At Houston High School, students choose a Career and Technical Education (CTE) path to follow for their four years as a Mustang. These pathways provide many opportunities for Early Post-Secondary Opportunities, including Dual Enrollment (DE) courses and certifications, such as a Certified Medical Assistant. With 28 Advanced Placement (AP) and 17 Dual Enrollment courses offered, we are preparing our students for what comes next. Most recently, for the class of 2024, we had 15 students named as National Merit Finalists, and in the graduating class of 2023, there were eight National Merit Finalists, eight National Merit Commended, and two Presidential Scholar Semifinalists.
Student involvement is a huge part of what we encourage at GMSD. School is so much more than just academics - it is a place for students to come together! From clubs, to the arts and athletics, students are presented with a wide range of opportunities to get involved. Our arts programs throughout the district are award winning. Last spring, our Houston Middle School band received perfect scores at the Band Concert Festival, and our theater programs throughout our elementary schools put on excellent shows to packed houses each night.
