I just got a job teaching in the Conroe School District and we are relocating. My oldest is going to be a sophomore. He has a bit of dyslexia and has been in a Public charter that was project based and high tech. I am not seeing anything like that as I browse the available schools. He's coming from Idaho, a huge school is not ideal but something with a flexible or non traditional structure is preferred. If we can't find that, does anyone have suggestions about schools north of Houston? Even high schools to avoid? We are moving next week but can rent for awhile. Thanks for any help!

The Woodlands HS is a good school, the same is College Park,( we have 2 HS in TW) . Oak Ridge HS is not bad, more diversity than TW HS. College Park and Oak Ridge have very good STEM programs and classes.
Stay away from Conroe HS, not good school. There's Montgomery HS in Lake Conroe( not CISD) which is very good. Smaller student/teacher class ratio. And new HS is opening in Lake Conroe area. Willis HS is not good, even It's getting better.
Spring area across I45 is opening new HS Grand Oaks, should be good.
My friend had a child with dyslexia in Oak Ridge, and she loved the teacher's help. I think, that in general, CISD works well with kids and parents, my son had all kind of accommodations thru CISD schools and did good.
I believe, there's a charter(?) school next to Lone Star College in TW, but don't know anything about it.

The schools are really big here, pretty much everywhere in Spring, Conroe area.

Except of accommodations, I don't find public school system "flexible". You would have to look at private schools.
