    Honestly I absolutely hated going to Consol. There's obviously a lot of under-the-table-type deals going on because half of the kids in AP and Honors classes really don't deserve to be there. There are unfortunately very few teachers that are actually actively invested in what their students learn. For the most part most of the teachers seem like they aren't satisfied with their jobs. There isn't a lot of true learning going on; it's more like memorization. Also the sports programs are obviously valued over the fine arts; upgrades are made to the football program every year whereas many of the art teachers had to pay out of pocket for us to have usable supplies. Overall I wouldn't recommend going here if you have the choice.

    While Consol is a highly regarded school if your child is not on a team in AP or in the "right crowd" they will definitely fall through the cracks. It is a very competitive school. I will place my children in a smaller school where they will be able to be included in school activities because they are willing to try not because they are in all the right clubs. The stresses both of my children have endured while being at this school is not worth keeping them there. It is sad how many of the kids at this school have depression family problems or drug and alcohol problems and no one seems to notice or care. My kids have lots of friends from just about every click there is and most of the kids are accepting of other kids but there is a lot of drama. I will say that the teachers are very supportive of my kids and they do their best but there are just so many students I can see why they are overwhelmed and can only do so much. Sometimes bigger is not better.

    I am an alum of A&M Consolidated and highly recommend this school. The education and teachers are top notch. The school is very challenging academically but this prepared me incredibly well for college (and I didn't even take any of the AP classes that are offered!! I only took Honors or "regular" classes). I can't say enough about how much the teachers and principals care. This is an excellent school with the caliber that you would normally find in a larger market but happens to be in a somewhat smaller town with a great sense of community. I highly recommend College Station and could not imagine a better place to grow up or a better high school to attend.

    My daughter is graduating from Consol and my son is about to enter. It is a very challenging academic high school with more AP classes than any student can take. To be in the top 10% a student has to have a GPA above 4.0 meaning that they are required to take honors or AP classes. They also have a good music program many competitve sports and many clubs. Many of the teachers routinely are available before and after school for help. As anywhere a few teachers are less than stellar particularly since the bright students can be intimidating. There are 3 tracts regular honors and AP so that a student can be placed in the appropriate level of classes. They also have everything from FFA to construction science. The main drawback is that it is overcrowded but a new school will open in one year to alleviate this and will even offer a culinary program. I volunteer in the school a lot as do many parents.

    I'm a Consolidated alumnus and I can only talk good things about it. This high school changed my perspective on many life issues and taught me how to be an excellent leader. I was very involved with the high school so I really got everything out of it. I had an amazing experience and I was always challenged by my teachers to become the first person I could be. I highly recommend to mostly take Honors Pre-AP and AP classes. Regular classes tend to be for the slackers.

    i attended consolidated. it is a rich preppy school but it was some of the best years of my life. very cultured and diverse and quite safe. awesome sports program and plenty of academic challenges available including AP courses for college. awesome

    It is one of the best public schools in the state and a great school to attend. Many of the students' parents work with the university...so academics is a great priority for most families. They have one of the highest numbers of national merit scholars of any school and also place 1st or 2nd in academic competitions annually. Those who want their children to attend one of the top schools in the state and have their children grow up in a safe and exciting community...this is it! There is also a large international population that the university brings in so children will have friends from around the world. The students may be a little snobby but they have a lot of competition amongst eachother. They know if they attended another school that they would not have to work at hard to make the top 10 percent.

    My daughter is a Freshman this year and has been told by at least 2 teachers that they do not 'have time' for tutorial sessions. One is too busy prepping her kids for a competition to be held next March. Admin is aware of it and nothing is done to encourage these teachers to help 'teach' the newbies. Hopefully we will move next summer.

    I was a substitute at Consol in 2006. At the time I thought the students were a little arrogant and snotty. I now work in a very disadvantaged district and in retrospect Consol was a fantastic school. The students only seemed arrogant because they were so bright and well educated that it was difficult to keep them challenged. Arguably one of the best schools I have ever seen.

    I thoroughly enjoyed going to Consol. The students are friendly and it is very easy to become accepted. Most of the teachers are orientated to helping their students succeed.

    Arguably the best public high school in the state.

    School is far too sports-centered and does not focus on academics. Many tudents are quite rude and spend more days in In School Suspension than out of it. Some teachers seem forced into a job and are more focused on coaching than teaching.

    This school is lacking in several key areas. The students are very rude and arrogant along with some teachers. I will never substitute there again.

    The quality of academics at this school is great. There are a variety classes offered here. There are many music classes technology classes and electives. Competetion is high. Teachers teach well. Sports is excellent. There is nothing bad about a&m conoslidated. Better than houston schools

    There are many opportunities for advanced college-bound kids with mostly good teachers for the AP classes. Although the school contains the gamut of kids and is crowded crime is rare and minor with adequate discipline and safety. It's essential to belong to a club or school group so's not to be lost in the crowd and there are options for all interests.

    A&M Consolidated High School is truly the best school I've ever been in. It stresses academics and the school atmosphere itself is very competitive. I would really recommend this school to students who are willing to work and achieve their best.

    Sports is focused on here ( but this is Texas). There is a nice program for theatre band orchestra and art. There are also numerous clubs for these programs plus others like speech academics and many more. Parents have the option of being very involved if they choose to be. There are Booster Clubs and other parent orginazations.
