My sons school is Katy High School. It is, in my opinion, the best school in the Katy School District.

We moved her 10+ years ago and we chose katy high school for my child. They have over whelming participation with in the community support of the athletics department. Everyone supports no matter if their child is there or have moved on. They can get better (more qualified, better attitude, there to teach not for a pay check) teachers and councelors. Over all it is a great school. If ou are not active daily in your childs education and what he/she is doing daily in school this is not the school for your child. You have to stay in contact with the teachers there or your child will not reach his or her goal.

Katy High School is a wonderful school in many ways. My oldest son graduated KHS in 2008. He took all AP courses and was very active in numerous academic based activities. He was also involved in the excellent theatre department. My youngest son attends KHS now and is a high achiever as well. He is also active in various clubs. We have been pleased with the great staff support for students who want to learn and to be involved in various activities. The negative I see is that there are too many kids there who don't care and aren't interested in academic achievement.

My son is a special needs child and Katy ISD has been so very supportive in helping my son. I can't imagine a better place for him to attend and have his needs met so professionally & timely.

I went to Katy for all four years of highschool & it was a really great experience. People can say that it is only football based but that is entirely not true. Yes, football is a very successful program for the Tigers but it is only one component. Katy also has great academic, & arts programs in addition to great sports teams. It is a very comfortable environment with a social group for any personality type. I did all AP courses, graduated with a 3.9 & wasn't even top 10% which shows the academic integrity of the campus. When I went to college, I was surprised by how unprepared many other students seemed to be... did their highschools not prepare them for a continuing education like Katy did for me? Involvement in Katy was very easy & a great social tool for me. There's something to gain for all students here.

Thank God it is not just me. I was beginning to worry....Katy is the place to be if you are into football. They put way too much emphasis in to it. The kids spend so much time on the football field and training for athletics. With as much money as the kids bring in with football and all the time they put in practicing, you would think that they have mandatory tutoring sessions or something academically in place for them to show them that they really care. These kids should be taught that they are student-athletes!!! Student comes first. There is nothing in place to keep these kids on track in the classroom while they are out working for Katy! I personally know of a few Kathy athletes struggling because they are not getting the quality time in with the books. Get it together Katy! Teachers wake up! Parents wake up!

Katy High School is a good school if you are active in band, Football or any other non-academic field. They spend way too much money on the Football part of life. I have students who are not into all that extra stuff, and are in Gifted and Talented classes. The school does not even acknowledge Academic Excellents, but you can get a State Championship Ring. Overall, if you don't think Katy High School is great, just ask the parents, they think they are the best. Teachers are the same as anywhere else, nothing to brag about.

I had three children graduate from this school. I think, overall, it's a great school, but notice all reviews are from those who had academically gifted or sports/band children! Only one of my three participated in these programs, and the two who didn't, DID NOT get the same care and attention. They felt different. When they tried to start clubs for people with their interests (video), they were told there was no equipment or teaching staff to run it! You'll have to work hard as a parent to NOT have them fall through the cracks.....ALL students need to feel a part of the campus - and unless they play football (or participate in its ancillary entertainment)....Good Luck!

I have a daughter that is a senoir and a son that is a freshman at Katy High School. Both kids are very involved in both academic and extracurricular activities and they love it. When you visit the school or attend an event everyone is so nice and friendly, like one big family. I liked the school so much I quit my coorporate job and went to work for the district just so I could spend more time volunteering at the school. Katy has a great athletic program that not only allows the students to gain physical activity, but promots leadership, teamwork and academics. Katy High School is a great place for any student to get a good education.

Yes, the booster program does get quite abit of money, because of the football program but please note it's an athletic booster club and all sports benefit (including band). We are quite fortunate. Go Tigers! As a parent with band students, a football player, a volleyball player, and all are in the advance academic programs- I must say Katy has helped create well rounded students that have an excellent future ahead of them.

I have a student at this school. The only issues that I have are that they put to much importance on football. My son plays but I can not believe how much money is in the booster club. It seems that money could be better used for educational needs. Also not much help from the counselors. Students feel very on their own in this area. The school is clean and pretty safe though! Small town feel.
