    "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."

    "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!"
