I think the dress code is worthless. Especially when kids are allowed to get away with wearing their clothes way to big. I would rather see the student dress, fitted properly and neat. I also have a problem with no school books. How are the students suppose to be able to learn anything without books.

Faculty level of effort is high, but diminished by weak support from administrators in dealing with classroom disruption. The few students who consider classtime thier socializing time and opportunity to foil teaching processes, are not effectively dealt with by 'support' staff. Little to no effort is given to corrective or preventive strategies to improve classroom behavior. As a result, some few students, not motivated to learn, feel empowered to make class time their play time, often stopping instruction while the teacher deals with off-task behavior. More support to the faculty in consistentlly maintaining a learning environment in the classroom is sorely needed. Responsibiliy for instituting this much-needed change falls squarely on the shoulders of the principal.

A large comprehensive high school with many academic and extracurricular opportunities for all students. SRHS offers a variety of Advanced Placement courses. The current principal is very attentive and dedicated to the needs of the students and faculty. Parents take part in multiple booster organizations but there could be more parent support in areas other than football and dance.

I personaly attended this school and do believe there are improvements to be made. Overall though this is one of the most well rounded schools in harris county. I have attended many schools for personal reasons.

I have been a TEXAN parent for 6 years now. I have found the staff and faculty very friendly and helpful. There is a new principal, Mr. Troy McCarley, who is very nice and very well intentioned. Troy has made some changes that have been very effective in reducing fights and he is absolutley behind the zero tolerance policies at lot of schools and districts have adopted in the last several years. Some of his methods I disagree with, (ie: dismissing the cafeteria one table at a time) though it has been extremely effective. I just think you have treat the students in a bit more adult manner, this isn't elementary. Mr. McCarely definately believes in consequesnces for actions, good and bad. Most of the issues I have with public education have to do with the state education agencies and the policies of the district. Within those boundaries, Rayburn wins.
