    "This school (SLHS) is the most stuck up, snobby, close minded school I have ever attended. The kids are bullies, insecure, and so unaccepting to anyone who isn't like they are. I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone. They will flat out lie to you to think that you are going in to a great, fun, accepting school, then after a while, you will see how "nice" the kids are. The teachers will do practically anything to make sure you get an A. Obviously because it's kA+y isd... This place is horrible. Everyone acts like they are better than everyone else while being so insecure that they have to dress the same. They have 4 lunches starting at 10:48 and the last lunch ends at 12:43 because of the almost 4,000 kids that go there. Don't plan on driving to school either there is a waiting list, even for seniors who have priority over everyone. Don't go here... The only reason I gave it a star is because you have to."

    "These school grounds are probably the best you will ever find anywhere in a public school. At a cot to tax payers of more than $70Million, I am sure you can imagine, there is nothing more you can ask for from a building. Only if buildings made for good schools. Well it doesn't. Evidently standard tests and an inordinate amount of homework does. this place is just plane cold, and yes student writers, I have read your comments, and I understand what you mean. Even as a parent I am given the brush off on many occasions, I can only imagine how my son feels. Now let me say this. If your child is a self starter...motivated, and just gets it with all of their classes, where studying is just second nature, and passing tests is a breeze, then this is the school for you and your child. I have one of those too...and he does well. I also thoguh have a very creative, free thinker, who struggles, and finds studying a chore...for this son, I have to bolster the curriculum with tutors, encouragement, and just plane roll up your sleeves parenting. This school is not cut out for this type of student...it is a factory, and run a foul od the cookie cutter student, and you will be run over!"

    "Although the School is still overcrowded by the rapid development of the Katy area (even with Tompkins HS already open), the school is academically excellent, and challenge its students to look for the best learning experience. I'm very happy that my son (already in his senior year) is part of SLHS. His academic preparation and hard work earn him access to be invited to the best Universities/colleges nationwide, and also to receive letters for merit scholarships. SLHS is really engaged in preparing the students to be easily admitted on almost any college, and even with only 8 years since opened; it already earned a well deserved fame among top colleges due the excellent academic preparation of its students. So for those people that don t pursue this goal, SLHS could be hard academically, sure, but as a parent, I can t see any better place to prepare students for university live."

    "First off, the only reason that this school deserves 2 stars is because of the incredible openness/acceptance and community spirit- On part of the students. You find people from around the world, literally from everywhere, and this enables students to be open-minded and culturally educated. But as a school, SLHS is simply awful. They try to portray themselves as an "award winning", "academically excellent" environment but it is hyper-competitive and negative. In reality, it is simply a badly-run, poorly-designed, school with tons of money and really smart students (not due to the school). Impossible to make friends because of the huge size. Uninterested/unmotivated teaching staff, and over-the-top emphasis on standardized testing and constant studying. 99% of students come from the upper-middle class, 175k + income bracket, highly educated parents, and this is what defines the school, not Katy ISD. Sure, it looks good on paper but you have to dig deep to see the true ugly underneath."

    "I moved to the Katy area in the middle of my freshman year, i am now a junior. it was hard to adjust academically. i moved from NY where the passing grade was a 65 or above and here at Seven lakes it is 70 or above which i think is outrageous. The mandatory classes they make you take here do not match up with other states. when i came in the end of November i was put into World History which is a sophomore class. it was also Pre-AP and they refused to let me switch out because I came after the first 6 weeks. Another thing, i had missed almost a month of school and even at the academic levels, the curriculum moves a a very fast pace. The fall semester finals were just a mere 3 weeks a way when i moved here and i was expected to take all of them and know the material like the back of my hand. I went to every single tutorial but beyond that it was in my hands. i studied every night but on top of learning new material in class and the old material it was next to impossible. However aside from the extremely high competitive academics, the student body is very nice and diverse. the only problem is people are very judgmental. i had to make myself presentable in order to make friends."
