This school, should not even be called a "School!" I am a parent of an 11th grader whom went to this school. I was transferring her out of H.L.H for many reasons, and get this; " It took 2 weeks to receive unofficial transcripts!" Supposedly ONLY 1 person is authorized to release, yet that 1 person ...  Read more

THE MOST TERRIBLE SCHOOL OF ALL TIME!!! There are WAY too many bullies and sometimes teachers say "Well, that's not my problem!" I mean, NO teacher in their right mind would say stuff like that! Anyways, bottom line is BAD SCHOOL, BAD EVENTS, AND WORST OF ALL... BAD ATTITUDE!!!

This school is terrible. They take too much time in sports. Tutoring doesn't really do anything as well, because they don't even help you at all.

I have mixed feelings about this school, the teachers do play favorites and if a student is not in sports, they are treated differently, and not for the better. Serious attention needs to be given to the attitudes of the teachers and staff. Just because a person is not in sports does not mean they ...  Read more

I had my child in Houghton Lake's Collins Elem for just a few months after moving to the area. I pulled my son from this school because it was a horrific experience. My very well behaved and excellent-scoring child reported to me a confusing and coarse environment. I did try to check his complaints and ...  Read more

I have four children in this school system. And I am not happy with the the school system. Most teachers have been there so long that they have lost interest in the kids development. The class room sizes are very large and the teachers don't have time for those who need extra help. No study halls and ...  Read more

As a former student of the Houghton Lake school system i can say from my own personal experiences with the school that its a sad district. Sad teaching staff with the exception of maybe one or two teachers. I came from the brighton mi school district in the 4th grade to houghton lake schools and was ...  Read more

This school is half in between a good school and a bad school. A couple teachers don't care about your opinions at all. They favor athleticism over actual smarts.
