Huntsville high school is a really good school to be part of. Being a graduate from huntsville high school and looking back I am really pleased with the location of the school and the spirit that the school has. Huntsville high school is a small school where students can get the one on one learning with the teacher, and the sport are amazing. The school is small but it has a lot of heart.

Huntsville High School used to be a decent place to learn. Now, with new administration, we're slipping down the drain. Quite simply, they run HHS like a prison, and we don't need another one of those in Huntsville. For the sake of your child's life and education, do not send him or her to HISD.
