We have raised 7 children and we have lived all over the country and been to at leat 10 different schools over the last 20 years. This school has been overly controlling, judgmental, and arrogant. Our son was a star football player at a 6A school before coming here and he was ignored and treated like crap all season. He was even blamed when other kids broke into the locker room on his team. He was put behind freshman who never showed up to practice and failed their classes. He was put into one game, and scored 3 times and ran over 350 yards on JV, the next week he was benched and told to play with the freshman, and even then he sat on the bench. They have not accommodated for his IEP plan, and we have to stay on the phone and fight with the counselor and teachers constantly because his teachers never update his grades online and assign him his makeup work on days he misses school. The school has been so hard on him he wants to quit football and high school all-together. After calling his head coach several times this fall, and talking to him, he replied to us, "Maybe you should go back to Houston because obviously you and your son do not like it here."
