Harris County offers lots of advanced placement classes giving students the opportunity to earn college credits in high school. The school also has lots of extra curricular activities and clubs for students to get involved with including Future Business Leaders of America, Skills USA, and Future Farmers of America. The teachers, in general, seem to care about their students education at this facility. I strongly recommend this school.
