My daughter transfered here from Memorial High School. She loves it here!! The students here are very friendly, and they have wonderful electives. The principles are very involved in every situation unlike Memorial. Memorial has very snobby people which make her feel left out and uncomfortable. Spring Woods is a much better place.

This school is adequate at best, but each year, it's getting worse. The main focus has come down to only graduating, rather than getting involved in many extracurriculars (ex. an Academic Decathlon or Model UN team does not exist at this school). Each year, the organizations seem as if they're all (except the Debate team) going down the drain. As a student, there are some WONDERFUL teachers at this school with amazing capabilities, but the contagious student mentality that is defined to do his/her minimal effort prevents it severely. The faculty hardly encourages the student to exceed expectations, which I've seen to be prevalent in a lot of other students I'm friends with at OTHER schools. The AP program is decent and prepares students adequately; however, there are a lot of AP classes I missed out on due to a lack of interest/resources. The academic (regular) classes are a joke where many students don't care at ALL. The administration is friendly; however, they don't work to fit the needs of the students who actually care. Overall, it's an okay school, but if you're looking for something that ll REALLY prepare your student for college and provide a challenge...this isn't it.

My son goes to this school. He enjoys his teacher and I think that it has great teachers.

SWHS is a great school. The teachers are friendly, intelligent and, for the most part, willing to help the students learn.

I believe that sports, band, plays, and other extracuriculars are a great way to keep children and teens from getting into trouble and a place for creative energy. I wish SWHS had more money and opporunities for these things. It is not a 'rich' school and there is definately room for improvement but I can appreciate it for what it is and for the opportunities it has given my child. Also, it is not a huge 5A school like in Katy and CY-Fair. That my be a good idea for some but I don't see the point of sending my children to 'Orange County' or anything like that.
