Ever since the opening of Atascocita HS a few years ago, it appears as though Humble High is now the inferior school. I would like to say that is not so. I know for a fact that Humble High School is still well respected by many and has produced great members of our society. Has it had its share of problems? Of course it has. Have they been highly publicized? Of course they have simply because this is the school that bears the name of the city as well as the school district. But I believe that with the major renovation of the school, and Principal Charles Ned now in charge, HHS is coming back! The athletics at the school have always been superb, and there are still great, passionate, intelligent teachers and administrators guiding the students there. It's a very diverse place to be and you will learn a lot.

My son is currently in the International Baccalaureate Program that Humble High School offers. It is an incredible college preparatory program and he has outstanding teachers who offer a wonderful and caring learning environment.

Humble High has changed a lot in the last two years, even though during the construction phase it was known to be one of the worst schools, now it is starting to be recognized again. I currently attend there as a junior, and i have to say that now after the construction is almost over, it is a great school. Lots of extracurricular programs, and great support from teachers and principals. Humble has been known for having one of the best sports programs, coaches and trainers make everyone feel part of a team. Great school spirit also. If you are considering about sending your kids here, forget about all the reviews before 2006,(thats when Atascocita High's kids were packed in our school), after 2006, it seriously became a new school. Great teachers also, most with over 10 years of experience.

I rate Humble High School a 4 for the recent months there is a new principal, I feel that the discipline, safety and overall leadership is about to turn around I've seen this man bring a differenceto tThe Humble Scool District in a whole. We need change, the extracurricular activities have changed since last year I see the leadership in these areas are lacking.

A great school with diversity and active student participation. It was not until I moved to the DC area that I saw what my children (When I have them) will be missing by not attending schools like Humble. I still remember most of my teachers, which is a miracle, because I hardly remember my college professors. Humble, although the test scores will not show it, is a great school to learn about anything you can imagine.

Humble is a very diverse school in its makeup. Parents, students and teachers need to refocus on the academics, master that then worry about the rest.

Humble High has an excellent reputation for the vigor of its academic porgrams, but most notably its Fine Arts programs. Humble High has a nationaly renowned Wind Ensemble, the Humble High School Wind Symphony. The first band is not only nationally renowed but the second band has seen more then enough consecutive sweepstakes in its possesion. Not only does the band program offer a great background, choir and orchestra are also greatly accomplished. Overall the Fine Arts programs are unbeleivably great. Directors from the University of Texas and the University of Houston always come out to clinician the great ensembles in the Humble High School Band program, not only to get paid but to say that they had the honor to work with such great young musicians. Along with the great Fine Arts it also has a great vigor in academics.

It is a school in transition. The principal only focuses on the bad students and the associate principal usually lives in a dream world with his theorical viewpoints. It used to be an excellent school but nowadays, teachers are lucky to get through a fourth of their lesson plans. Its too bad so many good teachers are leaving.

Not enought Kids leadership development opportunities. To many kids for one teacher. Very poor encouragement from teachers to kids to go to college Vs other schools in the same district.

Humble High School has some really awesome students at it! However, The students are not allowed to stray from the sidewalk at this school due to the gang and 'bad' students...therefore they are all are punished. Instead of being treated like young adults they are all treated like criminals. They have this sweep program between classes that sweeps in any student that might be running to class late. They are giving them Saturday classes instead of a mere tardy. That's sad. The splitting the school this Fall is really going to present some hardships for Humble and the new campus Atascocita HS. The classes of 2007-09 will have very little developed sports programs due to the division of the students. However the opening of a new HS is necessary, I feel for the students of 2007-09 will be deprived of the full HS experience. Parents are somewhat involved.

The Academic programs first of all are some of the best in the area they include dual credit classes and always have Advanced Placement, eventhough your child might choose level classes, the level classes run on honors curriculum and always push children to reach their potential. The fine arts program at Humble High is one of the best in the nation including a national recognized Humble High School Wind Syphony, there are also many traditions of excellence including consecutive UIL ratings of 1s and bringing home many sweepstakes. Sports at Humble High School are very prestigious and always are on the wining side. The co-ed varsity cheerleaders are also ranked 2nd in the nation. At Nationals the Wildcatdets ranked 2nd also. Parent involvement is very high at a school of such respect and distinguished character. Humble High School, the school for your child and their future just as i sent mine!

One of the largest high schools in the state of Texas. Numerous choices of extracurricular activities. Could be greatly improved with more parental involvement. Current movement to improve safety on campus--results remain to be seen.

Humble High School is known for it's quality music programs. The Humble Military Marching Band provided great opportunites for advancement in the program and made it easy to build great friendships. Though I no longer play an instrument, I am still able to apply lessons I learned in band to everyday life.

I would never recomend this school. If you can afford it move to Kingwood and go to those schools. Kingwood High was accredited by the US department of education for excelence. Humble High needs a huge overhaul.

This school is very unorganized and full of nothing. I would transfer out but this is mylast year. The teachers give us projects all in one week and most of them is due on the same day. The teachers don't even give us the supplies to do it the parents have to pay money to get the project done. I'm so happy this is my last year. But some teachers are excellent teachers, but doing exciting things get the students pumped up and what to learn. Now take that from a students prospective.

After having sent my child to the school for only 3 weeks, I pulled her out as soon as I could. The school itself is falling down, the drug and gang problems are out of control, and the quality of the teachers and learning is pathetic. If you are considering the Humble area just make sure you can find a local private school. It is the only answer.

Both my child and I were VERY disappointed with Humble High. After being in the ninthe grade for two weeks, we had experienced an overwhelming amount of drugs, alcohol, and violence in the school. Besides all of that, the academic structure of the school is not sound. After two weeks, we took our child out of Humble and started homeschooling. This went very well, and through our church and other activities he was able to have even more social interaction than before. After a couple of months, we moved to The Woodlands, and let me tell you, their schools are MUCH better academically, and the crime seemed to be much less than Humble. After a couple of months at TWHS, we decided that though it was probably one of the best public schools in the metropolitan area, we decided to continue with our homeschooling program. This has worked to our advantage.

As a graduate in 2002, I feel comfortable in saying that going to Humble prepared me for college. The extracurricular activities at Humble are fantastic. Competing groups are constantly ranked in the top tier. The teachers I dealt with were fantastic. The principles were less helpful, but what can they do with 4,000 students?

I have had two children attend Humble High School. I would not recommend that anyone send their children there. My children learned, from the teachers and administrators what the word unfair meant, they learned not to trust the very people that we had empowered as authority figures. This school system needs an overhaul and bad.

I graduated in 2001. I was lucky enough to be at the top of my class, so I received excellent treatment from faculty and staff and developed good relationships with my teachers. However, it is safe to say this is not the standard at Humble. Students who do not already show promise are quite possibly neglected or regarded as hopeless cases. There have been some excellent and dedicated teachers in the past, but even they tend to get fed up with red tape and required standards and the apathy bred by the idea of a standard minimum. The curriculum these days is geared toward standardized tests, which does nothing for the development of intellectual curiosity. Perhaps things have changed with the new principal, but I'd say it will take a while for the school to show vast improvement.

I am a parent of former Humble High School student who graduated and went on to college. This year I have a son graduating from there. I can honestly say that we have had no problems with Humble High School. Both of my children have had a positive school experience in their tenure with the district, starting with elementary school. I feel that the teachers and staff at this school are doing an excellent job. I have friends with children in a nearby district and when they tell me about some of the problems they are having at their children's schools, I am grateful that my children had the benefit of this district. As for the review stating that there is drug traffic at Humble High School and that some of the lockers are missing doors, I have not found this to be true.

Because the previous principal placed such an inordinate amount of emphasis upon state testing in the last few years, the students received a mediocre education in math. This is evidenced by their dramatic drop in scores when a new test was introduced. Humble went from math scores in 90's to scores in the 60's and 70's, scoring even below the state average in 10th grade in 2003. Furthermore, these tests are already significantly curved. The local Junior College presently enrolls 65% of its students in remedial courses.

As a student here I believe this school may have an appearance of being a quality school, although what most parents don't see are the frequent drug traffic and gang involvement. This school's lockers don't open, or even have doors on most of them. The classrooms are falling apart.
