I have a son who attends King High School and so far he likes the school and the curriculum. I like this school because the teachers do care and if his teachers have any problems they let me know so I can take care of the problem at home. I believe that the students should be accountable for their education as well as the teachers and parents. I love the fact that the kids are getting prepared for college and the work force. I have read some of the other reviews and I was surprised at some of the comments about the dress code. You need to learn to follow the dress code now because when you enter the workplace you will need to be in dress code there or you will be sent home without pay and in som companies failure to adhere to the dress can be grounds for immediate suspension or termination. Discipline is a great at KHS and I want them to continue to enforce rules and the kids will see the affects of this when they become adults. Keep up the good work KHS staff and administrators.

"The teachers are attentive and totally do nothing to hinder learning in terms of idiotic disciplinary actions nor punishing the entire student body for the actions of a few. Teachers are never apathetic or condescending, to the students and respect them as young adults, never taking out their lack of a teaching ability or downfalls out on the students. This school is fantastic! And please allow your child the opportunity to learn at this fine institution of learning like I did."

I am a graduate of C. E. King HS and my son will be graduating in 2012. C. E. King HS is not a bad school. School is what you make it. Sheldon ISD is only trying to make a safe and pleasant enviornment for the student to learn and be comfortabel. First of all teacher's and administrator should not have do what partent need to do as for as Discipline... that starts at home!!! We need more parent involoemnet in our schools. It's always the parents that are not involved complaining. We have some great kids in Sheldon and they are get the best education but it up to them to want to learn and be the best they could be. The teacher's and staff in our District is AWESOME!!! they go above and beyond to make sure our child are getting the best education possible. Thanks you,

I am currently attending C.E. King high and plan to graduate with the class of 2012. So far in my education i have improved because all the teachers that i had in the past all pushed me to do my best and if i had questions i would ask and they would explain in depth. The teens who are failing out are the ones that don't try and don't even want to be in school and this makes our school look bad on the schools grades. I don't blame the teachers i blame the students. Yes they concentrate on dress code but later in the year they no longer care as much. Also the teachers punish the teens if they talk back or being disrespectful well its simple because the teens don't respect the teachers and if they don't get discipline at their house then the teachers have to assigned them d-halls or iss because of their attitudes.

WORST SCHOOL EVER! Do NOT send your children there! They will never learn anything! & They will only get in trouble for the most stupidest things! These "teachers" all they care about is dress code, they show no concern what so ever on the kid's education! I lived it & still am living it. I absolutely think this school deserves NO stars as a rating. -__-

I used to go to C E King and I hated that school. The only thing good about that school was there food. Loved the food and the ROTC program. C E King is missed up if you go there you have to watch the teachers because alot of the time they dont count you there. Thats how i lost half a credit and had to take that class again even if I passed which I did. They dont teach you good alot of the teachers expect you to know the lesson on the first try. They are to crazy about dress code. I got a detention for wearing a schol shirt on wednesday and it said c e king on it. Also were IDs if you didnt have your ids you either call someone to find and bring it or buy a new one which was five bucks or go to iss for a day. I hated that school being there from middle school to half a second semester of my sophomore year I moved to North Shore Senior High which is an amazing school i love it they teach you, no dress code, the teachers talk to you and they really help you. If you are planing to go to school around that part of Houston go to North Shore Senior High its only 10 to 15 minutes away from C E King.

Im a former graduate from this school and my son just recently graduated in 2007. I do feel this school did not prepare me or my son for the college career.. I feel they take small things to the extreme without thinking about their students future...

I so totally agree with the school being way to into hair, dress, and piercings, whatever it may be. They absolutely are not all that great on academics but anyway I do have to say that the coaches, my son plays footbal their, they're wonderful, tough on the boys for sure, because if they aren't gonna be tough on them and put them and keep them in there places; who will? We can only do so much here at home,when they get to school, we need someone tough on our kids. I feel like as long as they pursue they're education, as long as they aren't showing of their buisness, breasts, butts, stomaches, etc. that they shouldnt worry about looks, at least they aren't into drugs and they do ultimately care about their future. Teachers, get off our kids butts about what they look like and do your job, teach them.

I am former student of king high school I attended from my sophmore year to my graduating date. I wouldn't blame the teachers for not preparing us for college. The sheldon administration is vixin they are so preoccupied with their reputation of being a safe school is ridiculouse the anount of money they spend on constables. I could deal with dress code because of the fact that there are many unfortunate kids atting the school cannot afford name brand clothing.Over all I have really good memories of the faculty and my fellow classmates If i could I would do it again. Hopefully one day I can go back and change what sheldon has become today and change their ideal of what school should be, and not feard by TAKS, but a journey of what is ahead of you.

This school has gone downhill for several years. It continuously goes downhill. The administration, by no fault of theirs, cannot get a handle on these out of hand children. They have no morals and the parents are absolutely not involved enough to care.

Im a student at ce king I hate this school. All they worry about is dress code and respecting teachers. Teachers are very disrespectful and don't help students when needed. If you are looking for a new school don't come here.

I am a current student at C.E King High, I will be graduating this year. I moved to Houston from Atlanta, Georgia. I honestly think that, the dress code is ridiculous. They focus more on TAKS and discipline. I have always struggled in math and my school in all honesty is not helping my problem. Some of the teachers expect you to uunderstand a lesson the first time given.

As a former graduate of CE King, I have been greatly dissappointed with my son's High School Days. Until his Senior year it did not seem he had any of those real teacher's that really cared about teaching. The whoe school education since elemetar has focused on TAKS and not concerned with teaching the basics. Early developing classes(elemntary) rushed through most things and sent most work for homework, which made me feel like I was the teacher. Uniforms for dress code was anothe ridiculous bright idea the powers that be came up with, then they finally let them at least start wearing jeans. AP classes have not put my son on the level of eduation I would like to see him.

C.E KIng was a horrible school, but things are starting to turn around. Dress Code is not as much of a big factor, and the classes we have are harder and more challenging. Ipersonally have been an A-B student all my life, and this year I have a D in Pre- AP Chemistry and Spanish 2. I hope things continue to Improve here.

C. E. King is easily one of the worst schools out there. The education is seriously lacking. All the administration is worried about is dress code, and the TAKS test is crammed into our second semester TEKS. It's ridiculous how this school is run.

I am a current student of C.E.King High school and I don't agree with any of the rules they punish us for,they care more about the dress code than the education.They really don't want to understand your problem about getting to class,the real problem is the back hallway is always crowded because some students stand around and talk but the AP's don't care what the situation is they'll give you a D-hall even if it's not your fault,they don't care!I wouldn't recommend anyone go to this school,I wouldn't if I didn't have to,but we all have to do things we don't want to.

I recently graduated from King and i must say that i enjoyed my time there! I am attending a University now and feel prepared. I loved my high school and all the teachers there, it's a great place to learn and have fun. It isn't the schools fault if a few kids don't apply themselves, or attempt to follow the rules. I loved the principals, teachers, constables, and staff, they made me feel like I was at home!

I am a recent graduate of C.E. King High School and King is only focused on getting the students to pass the TAKS test. King does NOT prepare you for college-I took AP as well-its basically a joke. The students/community is not motivated to strive beyond the 'Sheldon' life. The school district doesn't look for opportunities that could greatly benefit the talented students. They should invest in motivating students with other extracurricular/academic activities.

My son attends CE King High School. I am very disappointed in this school. I understand the concept of the dress code but it should not be the main focus. The punishments for small things are taken to the extreme. There is little or no communication between the staff and parents. The safety of every child that walks or has to ride a bike to school is not taken seriously. If I had a choice my son would never again attend this school.

I graduated at the top of my class from C.E. King High School a few years ago, & recently graduated from a university. Although I took all the AP courses offered at C.E. King, I later found that they were weak in material, and prepared me very little for college. I compared what fellow college class mates learned in their H.S. & found that while they were learning in college things that they had already seen in high school, I was introduced to the material for the first time, and therefore felt that my learning background had put me at an automatic disadvantage. This was in all subject areas. Ultimately, the goal at King was to get students to pass the TAKS & graduate, with no emphasis on taking the SAT & going to college. I would not recommend attending if you are serious about preparing for college, If I could-I-would-not-have-gone-there.

This school my son goes to is a great place the teachers are highly and proffesionaly experienced but I think the problem is not our childrens grades is the environment and the rules this school imposes on them for example my son tells me that they worry too much about the dress code and less about their grades another thing is that when my son is late that the principles or teachers dont care if they come all the way from another class they need more time other than that the school is alright

My daughter goes to C.E king High School the hole time last year she had nothing but problems about who her friends were or what she was wearing nothing did she ever get in trouble about her studys. I think the school system needs to worry about the kids studys not about thier clothen. I don't know about other parents but I send my kids to school to learn so they can get somewhere in life with thier eduction. Kids worry enough about what they look like they don't need the school on thier back . They need to put more attchen to the gang activity in the school and the kids that are always fighting about race and who is better than the other.They need to have more activities for the kids in school.

I have had two children at King. One graduated in 2000 and has gone on to a great position with UT Medical Branch. He was well prepared for his position in the real world. My younger child has had health issues and will not attend King after this year, but from the time he was there, he had wonderful caring teachers.

I am a former student. I graduated May 31,1991. This was the best school I could have gone to. I have many lasting memories. The faculty here, in part, made me the person I am today(a registered nurse). I will look back on my high school days fondly for the rest of my life. Sincerely, Melissa {Jodi) Collins. Class of 1991
