Amount of homework: Disagree

It's very competitive so everyone is trying to get the upper hand so often that brings the worst out of people characteristically but academically not. It's obvious that this is true because basically majority of the teachers in the district try to transfer to this school because they know the students are very driven. I had a lot of teachers who said they were waiting for a teaching position here to open so they could leave their previous school in the district and work here.

Honestly I have read what some of the comments have said about the school saying that there are issues with drugs, racism, and bullying and it's pretty clears that in almost every big high school there are issues like that. Majority of big schools are going to have some form of bullying, racism, and definitely some alcohol/drug abuse. So to assume that a public high school is completely free of that is pretty naive. This school is extremely competitive since this is a pretty wealthy community so parents invest very heavily into their children either through extracurricular activities, academics, or both. In contrast to other schools this one will definitely prepare you for college just don't hang with the wrong crowd a basic rule in every school/ place.

The drugs, bullying, and racial slurs are "covered up". It is ridiculous in this day and age for these behaviors to be accepted.

You cannot take advantage of a more excellent school than this one. So many bright students that want to challenge themselves. Teachers and classes can get tough, especially in English.

I LOVE MY SCHOOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Most everyone has a fabulous attitude and I am really learning about myself and what is best for me. The academics are crazy challenging, everyone is so competitive at everything they do from golf to french club to GPA to class rank. Almost all of our sports are in the top five in the state. Highlights are Band, Swimming and Diving, Cross Country, Basketball, and Fillies. Teachers are willing to listen and help you. Drugs are not a problem AT ALL if you know who to avoid. There is no bullying and everyone is big family no matter what the grade. Please dont bash the school, we love it and its taken a lot of work to get where we are! <3

My three kids have gone to Kingwood Highschool and all have had great experiences .

Both of my kids graduated for KHS. Both graduated college. One had 2/3 scholarship from sports and acedemics. Didn't have any drug problems. It is competetive but there is a lot to be involved in.

I moved to Kingwood just prior to my senior year, and as one would guess, I was very upset. HOWEVER, Kingwood High was an excellent experience from me. The people were extremely friendly, especially for an affluent area. I made so many friends and had tons of fun. The academics were very challenging, but looking back now, I realize it prepared me for college. Almost all of the athletic programs are among the state's elite. Move here if you want your children to be in competition in either academics, sports, or fine arts, and if you want them to graduate from a high school that has a very good reputation amongst all Texas universities, and even nation-wide.
