This school is big yes, crowded yes, and most kids come from well off families. I would also have to agree that the students have given this school it marks, freshman teachers are the worst, but so far sophomore teachers seem better. Principle has no idea what's happening in his school for instance he has a health teacher that is late to class pretty much every single day, and then leaves early and skips classes, no one seems to care. Football rules any other sports take back seat to use of facilities, no one seems to care. This is not school specific but if your kids don't play the sport competitive team outside of school it's hard to make varsity sports in Texas. The downsize of such a competitive academic school is that the top 30% of this school sophomore class has 4.0 GPA or higher with a 4.2 u are in the bottom of the top 25%, which this is not a teacher given, the students work their tails off for it, hours of studying and homework every night. Best advice for parents if you want them to attend this school their freshman year, they need to take band, theatre, and participate in sports all through junior high. Everything is more competitive in Texas!

Cultural diversity and positive challenging environment. Due to the nature of my job my family is used to relocate every 2~3yrs, so my kids have been in numerous schools around the world and this enables us to compare. This is definitely a GREAT school that despite its size and the size of its population they do an excellent job at start preparing kids for their next step in college. Isn't that what you look for in a high school anyway?

This is an outstanding school. I have to laugh at the whiners on here who complain about it being too competitive or the students being stuck up. We moved here during my son's sophomore year and he made friends very quickly (and we are far from rich). He is a B average, academic level student who for the most part, has really liked his teachers. Over the last two years he has gotten involved in a number of extracurricular organizations and made many great HS memories. The people complaining on this site would probably complain no matter where they attended.

This school is good preparation for college and the work place. It offers a variety of classes and elective options. The music programs are EXCELLENT. While some may feel it is too competitive, I would argue the kids learn they are not entitled to any free passes. I would agree there is a big disparity between the accelerated and regular academic classes, no one can argue that an "average student" should be able to make good grades in the latter classes. My oldest child is graduating from Seven Lakes in two weeks and my second oldest child will be graduating this coming year. While no school is perfect, if you are looking for a high school in Katy, TX it is the best.

I feel compelled to let other people know that this school is not all it's cracked up to be! I was aware prior to enrolling my son that the school was competitive. That's fine, for those that want that. However, for those kids who are just "regular", this school doesn't have a place for them. Really. Everything, and I mean everything is a competition. From buying a parking pass, to volunteering, to actually hoping to try a sport or extracurricular. If you aren't already great at it, forget it! It has not been a good school experience for us! It should not be ranked 9 out of 10. Maybe at one point it was a "great" school, but it has lost its way and needs to have a wake up call! Seven Lakes needs to remember that they are a HS, not a college. They are a school for all kids, not just super bright, super talented, super athletic ones. We are counting down the days until summer!

So it's my first day at seven lakes and I walk in thinking everyone's nice and this school will be great. That's what they told me so I believe them. Well I really wish I took back that thought right after 1st period. After a while I started to notice that you have to either be a something to be noticed in this school. In this school you have to be in a sport, club, or have outstanding academic achievements to be considered a somebody. If your not like someone else your invisible to EVERYONE including the teachers. Not to mention there are so many kids in one class room the teachers have barely anytime for one on one with a student. Everyone in this school is rich and snobby and it's so annoying. So if your thinking of bringing your kid here, good luck.

School Building/Facilities: Awful, jail like with no windows, and 4000 students crammed into a quarter mile area. Teachers: Uncommitted and bored due to the over-emphasis on "teaching to the test" Students: Extremely diverse and multi-cultural, very globally aware with students from every corner of the world Demographics: >95 % above the $150k family income bracket, but little elitism to be found Acheivement: Statistics show that SLHS has incredible academic acheivement in the state of Texas, and decent athletic as well Overall: It is a school where the ratings and adornments have little to do with the actual atmosphere. The reality is that this school is hyper-competitive, and too much emphasis is placed on standardized testing. What makes it amazing, however, is the incredible community spirit and student acceptance- It is the highly educated backgrounds from which they come that defines their success, not the inefficient administration of Katy ISD.

This school (SLHS) is the most stuck up, snobby, close minded school I have ever attended. The kids are bullies, insecure, and so unaccepting to anyone who isn't like they are. I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone. They will flat out lie to you to think that you are going in to a great, fun, accepting school, then after a while, you will see how "nice" the kids are. The teachers will do practically anything to make sure you get an A. Obviously because it's kA+y isd... This place is horrible. Everyone acts like they are better than everyone else while being so insecure that they have to dress the same. They have 4 lunches starting at 10:48 and the last lunch ends at 12:43 because of the almost 4,000 kids that go there. Don't plan on driving to school either there is a waiting list, even for seniors who have priority over everyone. Don't go here... The only reason I gave it a star is because you have to.

These school grounds are probably the best you will ever find anywhere in a public school. At a cot to tax payers of more than $70Million, I am sure you can imagine, there is nothing more you can ask for from a building. Only if buildings made for good schools. Well it doesn't. Evidently standard tests and an inordinate amount of homework does. this place is just plane cold, and yes student writers, I have read your comments, and I understand what you mean. Even as a parent I am given the brush off on many occasions, I can only imagine how my son feels. Now let me say this. If your child is a self starter...motivated, and just gets it with all of their classes, where studying is just second nature, and passing tests is a breeze, then this is the school for you and your child. I have one of those too...and he does well. I also thoguh have a very creative, free thinker, who struggles, and finds studying a chore...for this son, I have to bolster the curriculum with tutors, encouragement, and just plane roll up your sleeves parenting. This school is not cut out for this type of student...it is a factory, and run a foul od the cookie cutter student, and you will be run over!

Although the School is still overcrowded by the rapid development of the Katy area (even with Tompkins HS already open), the school is academically excellent, and challenge its students to look for the best learning experience. I'm very happy that my son (already in his senior year) is part of SLHS. His academic preparation and hard work earn him access to be invited to the best Universities/colleges nationwide, and also to receive letters for merit scholarships. SLHS is really engaged in preparing the students to be easily admitted on almost any college, and even with only 8 years since opened; it already earned a well deserved fame among top colleges due the excellent academic preparation of its students. So for those people that don t pursue this goal, SLHS could be hard academically, sure, but as a parent, I can t see any better place to prepare students for university live.

First off, the only reason that this school deserves 2 stars is because of the incredible openness/acceptance and community spirit- On part of the students. You find people from around the world, literally from everywhere, and this enables students to be open-minded and culturally educated. But as a school, SLHS is simply awful. They try to portray themselves as an "award winning", "academically excellent" environment but it is hyper-competitive and negative. In reality, it is simply a badly-run, poorly-designed, school with tons of money and really smart students (not due to the school). Impossible to make friends because of the huge size. Uninterested/unmotivated teaching staff, and over-the-top emphasis on standardized testing and constant studying. 99% of students come from the upper-middle class, 175k + income bracket, highly educated parents, and this is what defines the school, not Katy ISD. Sure, it looks good on paper but you have to dig deep to see the true ugly underneath.

I moved to the Katy area in the middle of my freshman year, i am now a junior. it was hard to adjust academically. i moved from NY where the passing grade was a 65 or above and here at Seven lakes it is 70 or above which i think is outrageous. The mandatory classes they make you take here do not match up with other states. when i came in the end of November i was put into World History which is a sophomore class. it was also Pre-AP and they refused to let me switch out because I came after the first 6 weeks. Another thing, i had missed almost a month of school and even at the academic levels, the curriculum moves a a very fast pace. The fall semester finals were just a mere 3 weeks a way when i moved here and i was expected to take all of them and know the material like the back of my hand. I went to every single tutorial but beyond that it was in my hands. i studied every night but on top of learning new material in class and the old material it was next to impossible. However aside from the extremely high competitive academics, the student body is very nice and diverse. the only problem is people are very judgmental. i had to make myself presentable in order to make friends.

This school, just like the entire Katy ISD creates a lot of hype about its rating. And keeping its official rating is all Katy ISD cares about. As parents you should ask yourself a question if this rating really matters to you when your child will be attending a school that is overcrowded , understaffed and does not even provide your child with textbooks when they get short. Would you want your child to study in a mobile home classroom since the school is out of space? Or do you think your child will get sufficient teacher's attention at SLHS that has roughly 1 teacher for every 40 students and during dismissals your child would have to navigate through stampede in the hallways of SLHS? Beware also that there have been recent cases of students bringing weapons to schools and suicidal students at Katy ISD. Do not make a mistake we did and find a better place to live. Or if you really want to live in Katy, settle where new schools are built.

Great school. Put Greater Houston Area on national stage through their awesome Scioly acievements (6th in 2013). Teachers, students and parents work together to get the result. Right place to be for my kid.

I graduate in 08 and I loved SLHS. I was the first class to graduate and transferred my sophomore year because the school I attended my freshman year was a nightmare. SLHS immediately felt like home. The teachers were nice, the students were great, and I loved the administration. When I had my leg surgery everyone helped me to make sure I didn't get behind. I hope to come back and work here and give back to a school who gave so much to me.

Seven Lakes High is a medium good High School, but not too great. There are some awesome teachers for Comp Sc, French, Geography etc. However the school earned it's name and fame by the students and their parent involvement. Some teachers who have no teaching interest or abilities are being hired here. Like the retired Chiropractor who does not teach well at all, but makes Biology a nightmare for the kids inspite of their interest and hardwork. Even the Math teachers hardly teach but give lots of homework to the kids(which he does not care to check but gives 100%), and since the parents are very much involved and commiteed to their children's studies these kids are able to learn from their parents make good grades.

It is undeniable that SL is a big school, however I really enjoy the diversity & fact that the large atmosphere ensures that everyone fits in somewhere. The teachers do a really great job of making the classes feel smaller, & teaching to the needs of a large population. Classes actually tend to be an average size (24 kids) w/ the occasional class of 30. There is a lot that goes on to really help prepare you for college & the tutoring program at SL gives students ample opportunities to get help & easily work around clubs/team commitment. The large atmosphere also serves as motivation for students to truly work hard at what they love & develop a true dedication for what they do. SL offers some of the widest variety of courses & has some of the top teams in the state and nation (and an on the rise National ranking Science Olympiad team) as well as some of the best standardized testing scores. The campus is beautiful & kept in top condition and the community is very involved in the lives & welfare of the students. SL has a great atmosphere that gives students who want it a challenge & an outlet to shine students develop amazing work ethic & stamina. It truly is a school for the best.

The classes are crowded. The teachers & counselors are overworked and underpaid. So quality of education is not very good. The school does well because kids are from famillies that take interest in their child's development. The teachers will often place questions on exams that require subject knowledge which is not covered in class. This practice can result in bright kids who do their homework and understand the material in getting low grades. For example, we have a child who was getting Cs and low Bs in algebra and geometry, so we thought he did not have aptitude for mathemematics. However, when he took the SAT at the end of sophomore year, it turned out he was nationally in the top 5% in mathematics. So, now we simply ignore what the teachers and their grades and pay attention to the standardized test scores. Now we help our child pick classes based on standardized test scores rather than school grades. If you want your kids to do well academically, put them in summer programs and get them private tutoring etc. This is important because a lot of colleges rely on these GPAs to give admission in colleges.

I moved to Glen Meadows so that my child could attend a hgih quality Middle School and Hig School. I am happy that I did and chose for my child to attend Seven Lakes after Beck Jr. HS. The quality of education will really prove valuable toward getting him into a good college and a start in life.

I guess the first thing you should know is that the school is huge, we've got almost 4000 people attending, I know a lot of people are into the closeness of a small class, but to me it doesn't really matter, I see a complete stranger in my school everyday, people I've been in the same school with all year and I've never seen them before, but it's no biggie, other than that graduating from this school is prestigious, sure the classes can be kind of hard, but we make the best test scores in the state, and colleges accept many of our students. And when you hit second semester of junior year, having that kind of high school background doesn't hurt. I'm ot very school spirited, I don't go to games or anything like that, but a lot of people do. The teachers are alright, all very intelligent people, students are ehh, they tend to group together and hardly ever break away from that group, the freshman are very separated from the rest of the school, they're very much less respected, but in my eyes that's good, you've got to make it through your first year to earn that respect. I feel that this is a school for the best, and that those who go here will receive many opportunities in life.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.
