    "This school is big yes, crowded yes, and most kids come from well off families. I would also have to agree that the students have given this school it marks, freshman teachers are the worst, but so far sophomore teachers seem better. Principle has no idea what's happening in his school for instance he has a health teacher that is late to class pretty much every single day, and then leaves early and skips classes, no one seems to care. Football rules any other sports take back seat to use of facilities, no one seems to care. This is not school specific but if your kids don't play the sport competitive team outside of school it's hard to make varsity sports in Texas. The downsize of such a competitive academic school is that the top 30% of this school sophomore class has 4.0 GPA or higher with a 4.2 u are in the bottom of the top 25%, which this is not a teacher given, the students work their tails off for it, hours of studying and homework every night. Best advice for parents if you want them to attend this school their freshman year, they need to take band, theatre, and participate in sports all through junior high. Everything is more competitive in Texas!"

    "Cultural diversity and positive challenging environment. Due to the nature of my job my family is used to relocate every 2~3yrs, so my kids have been in numerous schools around the world and this enables us to compare. This is definitely a GREAT school that despite its size and the size of its population they do an excellent job at start preparing kids for their next step in college. Isn't that what you look for in a high school anyway?"

    "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!"
