'What you've heard about Houston Hill Junior High School...put that all away.' ---Houston Hill isn't really such a bad school, it's just the kids who make hard for the faculty and staff. This is going to be my 3rd year attending at this school, to let you know. Sure it still needs to improve, but don't let that stop you from going or not letting your child go there. It is just like any school, with both education/sports. To tell the truth, My mom and I was scared as well when I found out I had to go there for 7th. But after a while, I came to realize it's not as scary as it would be. The teachers are nice/educated, the new principal [2nd year there..] is strict as well as soft, and the faculty/staff are willing to help. Please, contact me for more info: RamonaBertuso@yahoo.com

This is a small school serving a mostly lower-income community, and with the problems that implies. That said, the school is well-run, clean, orderly, and safe, and most of the teachers seem qualified and caring. The student-teacher ratio is lower than average for public schools, which is a plus. I note the negative reviews from several years ago but have not seen those problems this year. The current school uniform policy has probably eliminated some of the complaints cited. The school has also made improvements in test scores and other benchmarks. It remains, however, one school in an underfunded school system. So there is an uphill climb. Nonetheless, this seems to be one of the better non-magnet public junior high schools in the city.
