20 Parent Reviews for Houston Middle School

Most of the teachers are just not good, they don't set any positive example. Besides, quite often the lessons are filled with unrelated to the subject activities to say the least, at times plain goofing around internet by the teachers. Academic program is very poor.

I think this school deserves a current review. This is our third year at HMS, and we couldn't be more thrilled with our experience here. From academics, to arts, and after school opportunities, we have found helpful and caring staff at every turn. I believe getting involved has been a key to our son's ...  Read more

First off, I'm an 8th grader here at Houston. All I can say is, I've been here for 3 years and the school is completely and thoroughly unprepared to bring us into highschool. They care less about academics than extracurriculars, which is super, but their share of extracurriculars barely balance our needs. ...  Read more
