—Submitted by a student


Posted May 25, 2007

On the plus side, lots of school pride. But academics are a joke.
—Submitted by a former student


Posted January 16, 2006

Kashmere is a great school. With great teachers, great staff, and above all great students. Kashmere is a school who concerned about their students acedemics as well as their feelings. KAshmere is a school where the learning never stops. They always have activities to help their students. This is a great school for children to be at. A happy, clean, healthy environment.

I think Kashmere is a great school and I think the Media and HISD discredits the school way too much. But this year they are working extra hard to give the title 'unacceptable' up.

The academic programs at Kashmere are so helpful my son passes with strait a's. The magnet/musical program is so wonderful and soulful, the parent involvement is so large there are so many concerned parents thats willing to give up thier time to help thier younguns. With a little push and a dab of faith Kashmere will succeed above all. Also its the safest school I have ever sent my kids to .it's a home away from home for the kids. Sincerely a proud ,concerned parent of a student that attends Kashmere Sr. High

Kashmere is an underated school that offers students ample oppertunity to become achievers acadimically. This school also allows students the experience of being in a family type school which is lacking in most schools. The educators are great and care which is not common and to me the best thing about Kashmere is its spirit for learning. I encourage any one with a child to visit Kashmere and see what it's all about you wont regret it!
