  • History & Memorable Moments

Alief Elsik High School is a secondary school located in the Alief region of Houston, Texas. [1]

Elsik is divided into two campuses: the main campus (12601 High Star in Houston, zip code 77072), and the Alief Elsik Ninth Grade Center (located at 6767 South Dairy Ashford, city of Houston, 77072), which serves ninth graders. Both campuses, which are in the Alief Independent School District, serve grades 9 through 12. The schools mascot is a Ram, and the school's basketball and football teams are well-known throughout Texas, as is the speech and debate team. The academic teams at Alief Elsik, Academic Decathlon, Star Academic Challenge, and various UIL organizations do participate in regional, state, and national competitions. Alief Hastings High School which is another high school sits adjacent to Elsik and is considered to be its sister school. The two schools enjoy a friendly rivalry that heats up each year in the final football game when they play each other in a shared football stadium. [1]

Opened in 1975, it is one of the largest high schools in the state. Its programs in biology and chemistry are considered the best in the Alief school district. [1]

Like its sister schools Hastings and Taylor, Elsik has followed an AB Block schedule, where the 4 classes on "A" days alternate with the 4 on "B" days. A student has 8 periods (class slots) available in total, although certain classes will take two periods. Each class period is about 90 minutes in length. This will cease with the end of the 2006-2007 school year, after which these three schools will have a seven period day. [1]

AP and Honors classes are graded on a 5.0 grading scale, while all other classes are graded on a 4.0 scale. Dual credit programs for English, Government, and Economics are also offered to seniors. [1]
