    I just transferred a couple of months ago and I already love this school. I am in my sophmore year and I already met a lot of very special people. The education is great. Although a lot of teachers are coaches they still do their job very fine. I am very thankfull that I found this school and very proud to be a cavalier. Go Cavs!

    My daughter has attended there since sophomore year and is a senior now. They have good opportunities there in many areas. She took advantage of the Cosmetology program and will have her license by the time she graduates school. She loves the program. We moved here from another state so she naturally likes her old school better. She has made good friends but just like others schools too you have to watch out for the bad mix of students. Overall it's a good school with great opportunities.

    I Just moved to the woodlands texas and i attended college park my sophmore year. And to be honest i hated this school. I got straight As the education is easy. But it was very hard to make friends easy to get mixed up in the wrong crowds. There were some girls that made fun of me too just didnt like the people here. I'm glad to be transferring I'd suggest a different school.

    I am a sophomore at College Park and I have attended alot of schools in different states and districts but College Park by far is the best school I have ever attended. The teachers are amazing they push each student and give them every chance and every opportunity to excel in their classroom. Yes there are quite a number of coaches but they do their job just fine. The school expects alot from each student there is no slacking. But all in all I would never go to another school under any circumstance. College Park gives students every preparation for College and I am proud to be a Cavalier.

    My daughter is a Junior at College Park and I cannot imagine ever sending her somewhere else. She has excelled under the teachers and programs here and is going to be ready for college. What more can you ask from a school. A great campus as well.

    CPHS is a great school I'm so thankful they built it rather than continuing to over-crowd the other Woodlands high school. It's a beautiful campus there are so many opportunities for kids to be involved and the faculty are top-notch! We have had some coach teachers that did not do a good job of teaching (spanish) but my oldest is doing fantastic in college due to the preparation from the majority of TWCP teachers. Many of the teachers are tough but they care about the kids and want them to succeed.

    While the variety of classes was very good too many of the teachers and teaching methods were a disappointment. For a struggling student I found help was hard to come by. My child found the most of the kids too superficial as well. She felt more warehoused than a part of things. We moved to a smaller school when she was a sophomore and she was happier. Even though the school she ended up in is usually rated lower than College Park she learned more and is doing fine in college.

    I am a student at TWCP and I have to say..it is one of the best high schools i have been too unfortunatley the teachers and the teaching methods do need improvement. There are way too many coaches here at this school and mostly the way they teach is giving notes then a quiz then a test. There is not really much teaching involved.

    This is a great school..whoever says the academics are below their standards is incorrect. My daughter has gone to many exemplary schools in the Houston area and this is by far the best and most challenging..even as she is in all honors and AP classes. College Park High is a beautiful school with a warm intelligent staff and the kids are just as polite welcoming my daughter as a transfer student. I highly recommend this school to any parent that is picky about where their child is educated and who their peers are.

    I have been somewhat disappointed by the quality of my child's teachers many of whom are coaches. Many of these teachers minored in a subject area but their hearts are in their sports and not in the classroom. They are certainly not 'steeped' in their subject areas in most cases. Yes there are exceptions to the rule but for the most part what I'm saying is true---I have many years of teaching experience myself and can speak with some authority. Also I was hoping that he would be exposed to some of the newer experiences in learning team teaching collaborative learning projects etc. This school is 'old school' when it comes to teaching methods. As an example he did very little in the way of labs in science.
