I'm a new student here at Klein Forest & so far the year has been getting better and better. Before I came here I heard many rumors saying that Klein Forest was "ghetto". I'm 9 weeks into this school year and from my experiences, those rumors have been completely proven wrong. Of course there are the group of kids that don't care for school, but then again which school doesn't have that? This is a very old school compared to the previous one I was enrolled in, but to my surprise Klein Forest is huge. I was expecting graffiti on the walls & chipping paint, but the school could pass as a top of the line campus. I am definitely looking forward to my next few years here at Klein Forest. I've heard of fist fights breaking out, but I haven't seen any. This school is somewhat diverse, but it could be argued. Minorities are the majority here. (Hispanics & African-Americans) There's only a handful of caucasian people and honestly, they're so scarce here that they stand out. Not that it matters, but maybe you were intersted. Overall, Klein Forest is an above average school.

Anybody who is anybody who watches the news may know us as that school with all those hood kids or that ghetto school. Our school is not ghetto at all it is actually a pretty good school. They have some really good programs at my school and the principle is doing her best to change some things there. I think the school improve by sort there money out better instead of putting it all towards one thing that is actually not that important to us. We could build a stadium, so we could a little nicer and stop being called the poorer ghetto Klein school.

My son just graduated from Klein Forest and had a wonderful four years.... he's an incoming freshman engineering major at Texas A&M. KF has a special engineering recruiting program with A&M. All of these kids got scholarships and loads of help. The socio-economic makeup of KF scare people away from this school, but both my son and my daughter (who will be a senior) have both had amazing experiences. Music program is top-notch and the quality of education has been fine. Bottom-line: They will work with your child if they want to be involved in multiple activities and you don't have to deal with spoiled, over-privileged children and their helicopter parents. At the end of the day, ... being at a low-income school has its advantages -- even if you can afford to move a few miles away to a "better" school. My children know what the real-world is about and truly appreciate the advantages they've been given.

As a student here at KF that transferred from another public school, but in a different state, the expectations for this school was not met. Very big school, but the students and teachers are not at their best. Teachers that teach regular classes, don't even give effort to push their students and only give them the minimal work because they underestimate them. Seeing fights here are a daily routine and being able to learn to the best of my ability was not an option while attending KF high school. The teachers could barley handle their students and was causing me to not being able to learn because of all the yelling and screaming.

I am about to become a senior at KF and as the years have passed, there have been more and more fights going on. At this point, it is absolutely ridiculous. I couldn't even eat lunch in peace because of all of the food fights going on by the last week of school. It is starting to become a regular procedure for all of the students to be dismissed by floors instead of all at once out of the fear that another fight might break out. Don't get me wrong, the majority of the teachers here are awesome and extremely dedicated to their students. Some examples would be Dr. LaFave, Mrs. Sun and many more. The AP and Dual Credit programs and exceptional and the assistant principals and really trying to control the wilder part of the student body. When it comes to this school it's not the teachers that are a major problem, it's those certain students that don't find any satisfaction sitting in a classroom but instead find that feeling in the streets.

I attended this school from 1993 through 1997. I felt compelled to write a review so as readers can get a sense of what a graduate 15 years removed thinks of KF. The most disappointing I recall was that my career counselor, while very friendly during my four years, did not encourage me to challenge myself when it came to applying for colleges. When I told her that I only applied to USC and UT-Austin (I got into both), she was shocked that I did not apply to a lower caliber school and began pushing me towards UH, UH-Downtown or HCC. Perhaps she knew that the school did not adequately prepare me to succeed. College and law school were a challenge, and I would not confuse KF with a college prep school. I would not credit any success I've had since graduation to my education at KF. It did, however, have a variety of extra-curriculars, and placed an emphasis on athletics. I remember that many of us had dedicated teachers who seemed genuinely interested in our learning. However, that said, I think KF did an acceptable job of educating its students to simply meet the Texas high school recommended program and push its graduates out the door. I would not send my children here.

I am so glad that I placed my daughter in this school. She just finished her Freshman Year and she excelled in her academics and thrived as a Sports Trainer. She loves and respects her peers and teachers. I know that the past history of the school but I truly give all praises to the New Principle and her staff and it truly is sorring like EAGLES! I look forward to the next three years.

Klein Forest leadership lacks the ability to make KF into a school that suceeds. It has an abundance of incompetence and it's really hard to find individuals who truly care about the welfare of the students and their academic success.

I am writing as an unsatisfied senior who's optimism for his own future dwindles everyday within the enrollment of this school; My main reason for writing this review is to fulfill a duty I have been carrying on my shoulders, which is to inform the world of the unsatisfactory principles involving this school. The teachers are less involved with the students than they would be to a bagger at a grocery store, the student body here is extremely superficial, and the infrastructure of this school is ill-maintained. This school has unsatisfied the thirst I have to reach higher for my future goals, and I surely wouldn't allow my children to come to such a school as this.

Because it's very diverse and once a child/children leave Klein Forest they are equiped to deal with different people and cultures. All kinds of subjects, courses and activities are offered. The child/children have a wide range of career choices once leaving. They are given the ability to be a well round person with teachers and staff members who give 100% each and every day. Showing and teaching the students that they have the power to be the next world leader.

Klein Forest High School has to be one of the best schools providing a quality to an absolutly highly diverse large school (3,557 students). Our students believe in themselves are empowered to make proper choices, participate in school activities/organizations and our community is becoming stronger/supportive every day. I like our faculty, our students, and our direction.

I am so happy that my son attends Klein Forest. He has now been at KF 1 1/2 years and moving him to this school was a really good move. The teachers are the best and the principal and house principals are tops. They truely care about your kids. The Ag Dept is tops! I am really impressed at the student participation in extra curicular activities. Way to go KF. Now we need more parent participation. If you are not active in your childs life, don't complain.

I am a student at Klein Forest High School. Klein Forest is very different from all the other school in many different ways.We have more school wide activities our school is more involved with our activities. We are like one big family. Some people go off of what other people tell them.. Klein Forest is a 'ghetto' school they are 'hoodlums' they dont want to make anything of them selves and all they want to do is 'smoke weed and sell drugs' we dont want them at our school they are 'bad kids'. I heard these words with my own ears come out of some peoples mouth.Klein Forest is not like that it is really a good school!!

My daughter is a current student attending Klein Forest, if you truely want your son or daughter to suceed in life do not send your child here. She has 7 classes and only 3 out of those seven are certified teachers, the rest are subs. Talk about a learning enviroment. To me that is a big disadvatage, so take my word do not send your child to this school or you will be in the same boat I am in, trying to teach my daughter french because she has no teacher.

We just moved to the district and experienced the enrollment process at Klein Forest. Although there was a lot of paperwork involved, everyone was great! The atmosphere was a bit chaotic, but I was greeted by smiles and people who wanted to help. On the first day of school, my child came home from school with homework! It seems that this staff is on the ball, and is serious about teaching. I'm so glad that we made the choice to move, and specifically, so that we could attend this district. My child has already made several friends, and is looking forward to the next day.

I go to KF, it's a GREAT school with our new Principal, Mr. Lakin, the school has really changed for the better. In addition, Mr. Lakin is very down-to-earth with the students making a day at school (or the principal's office) more enjoyable.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.
