Barbers Hill High School Celebrated as a “Cool School”

Barbers Hill ISD makes sure its students graduate ready to jump-start their careers by building strong relationships with local industries. These local partnerships provide students with opportunities to earn certificates before graduating from high school. Houston Life covered this story on a recent “Cool Schools” segment to highlight the impact of connection between the community and school’s CTE program.

Area hospitals provide students with hands-on experiences in the medical field.  Local petrochemical plants allow students to train in a real-life facility and experience real-life situations. They offer mentorship and feedback on projects. Barbers Hill High School’s newly renovated shop facilities provide a great workplace for a growing welding and woodworking program. 

These relationships are just one reason why Barbers Hill High School representatives say they’ve been named a U.S. News and World Reports Best High School for 3 years in a row.
