Houston Heights High School offers the TEKS Resource curriculum developed jointly by several Regional Educational Service Centers in Texas. The curriculum is completely aligned with the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills as adopted by the Texas Education Agency.


HCC Partnership

Our school offers students dual-course college credits. Students can receive credit for both college and high school at the same time. Houston Heights High School is partnered with all Houston Community College campuses. This is our memorandum of understanding.



Houston Heights High School offers individual and group tutoring sessions to every student. Several times a year, all students complete diagnostic tests which gauge their understanding of various subjects.


Students who show a need in a particular subject area are required to attend tutoring sessions that are scheduled before school, after school, and Saturday morning. The tutoring sessions are offered at no cost - thanks to our dedicated teaching staff.

Food Allergies

If your student has food allergies or sensitivity to certain chemicals or environmental factors, please let us know so we can make sure to reduce the risk of anaphylaxis. Our staff is trained to recognize food allergy symptoms, but if we know of potential food allergy risks, we can develop an individual plan. For more information about food allergies at-risk for anaphylaxis, click here. Information about other student health needs can be found here.
