Our Mission

We believe that through teaching and learning, we have the opportunity to impact and positively change the lives of our students. We believe that all students are capable of defining and experiencing success, ultimately building confidence in themselves while instilling a spirit of generosity, drive, passion, and focus. We work in collaboration with San Jacinto College to help at-risk students attain college credit with the aspiration of earning an Associate’s Degree and Distinguished High School diploma in four years.

Thank You!

Today we begin finals and, thus, wind down for the semester. I have enjoyed this year thus far and I wanted to thank you each for your time, flexibility, and professionalism with all we have embarked upon this year. Thank you for helping to develop our house system; thank you for opening up your classrooms to one another and embarking on the journey that is Instructional Rounds to improve our practice; and, working hard to ensure our students to do well both in and out of the classroom.


We will return to a busy Spring: Graduation, STAAR EOC, SAT, TSI, and recruitment for the class of 2020! I hope you take the next two weeks to recharge, spend time with family and friends, and enjoy the holiday season! You've earned it!
