This school is run like a middle school and most of the teaching is the same too. The classes are either AP or Pre-AP, but either way your student will fail when test time comes if its not the TAKS.
Horrible administration. Ginnie pig school. Make sure your kid is ready for college courses because if he or she flunks out of the class he or she is in it will effect his or her eligibility for financial aid in the future. Many of the students are just being pushed into college classes without any real advisement or knowledge of the college system or knowledge of how financial aid and or how financial aid eligibility really works. Administration is constantly changing which is a testament to its poor leadership. Discipline is an extreme issue at this campus. Their are tons of students constantly walking the halls and not in class. Their pre-ap classes are a joke. They just throw all the kids into pre-ap and expect the brightest students to learn while the worst are distracting/disrupting the class. This school is poorly managed and poorly run and the current principal is simply Dr. King's tool.
I believe most teachers in this school are there because they like teaching and to what I see they care for the students. They make sure to contact either parent and have conference in reference to the students' behavioral. One of the things I have liked throughout this year 2010-2011 the principal and some teachers were visiting the student's home. Only one thing I really dislike is: those barriers on the second floor it is a danger with so many kids going to their other classes. Hopefully they do something about that because as a parent it sure is a concern to many. Other than those BARRIERS I believe lthe overall staff is doing excellent up to now and hopefully it continues because I have my other 2 kids that will be attending this school.
Although this is a brand new high school, the entire staff is is extremely committed to the children's education. Their motto is "establishing a legacy of College Readiness". The teacher's provide tutoring as needed, coming in early and staying late.
