Thank you Houston Press for recognizing a school and principal that is a unique and significant landmark in HISD's repertoire. T.H. Rogers is not only different for its student population of deaf, multiply impaired and gifted & talented kids, but for the mixture of socio-economic and cultural aspects as well. Kudos to HISD for providing this environment for such a diverse group of kids to interact and learn from one another.
Best School - 2010
Somehow, T.H. Rogers keeps coming up with great principals who embody the school's unique mission. That mission involves melding two distinct populations: Vanguard students who attend the gifted-and-talented magnet program from kindergarten through eighth grade, and deaf and multiply impaired students of all ages. Managing things can be a tricky adventure requiring lots of patience, but principal David Muzyka manages it, most of the time with a smile. The school continues to turn out terrific kids who go on to do great things, and who have benefited greatly from their Rogers experience.
