I attended Samuell from 10th grade till my Senior year. I have seen the school progress. The school doesn't have as many fights and the academics has improved a lot. There is a new principal and he is part of the reason the school is changing. He some times interact with students. He is focused on changing the school to being academically accepted and well rounded. There are a lot of new teachers there and many of them care about there jobs and their students. Although there are a couple who don't really care but that's at every school. The teachers devote lot of their time to the students. They do morning and after school tutoring, Saturday tutoring. The student teacher relationship is really good. Whenever you need something whether its advice or help with a project there are some teachers who will be there for you. Samuell offers a good amount of AP and Dual Credit class as well as many different clubs and sports. The counselors and the GO center staff are very helpful and the are there for you. They helped a lot of kids get into the college of their choice and scholarships. Samuell also offers Early college for incoming freshman.They also have an AVID program.
I love Samuell I went there 9th and 10th grade year and it improved from my first year and it has gotten better this year as well,JROTC was the best, my instructers always pushed us to be the best we can be LEAD FROM THE FRONT AND NOT FROM THE REAR HOOAH!!! GO SPARTANS
Since my freshman year in samuell to my senior year I am glad to say the school has improved. Go Spartans!!

I have a daughter in the 9th grade at Samuell and many things have improved since my two boys went there. Way to go Samuell High.
This school is awesome i recomended err'body go to it!! go spatans!!
I've been attending this school for the past 3 and a half years now and the improvement in the way the school works and functions has greatly improved. From dicsiplining the students to the overall enviroment of the school is way better than it once was, but the one thing that Samuell has always had was great teachers who really care about their students.
I believe that this school is awesome i went a half semester a year ago and i struggle my way thru but their teacher that help you thru it and wont let you down so see on the bright side you have teacher that care about your children and student so dont judge a book by their cover judge by the way you see it
I have had 2 Graduates from Samull The best teachers show much concerne about their students Greatness is there....Love it
I belive that our school is making a great efort in trying to improve.
This school has been rated unacceptable constantly and I see no change in the future. I feel that there is a lack of caring on the teachers and principle's part and the school should shut down permanently
This school is in transition from being a low-performing school to becoming academically acceptable. Although the athletic program is strong, the music, art, debate, and other extracurricular programs are being built. Although the talent is there, the participation is not plentiful. It is hard for teachers to do their job when they are dealing with discipline issues and repeating freshmen. Steps are being taken to clean the school up in terms of going to uniforms and offering more challenging coursework. However, many students who would be the cream of the crop choose to go to neighborhood Skyline or Townview Magnet. Also, the cream of the crop is spread thin because they are involved in everything. The teachers and administators are passionate about children learning, however, the resources, lack of parental involvement, and cultural clashing help perpetuate a negative image of the school.
Kids in high school should be learning the basic to get ready for college. The high school is the steping stone for knowledge. It's the beginging of learning new ideas. As a parent we hope that our kids are getting the best of the best. However, this school is not providing the right tools kids need. Kids are not getting ready for college. It's making it harder for those who really want to succed. Any parent that what to enrolled there kids to this school should evaluate their reason for it. Our kids are going to have enough problems growing up, and for us to place them in this situation should evaluate their reason. Who is to blame at this school is hard to tell it can be a combination of student/teachers or principal/teacher. But, parents are going to be blame if we enroll our kids at this school. think. act.
I just want to say this school needs a lot of improvement. My kids come to school to learn, not to listen to teachers talk a bunch of nonsense.
My four years spent a W.W. Samuell were great years. I find myself thinking back and missing Samuell and my friends and teachers. This school isn't one of Dallas's popular schools but it's a great school both inside and out. I am very blessed to be a graduate of W.W. Samuell and wouldn't trade it for anything else. -Class of 1998
I just graduated and Samuell is not a bad school it is just the knuckle head kids that cut up. We have great teachers who keep us in line
