At a middle school football game, we lost and the lights were turned off on the visitor side before they had a chance to get out of the stands. Never have I been more embarrassed that my children go to this school. It seems like academics are not as important as sports to this school system as a whole.

This is the best school I've ever been to or ever seen! I see the reviews about drama and things like that, but newsflash! That's any high school! And the things about the teachers being rude, they are just doing their jobs first of all, so if the student doesn't take care of their stuff then it is not the teachers fault for having to get onto them. There have also been reviews about us being full of ourselves. Is it our fault that we take pride in what we do? Is there something wrong with saying that we can be good at something? I'm sorry but that sounds a little ridiculous. This is the best school district I've ever seen, but some students are not good with public schooling, so they might be better in a private school or homeschooling. As far as academics, we are ahead of the curve in most things, and it is true that some students have trouble because we have a rigorous pace. But, if the student is not being challenged, that means that they are not in the correct courses to fully expand their minds. This is the best high school experience, but only if you make it that. Remember that. If you expect great things then you will not be unsatisfied.

We moved here the beginning of my son's 6th grade year. Everyone welcomed him. The principal called us on Saturday to find out how our son's first week of school was! I was very impressed! My son has made tons of friends and is active in sports. Love the schools and teachers!!

I am very disappointed with Barbers Hill. The faculty is so full of themselves I think they forgot why they are there...for the kids! The teachers are bullies, no other way to put it! They think they are something special. The students are NOT accepting of new kids. It feels like hazing!! Not acceptable. We were told with a smug tone that they find ALL students who transfer in are behind. Well my child isn't at ALL being challenged academically. Walked in with straight A's. There is an unhealthy emphasis on sports. The school is hugely funded by the energy businesses but they are so busy emphasizing how they are so great they don't welcome the employee's families and children. My daughter begs me not to go to school every morning. I thought I was moving to a small Christian town...shame in you Barbers Hill.

Barbers Hill ISD is one of the best school districts in the state of Texas! They are constantly improving the way they teach our children and assuring that they have the tools needed to be successfully. I am extremely proud to say my children go to Barbers Hill... Go Eagles!

I hate this school. I took my children out because there was to much drama and nonsense and not enough learning. They think to much of themselves,and they think everything is handed to them in life. I dissaprove very much of this school and I wouldn't recommend it to ANYONE!

I graduated from 'The Hill' and loved every minute of it. Its hard to break down the school into whats good and what's bad, but one thing is for sure. People that grow up in Barbers Hill are the most well-rounded people I have ever met. I am now the Vice President of a large company in Dallas but as soon as i have children they will go to Barbers Hill. The sports program not only makes for a better athlete but also a better person.

I went to this school from K-12 and I thought it was okay. The expectations were not as high up there as I thought they should be academically now that I have children of my own that go to a nearby district -- Clear Creek ISD. I knew of failing boys that would get their grades changed just so they could play football. God forbid one of their star players could not perform...Everyone's a fan! If you want a good football, basketball & cheerleading program, then Barbers Hill is the place to be. If you want a good academic school I suggest look elsewhere.

This is the greatest school I have ever seen. I plan on moving back down to Texas just so my children can grow up in such extraordinary community. The teachers here are very easy to talk to and provide spectacular help for the students.

Bhhs is a good solid foundation education for college preperation. It has a experienced staff and growing community. It is still wanting for a larger extra ciricula program but it is a growing district that used to be primarily a rual community. Parent involvement is good at lower levels, there is no pta or pto which shows a lower commitment level in parent involvementin the upper levels. The district board and staff is very conservative in its forward thinking and that limits the progressive planning of future programs. All in all it is a good to very good standard education avenue for the young children.

We moved to this district when our son was a sophomore. I only wish we had been here when he started his education. Excellent teachers, excellent leaders, excellent experience.

My oldest daughter recieved an excellent education at BHHS. The teachers were of the highest caliber. The advanced classes available prepared her to be accepted a very prestigious private university.

I was a student of BHHS and I enjoyed everyday. My grades were always fine but at BHHS my grades became higher and better. I'd have my kids in BHHS but we live up north now. *sigh*
