I think that all of the people who say this is a great school must work there. I have children at this school, they are picked on, ridiculed, and made fun of by staff at this school, I wish that I could afford to move back home to Florida, schools there are great.
Why is there no PTO (parent, teacher organization)? If such an organization were to exist, maybe more parents would take interest in their children's education and not wait until the child is failing. Although I don't have a problem with tenure in general, I do think that in order to be able to retain it, a teacher must meet certain requirements. For example, to treat students like humans and not talk to them like they are dogs, also, actually to have a calling to be teacher would be a plus.
I used to go to Houston Coutny. I graduated a few years back. It saddens me though to read some of these comments that other students have posted. When trying to convince someone that a particular school is a good one and you can't type, spell, or speak proper english it doesn't help your case. I will say when I was there, several teachers did not supervise well. This, sadly, made it a lot harder for the ones that did. However the ones that did supervise did it well. I also agree with there not being enough parental involvement. That is also very sad to me. There were a lot of rude students when I went there, and respect to others and especially adults is something that should be learned at home. Overall though, I am very glad I went to Houston County. It is a nice school in great community.
HCHS is overall a G`R`E`A`T School. I have two kids attending(11th and 12th grade). I am pleased to have chosen this school for my kids. The students seem to get along well with each other and they are supportive to each. That's a plus! My children are very active in extracurricular activities and their grades are excellent!! They have caring staff and my hats are off to you!! Thanks for a job well done!!
I think our school sets a good example for our student body and the teaching staff is great!
I think this is a great school and it has gotten better in the last few years. There are a few teachers who don't supervise the students, and there are a lot of parents who allow their children to break rules and get mad if the kid is punished, but overall, this is a good school. It's small, clean, and most everybody is friendly. I would recommend sending your children to HCHS.
Houston County High School is a good school. My children(8th and 11th grade)enjoy the friendly atmosphere of a small school. We moved to the area from a much larger town and we felt like we never fit in. Parental involvement is a problem at Houston County High School, just like in most high schools. It would be great to see parents get more involved in their childrens activities.
Hchs is a great school. Eveyone is friends and if there is an arguement, it is solved shortly after.All the other school don't have what we have.We have school spirit and lots of love for our school. My friends that came from other schools said they wish they came to hchs along time ago. 09.
Hchs is a great school. It's awesome that we have such a small school, that way, everyone knows everyone. I wonder what parent said that the 7th graders shouldn't in p.E. With older students? Thats crazy! the whole reason the 7th graders are there is to make sure they're comfortable with the school before they have to start with credits and stuff (and trust me, its not as stressful if you're use to the school and the enviornment). I love hchs and i wouldn't ever change schools! gooooo lions! **april** seniors 2007 rule!
Houston County is an awesome school!The only thing I dont like is the new dress code there making they dont but our clothes so they dont need to make us tuck in shirts and all the stuff their doing. And I believe that boys and gurls should have p.e. together. And whoever said that about 7th graders should not have p.e. with older kids, ITS HIGH SCHOOL! Its gonna be like that if you dont like it take them to a different school.Thats my opion. I go to HCHS!
Houston County High School is a pretty good school, however the children are not monitored enough during PE. Also, the seventh graders share PE with some ninth graders, this is not a good idea because seventh graders are very impressionable and do not need the extra peer pressure. If the PE teachers would pay more attention I would rate Houston County High School very favorable.
