Quest Early College High School is a small secondary school in unincorporated Harris County, Texas, near the city of Humble. It is a part of the Humble Independent School District and is an early college high school. Students can earn an associate degree or hours of college credit toward a bachelor's degree through Lone Star College-Kingwood along with a high school diploma.
Originally, Quest served the district as an alternative high school that offered students a smaller high school environment as opposed to the district's large schools. The school incorporated a non-traditional curriculum.
In the fall of 2010, Quest was reformatted into an early college high school, with the class of 2014 being the first students to go through the early college program.
Quest High School was in the Community Learning Center from its opening in 1995 to 2009. In the 2009–2010 school year, Quest High School moved into the Summer Creek High School building. As part of the agreement between LSC-Kingwood and Humble ISD, Quest made another move for the 2011–2012 school year to the new Lone Star College Atascocita Center and planned to move again after the end of the school year in 2016 to the Humble High School campus.
Because Quest has been reformatted into an early college high school, only students entering their freshman year are eligible for admission. A student interested in attending Quest completes an application and, with his or her parents, meets with an interview team of staff members. Parents and students are asked to sign written contracts agreeing to the school's rules and requirements. Since college credit is administered, students are required to take an admission test. The test covers their comprehension of math and English (reading and writing). The test scores decide whether students are eligible for dual credit. Quest received the international "2011 Vision in Action: The ASCD Whole Child Award."
