My son started going here in 2012, at first i was not impressed with the school at all. The school looked very out of shape and worn, along with children that behaved like juveniles. Over the years, I found the school was working for the better to improve the school. You can tell by how the the students were acting and how drastically the demographics were changing. This year, attending a meet the teachers event, I was really impressed and to find that the school was going to be rebuild. In a couple of years this school might actually be worth enrolling your kid in!

Lee is considered a drop out factory. Poverty stricken kids that struggle just to get by. It's a sad epidemic in HISD.

This 5 star rating system can not adequately reflect what Lee HS is. There is no other public high school school with a population like Lee anywhere in Texas and probably any state in the South.Lee doesn't fit under the good school/bad school dichotomy rather it just is. Recent immigrant/Refugee kids come in and out like a revolving door and the teachers do to. There's no better place for a student to be if he/she does not speak English as the curriciulum is geared to this population as well as teacher training. They are accepted with open arms and are taught by dedicated teachers who are there because they want to be there. On the otherhand if the student does not fit these categories Lee should not be your best choice although many students get the education they need to succeed in higher education.There should be some book or documentary made on Lee as it's transformation from what it was in its first 30 yrs. of existance is the diametric opposite of its soul now.

I am a concerned parent. I am constantly trying to figure out what they are doing. When my child is pulled out of class to do tutoring; she was counted absent in the class periods she missed and did not get credit for those classes. My child has classes with teachers that are not willing to understand how a child learns. It becomes "you will learn it my way or you will be written up for insubordination" REALLY? What kind of teacher are you?

Lee high school has a lot to offer, the problem still is the lack of discipline in this school. I have to say this is by far one of the better school I've been to. There are teacher there willing to push their student to their potential and challenge them, even tourer and help their student out. The Teacher are an absolute amazing, but it's the student... I have to say about 30% - 40% of their student are serous with their academic. This school offer lots of program for the student to take advantage of for example like an collage counsel, AP, Pre-Ap, Tutor, and many other program for the student to look into. I loved my teachers Mrs. Simmon ( an absolute darling), Mrs. Luckett (whom is strict but in a good way), Mrs. Phillip (whom is funny and cool), Mr. Healie ( An art teacher who is so awesome), Mr. Selivia (a very cool and strict personality), Mr. Johnston (who is always helping you get into college), and many other teacher who interactive with their student.... I love the teachers and my AP class mate and friends..... The teacher is by far the best in this school, it's just a majority of the student in this school is not determine to learn.

Has a former Lee High School Student I believe Lee High has a lot to offer. The school has had a really turn around with the small learning communities. I know that if we had the small learning communities wen I was in school I would have definitely change my career goals, because I would have had a better idea of what I wanted to major in. With the small learning communities I believe that Lee is definitely making students college bound. The principal is a real people person, he listens to the students, and I saw him go out of his way to help a lot of them and be their advocate.

Lee is a very safe school. At other schoools, when something bad happens, it is pushed underneath the rug. At Lee, if there is an incident, the involved students are repremanded. There are no exceptions.

This is by far one of the worst schools ever! It has been on probation for the past five years with no signs of improvement. I think officials are considering shutting it down. I went to talk to my sister's teachers to ask about her academics; she is failing all grades. The staff is very rude and they ignored me the whole time. The students are all roaming the halls and making out behind the buildings. There is no discipline of any kind. The curriculums are laughable, not even challenging. Don't ever consider this school for any of your children! You can contact me for more appaling details; anything to keep other kids from ending up at this horrid place! Help yourself and your children by going elsewhere for their education, please!

If any of you have seen the movie 'Stand and Deliver,' that is Lee High School. The students come unprepared and no one believes that they can succeed. However, with the help of the greatest and most devoted teachers around, they do. Kids that never had a chance to go to college are able to. This is a great place.

I currently go to Lee High school and my expectations were very high. but after i moved to houston and my first day here was terrible. now after the end of the 1st semester, i'm ok. but the school system and academic is fair. they have no orchestra program/class, no athletics period, and they need reconstruction. (destruct and rebuild)

My brother attends Lee HS as a freshman. He is part of the Media Technology small learning community. You see, Lee HS is divided into ten small learning communities. The idea is to divide a great mass of students into smaller units and classes. Students get to know one another and bonds with their teachers. The learning communities are also theme oriented. For example, a students interested in Health sciences and careers in that area will probably join the Health and Human resouces community. Where as, a student inerested in Technology and new media will most likely attend the Media Technology community. My brother takes all his core subjects in the community. But, he also takes classes in new media areas in the community. Hopefully, he will graduate with a solid background in graphic design and computer science skills.

Lee is unlike many high school in the houston area. It has gone through many changes and its improvement is seen when you compare it to how it use to be 4 years ago. It was one of the first school to start the Small Learning Communities Program and it has been successfull because now other schools are doing it too. From personal experience, this school has more than education to learn for any student that goes there.
