I have to say really id give them 2.5 stars. Alief is a much better district. First of all zoning is a joke. We live literally 3 blocks from a great high rated school yet are zoned to a yucky one 1.2 miles away. And transportation ia non existant. Unless you live 2 miles or morw from your ZONed school. Gifted talented (gt) classes were cut and gt kids get nothing in terms of services other then a "gt expo" once a year. Some of the teachers are great and really care. But the district sucks. Even trying to give. Tylenol to ur child with a chronic pain condition documented by their doctor is a headache that requires about 7 different forms, yet they sent my 5th grader out the door on his own and told him to "walk home" on the 2nd day of school even tho his paperwork clearly stated do not release to ANyONE BUT MOM! They dont call you when ur child has a serious problem but are quick to call you to come and pick up some pokemon cards. Ugh. And this is not just one school this is several that do the same thing. And to top of off they cancelled school cuz of the astros winning a game. Seriously hisd? U value baseball more then your students? Hisd needs to get it together

The hisd website does not state that the building is closed on Fridays in the summer! The staff is also not friendly and are not helpful at all. Definitely needs improvement!
