Beware If Your Child Likes Art, There Isn't Enough Supplies That The School Provides Very Limited Amount. It Seems To Me They Want To Get Rid Of Art Or Any Classes Pertaining To It Because They Don't Have Anything For The Kids In Art. Check It Out & See For Yourself. I'm Very DISGUSTED about All This Because The School Can Spend Money ON Other Electives But NOT ART. Take for Example There Big Stadium, & Art Classes SUFFER. This School District Has There Priorities Messed UP & Don't Appreciate How They Have Gone About THis.

I have no complaints about this school district. Two children already graduated and both have degrees and are successful adults. I have one more child which will complete high school then will go on to get a degree. I get upset when people talk bad about our schools. I truly believe you get what you put into your childs education. I am proud of the education my children got and are getting and I am so blessed my children got and are getting all they need to follow their own dreams.

I currently work for NCISD. I also graduated from New Caney HS c/o '06. I used to have the same opinions as all other 'students'...back then when I was attending. But now that I have graduated and taken a step back to look at the district, it is actually a really great school district. Not all teachers or staff workers are dedicated to the kids, of course not. There will always be those few, but for the most part I thought it was pretty good. We are 1 out of 29 in the whole state of Texas to be a Recognized District. that means, for All of you who hate the district and dropped out-> that out of hundreds of school districts in Texas only 29 are Recognized and we are 1 of them! There you go, that's all I have to say.

I went to this school from 2004-2007, and graduated Magna Cum Laude. I am honored to have participated in one of the best Academic Decathlon teams in the state, and our advanced classes were where the students who cared about their education could really advance. Bottom line is, for a student with drive and ambition, this school is top-notch. My sisters are both currently attending, and neither of them have any real complaints. The school has cleaned up quite a bit since my freshman year, found more stable administrators, and has a more diverse and dedicated student body than ever before.

Principals and teachers are fair. Acdec and Journalism are usually tops in state. Like all schools, there are areas needing improvement (Sports). But overall, this is a good place of learning. I learned a lot there.

I graduated from New Caney High School not too many years ago. I was a student in the district since 2nd grade. All I can tell you is that I hated the district. As a student, I could see the problems with the administration: there was a HUGE lack of communication among all levels of the staff, and for the most part, it seemed as though the teachers wished to be somewhere else. I am now about to graduate with my own teaching certificate and I will NEVER set foot back into any of NCISD's schools. If you want your child to get an education, choose any other district but this one.

Most complaints about New Caney High School do not relate to the current administration. The current principals are very competent and set a good example for other high schools. They deserve a pat on the back. And, my child goes to NCHS and she likes it.

My son started at the 9'th grade campus in November and so far I am really impressed. I see the teachers seem to really care about the students and their future. My son told me he felt the students were very friendly and as a new kid thats good to hear.

I hate this school. I have only been in it a short while, but I've had a bad experience already. I vulgar language used astounds me. There is no disapline in this school. The students tell me of countless places they'd rather be. Most of the teachers seem cold and unaccomidating! This is not a good place to send children, especially if they have good standards for their learning. Not only is it not a safe emvironment, but it's not a welcoming evironment. Save your children and put them somewhere else. - a currently enrolled student

New Caney is a very rural school with a high number of reduced lunches. The staff is very worn out and the high school Principal office has a revolving door...I will say now that the Athletic Director is on the way out maybe the military drills will change to functional..motivational pracitices that promote team play. I would not send my dog to this school. It lacks any up to date open minded staff. Just ask most teachers in the district where their children go to school..not NCISD..

New Caney is a very special place with many special teachers...they are very into discipline and give students zero tolerance for their own opinions. I would not send my dog to this school. They change Principals every year..the coaching and now the Director is out the door..this however could be the big change they need to get the shallow thinking out the door.

I am the parent of two boys. One of my sons graduated with Magna Cum Laude from New Caney High School in 2003. He is now a Junior at a major university and is doing well. The teachers and staff at New Caney High School played a big part in his succeeding. My youngest son is now in New Caney High and has just finished his Freshman year. He is also doing quite well. He finished the year with all A's. He has some amazing teachers going the extra mile to make sure these students get the best possible education they can. I think New Caney ISD has some of the best teachers in the state.

This school has been the worst thing to happen to my children. The administration ignores the problems with the out of control student behavior. The result, fairly decent acting children are taught what they can get away with because the punishments- if they are even applied a far too light. Fighting, harassment, and students being arrested are not uncommon events at the school. The teachers seem to have given up on trying to teach the kids, as I hear that almost daily in several classes they have watched movies for the day.

This school has potential but right now it has too many issues. Maybe in the next 5 years it will offer a more upbeat environment.

New Caney is no longer a High School. it is simply a place for students to meet up and go and smoke pot and ciggs in the restrooms, sell pills in the hallways, fighting and cussing in the class rooms with no kind of disapline. This school is so wrapped up in its self that they cant even see the importance of the school they are more worried about the way the hallways look. now dont get me wrong thats nice but shouldnt be put before that education standards. I recently with alot of my fellow classmates dropped out of school. The policies that are supposed to help the students out are doing nothing but hurting them The only one true person i looked up to at the that school was my 11th grade history teacher mrs. wheatly. she was my role model and pushed me to suceed and I did until the school stopped me from acheiving my dreams!

This school I think is very corrupted. There is something wrong when my daughter has had a different principal for every year of her high school experience. Constantly there is changing and none of it seems to be for the better. The district keeps expanding and expanding, but instead of helping the communities children, it is keeping them from being educated the way they should be. The money is being put in the wrong places, constantly, and the children involve in those extracurricular activities are not rewarded the way they should be. It is hard for a student to distinguish themselves in this school. A student may have a GPA of 4.7, be involves in band, choir, athletics, and dance, and never be aknowledged. Also, teachers and principals play favorites all too often. Our students may be sitting in nice new buildings, but they are not learning.

Honestly I would have rather gone to any other high school in the country. As the other review said there isn't much to expect from this high school. My Senior year there was uncertified teachers teaching, and teachers teaching classes that they had no degree in. For Example my spanish teacher was a history major and should have been a history teacher, she was a sweet good hearted lady, but couldn't speak a word of spanish. The staff for the most part doesn't seem like they want to teach there or even be there for the most part. There are of coarse the select few who care about the student and want to see them to a good future, but this school is very silly when it comes to their money management skills. The school is too Small for the amount of students and staff and they need more programs.

There are few opportunities for students to express their creative side at New Caney. The Fine Arts department is extremely under funded. The teachers are mostly wonderful though. There are a few bad apples of course. The students are jaded for the most part- due to a poorly run administation that changes from year to year and most have resigned themselves and believe that they will never attend college. There are many well run programs at New Caney though: Thespians AcDec JROTC Choir Band a varity of dance courses as well as a very very large athletics department.
