "I feel compelled to let other people know that this school is not all it's cracked up to be! I was aware prior to enrolling my son that the school was competitive. That's fine, for those that want that. However, for those kids who are just "regular", this school doesn't have a place for them. Really. Everything, and I mean everything is a competition. From buying a parking pass, to volunteering, to actually hoping to try a sport or extracurricular. If you aren't already great at it, forget it! It has not been a good school experience for us! It should not be ranked 9 out of 10. Maybe at one point it was a "great" school, but it has lost its way and needs to have a wake up call! Seven Lakes needs to remember that they are a HS, not a college. They are a school for all kids, not just super bright, super talented, super athletic ones. We are counting down the days until summer!"

    "So it's my first day at seven lakes and I walk in thinking everyone's nice and this school will be great. That's what they told me so I believe them. Well I really wish I took back that thought right after 1st period. After a while I started to notice that you have to either be a something to be noticed in this school. In this school you have to be in a sport, club, or have outstanding academic achievements to be considered a somebody. If your not like someone else your invisible to EVERYONE including the teachers. Not to mention there are so many kids in one class room the teachers have barely anytime for one on one with a student. Everyone in this school is rich and snobby and it's so annoying. So if your thinking of bringing your kid here, good luck."

    "School Building/Facilities: Awful, jail like with no windows, and 4000 students crammed into a quarter mile area. Teachers: Uncommitted and bored due to the over-emphasis on "teaching to the test" Students: Extremely diverse and multi-cultural, very globally aware with students from every corner of the world Demographics: >95 % above the $150k family income bracket, but little elitism to be found Acheivement: Statistics show that SLHS has incredible academic acheivement in the state of Texas, and decent athletic as well Overall: It is a school where the ratings and adornments have little to do with the actual atmosphere. The reality is that this school is hyper-competitive, and too much emphasis is placed on standardized testing. What makes it amazing, however, is the incredible community spirit and student acceptance- It is the highly educated backgrounds from which they come that defines their success, not the inefficient administration of Katy ISD."
