Summer Creek High School (SCHS) is a high school in unincorporated Harris County, Texas and a part of the Humble Independent School District. It serves several areas, including Summerwood and Fall Creek, the two neighborhoods that the school get its name from.[1]

Built to relieve the overcrowded Atascocita HS and Humble HS, SCHS is approximately 435,000 square feet (40,400 m2) and is a comprehensive, ninth through twelfth grade high school for 3,200 students; The campus has athletic facilities and playing fields, an auditorium, a natatorium, a career and vocational education facilities, a food court and a learning resource center. There is also parking for students, staff, and visitors. SCHS is located at 14000 Weckford Boulevard, near the intersection of Beltway 8 and West Lake Houston Parkway.

Principal[edit]

Trey Kraemer, an Atascocita resident who had been serving as principal of Sterling High School in Goose Creek CISD, was named principal during the summer of 2008.[2] In the summer of 2011, the job was passed over to former AMS and WMS principal, Thyrun Hurst. Nolan Correa has served as principal beginning in 2014.

Design[edit]

Summer Creek High School incorporates a Frank Lloyd Wright style to the exterior facade. The floor plan of Summer Creek is similar to Atascocita High School's, which uses the house system, or smaller learning communities. Each student will be assigned to a "house" in which they will work with an Assistant Principal-Counselor pair for all four years at the school. Core classes (Math, Science, English, and Social Studies) will be attended in that house, but electives will be located in a special wing of the school. The district believes this concept will make a rather large high school feel like a small one.

Quest High School, the district's alternate high school, moved into one of the houses at Summer Creek starting in August 2009. The school has now moved out of Summer Creek High School.
