South Houston High School

Aerospace, medical, energy and maritime trade: the Houston area economy has opportunities that pay well and offer an on-ramp to the American Dream.

Students at Pasadena ISD have access to early-college and career-and-technology programs that can prime them for Houston’s unique mix of opportunities.
