Pearland High is, at best, a mediocre school. I managed to transfer myself to Dawson High, which is also in Pearland ISD. The change was immediate. The teachers were much better. They were friendly with their students and were on good terms with parents. The administrators and office workers were efficient and my parents were seldom frustrated. The school also looks cleaner and more spacious than Pearland High. On a point-by-point comparison with Dawson High, Pearland High loses by several miles.

PHS has high academic standards and excellent teacher preparation and education. The administration fosters a friendly, team-building atmosphere. The school is student centered- not only on academics, but supporting students emotionally, too.

I agree with the last reviewer. My daughter is a Junior here and she's really disappointed with the way the students seem to be in their own little world, (narrow minded and such). She has been to many a school all over Houston and neighboring communities since elementary and when she tells me how horrid her classmates are to each other,.. I believe her, she would know. I initially thought, "O.k., Pearland,...sounds like a nice community with good schools". Then a few months later, after some bad reviews from my daughter and interaction with the school and its faculty, I am ready to move out and switch districts. The curriculum alone is not enough to stay and stick it out because afterall, what good is trying to teach potentially intelligent students if they keep their minds closed to the world outside of Pearland and its diversities?

Folks are in the Military & I attended quite a few schools. When I got to Pearland High it felt like I went back to elementary school, very immature/sheltered students. The schools back east in RI paid more attention to school work & even prepared me for college by helping understand where I needed to be in life. The teachers were honest & knew who I was & I was able to understand the work. They interacted with all the students. In Cali, they really rushed me through many courses so I could catch up on needed curriculum so I could pass the grade I was in and it had to do it while attending current classes. So it was much harder and faster pace. The classes were also more ethnic in culture so I learned how to interact in life. The classes were average size and much work into college work. In Denver, a little different & not much learning was going on and was only book learning. In Pearland, was so disappointing as they were more into dress code, keeping their budgets and looking a certain type. I wish I never attended this school and tried to transfer a few times. I learned how not to be a certain way by all the people that I was around. Not a friendly school at all. Avoid if u can.

I moved here from the Memorial area to buy a cheaper house and with it came a mediocre education. Everyone said, wow Pearland is great. No they are average but I will tell you they are exemplary because of the districting, there is a good place to live in Pearland and a bad place. Look at the zoning of the schools, they are haphazard at best. Pick the wrong neighborhood and you might as well have put your child in HISD. Dont waste your money, property taxes are three times the rate here and if you are in the wrong district the education is worthless.

I have traveled the world & seen many effective educational systems. PISD educational system needs much improvements. The leadership is not there; faculty members are over worked and unadaptable, and can't control their classes; extracurricular activities are very limited and biased towards athletics; and profiling of students needs to stop . Also, faculty members need to stop focusing so much on student dress codes and tardies, instead use disgretion.Students miss more class time going to some computerized tardy station getting pass and detention. Turn names into admin & let them handle it. A student may needed to use the restrm(the alotted time btwn classes doesn't allow for this). Several students were told to take care of their personal habits at home. Faculty needs to communicate better w/ parents about the students not the school events. Shot out to Mr Bready, Mr Layne, & Ms Patterson.

I graduated from Pearland High School in 2008. I will honestly say that many of the classes are good and offer a great curriculum with even better teachers that will prepare you for college. However, getting the right classes are hit and miss, and that's only if you're an AP student. If you're a regular student, almost all the classes are terrible. The class sizes are very big, and the administration feels forced to treat the school like a prison to maintain any level of control. Many of the disciplinary policies are downright ridiculous, and even the ones that do make sense seem unnecessarily. On the positive side, the extracurricular opportunities are Awesome and make up for many of the downsides. There is always something to do if you know where to look. I personally was a member of the choir for four years and loved it.

I just graduated from Pearland in 2008. I can tell you first hand that the whole dress code and their disciplining is ridiculous to say the least. It gradually gets worse every year. This year if you dont have your ID on you have to go to the office and pay $5 every time, regardless if its the last 2 weeks of the year and you have been a student for the teacher for the the entire year. Their is a huge gape between regular classes and AP. Regular is a complete joke and is not preparing anyone for college. last year If someone has missed 80% of their classes and was about to fail they said the kids just have to bring in coke cans and they get credit..what is that?! On a positive note the people and teachers are very down to earth and its easy to make friends.
