This school is awesome. The atmosphere is inviting, the teachers care, the Principal is seen and not hidden, the Asst Principal cares for the students and the Staff is friendly and very helpful. My son improved in every aspect of his education. They helped fight with me to get the help my son needed to succeed. I appreciate the school and their willingness to help and their overall concern about the education and well being of the students. And many functions to attend. Great job keep up the good work WE family.

Very good School with huge land to expand. Outstanding Principal, Vice Principal, Teachers and Staff that will make your child be a Star and succeed in every aspect of their life. Strong academic program, discipline, values, creativity everywhere, building math, science, music, art and reading fans plus giving you the opportunity thru open activities to see your child's improvement and learning experiences. Strong Parent and Community involvement . Tell them your talent and they'll have something for you to help on. Here at Wolfe they know me by name, they really care about my children and us, believe me, you'll feel it when you come in! I'm sure they are no more words needed to tell you what a great School and blessing Wolfe is for our Family!.

Wolfe is an amazing find that no one knows about. The teachers and administration are dedicated and kind. Because it is in Katy ISD and yet on the edge of Harris County it is out of the way and has a small student populationa and teacher ratio. This allows a small community feeling with the power of KISD funding behind it.

This school is special. It has a low enrollment, small class size, a laid back atmosphere, nestled on 22 acres of land on the fringes of Katy ISD. The principal and teachers are very nice to work worth and its a safe place to attend.

Low parental involvement. Older building. Katy ISD school. Inclusion of all children in classrooms.

Posted April 1, 2005

The attention and care that has been given to my child has been tremendous. They are all very concerned about my individual child's performance and truly care about my childs progress. Because additional help 'tutoring' was needed it was provided by an excellent staff of teachers who are true to their profession and put all their talents and resourses to work. Just by the way my child took to all the professionals at the school, I knew that she was being well cared for and she would not get left behind or left out.
