My daughters went to this school and I found this school to be amazing. teachers are more than helpful and the principal is very attentive with the kids. Any issues that arose while my daughters were there, it was properly discussed and taken care of.

My son attended this school and it was a nightmare. He was in the pre-k program and the HISD teacher called repeatedly for the most minute things like not coloring a picture or coloring outside the lines. She immediately wanted conferences with the principal, for little things. Early on she hung up on my, and at one point she left a message stating that I was either too incompotent, or incapable of completing the homework correctly. Being a teacher myself, I know what the criteria is for parent teacher relations, and I also know the process of documenting a student out of a school, or into a category of special ed. I really believe this teacher was incapable of handling my son because he was a typical rambunctious 4 year old. I also believe she behaved this way because we are black. I didn't want to believe it but I now do. He now hates school because of this teacher, and I wouldn't put him throught that again. Ketelson is a good school for parents that need someone to tell them how to parent, and don't mind being bullied.
