Houston High School Preview Night- Thursday, January 27, 2022
Our team at Houston High School have joined forces with our student Mustang Mentors to present a safely-distanced, in-person event that will personalize your experience on:
Thursday, January 27th from 6pm-8pm
We are offering several informational sessions at the in-person event. You and your child will go to a total of four sessions based on their specified level of interest indicated in the registration link. Following the tour night, a video/virtual version of each session will be emailed to all attendees. So, you won't have to 'miss' anything! Please indicate your interest in each session.
You will pick FOUR of these sessions.
