Houston Heights High School Philosophy
Houston Heights High School was founded on a very simple philosophy. A school serves the students and their family. It is our firm belief that smaller schools better serve the students and consequently their parents and community. As a small school we offer a healthy, positive, school environment, where students are nurtured and valued. Students and parents receive individual attention and are contributors in the decision making process. Parents are encouraged to meet with the Principal. Students are strongly encouraged to perform volunteer work in the community. A sense of community develops where people actually have a real voice. A sense of ownership develops in the students and their parents. Classes are smaller. Teachers have more time to work with students and actually know their students. Accountability is the direct outcome. Everyone is held accountable for student success.
Houston Heights High School does not discriminate on the basis of gender, national origin, ethnicity, race, religion, disability, academic, artistic, or athletic ability, or the district the child would otherwise attend. Furthermore, in compliance with the requirements of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended; Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972; and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, all vocational opportunities (including Career and Technical Education Programs) will be offered without regard to race, color, national origin, sex or handicap. Houston Heights High School may exclude a student who has a documented history of a criminal offence, juvenile court adjudication, or discipline problems under TEC Chapter 37, Subchapter A.
