Students say the best part of their high school experience is:

  • Having the chance to get an associate’s degree from HCC because I have already taken some classes I had to take for my major so I’m ahead. Meeting my friends.
  • Making friendships with people that are just as dedicated to their studies, getting to know the teachers and have them as mentors.
  • Maturing into a young adult and learning about balancing responsibilities and being successful in school.
  • The freedom and trust we were given to go over to Houston Community College and conduct ourselves as young adults.
