Placement testing will be rescheduled when it is safe to move within our community.
As a reminder, any student wishing to take a course beyond Algebra 1 (including Pre-AP Algebra 1) must take the math placement test. Any student who previously took Spanish or Latin and plans to continue at HC must take the placement test, even if they plan to start in Spanish 1 or Latin 1. The Foreign Language department would like a base-line for all students.
Please contact the HC Counseling office at 713-580-6099 if you have any questions.

'I had a group I ate lunch with called the "Lunch Bunch," which met in Mr. Lister's classroom. Mr. Lister liked to call us "the vultures." Mr. Lister was always available after school for discussion and has been a source of wisdom and advice in my important decisions and biblical questions. He constantly encouraged me to read the Word daily and research my questions to ensure I had the right conclusion and thought process. I learned the value of questioning and striving to be a lifelong learner. I hope to carry the wisdom of Mr. Lister into college and the years after."
