Sam Houston has the potential to be a great school. The problem I've run into is the principal, some teachers and office staff seem to be prejudice against the africian-american students/parents. It's a great school if your part of the hispanic race. Thanks.

Excellent school with great and compassionate teachers. Most of my nieces assisted to Sam Houston. And I had been in contact with a very caring staff that most of the times went out of their way to help us. Yes! is a very old building(100 yrs) but the difference is Sam Houston kids and their staff.

This is quite a good school, with great teachers. Even the building is bit old from outside, but it's still quite well maintained inside. Overall, I am happy to have my son schooling here
