My daughter has almost completed her 1st year 6th grade at Kreuger Middle and she is in the KSAT program. 1st year of middle school is usually a tought time, transitioning from elementary to middle school but I guess my daughter was lucky she had a great year, she said she was not ever bullied, she made lots of friends that she would have never met had we chose to stay at our home school. Looking forward to 7th and 8th. So glad we made the decision to got to KSAT

I am a seventh grader at the school. I know how everyone seems to be saying that they have been bullied. So have I, but no one really knows unless I tell them. I have been ignored and made fun of, so yes, my grades are low, and I am extremely shy, and some might even say "Derpy". I just want to say that there are people out there who care. I was lucky enough to find a few. Keep hanging on, and do not ever EVER let go.

Me and my sister only attended for one year because of the location of our home. Let me tell you this, most of the kids are extremely rude. Me and my sister have been bullied over such stupid and petty things. It blows my mind how rude some of these kids were to me. I was with the regular kids which had most of the rude ones. However my sister was in one of the better programs ksat, but was bullied there more than I was. I would of given this a one but the teachers there did their best to teach.

As a teacher at Krueger Middle School, I am well aware of the fantastic things Krueger has to offer, such as the magnet programs, great teachers and a caring staff. I am also aware that Krueger is a school that is moving the students toward academic success through positive rewards and hard work on the part of the teachers. It is a new chapter for Krueger and I invite you to visit to witness it yourself.

I hesitate to tell you that one of the reasons that this program is located at Krueger is to enable the school achieve higher scores on required state academic testing. My son was bullied in the hallways constantly and when I reported it, the administration did NOTHING, so we withdrew...but not until after I had several meetings with them. Unfortunately, the behavior of a lot of the students in the "general population" body is abhorrent and it seems there is not much the staff can do about it. Ask to visit the campus during school hours and observe.

my daughter goes to kmac, and we both are thrilled with the teachers here. they make sure that students understand the work they need to do, if not they are willing to tutor before or afterschool. just wish she could go here for high school also next year. not thrilled with high school she would need to go to.

My son has been in the KSAT program for 3 years now. The KSAT program itself is wonderful. The teachers are excellent; the KSAT leadership is responsive; the academic programs are more challenging than most San Antonio middle schools. Parents should be aware, however, that KSAT students are mixed with the general population in PE, Band, and Lunch. This has been an awful experience for the past three years. We constantly have things stolen (gym uniforms, cell phones, watches, etc.) with no attempt by the school to record this or catch those stealing. My son has been beaten up my the regular population of students on several occasions so we had to put him in a martial arts class to protect him. Lunch time is, frankly, an unsupervised zoo. Attempts to have issues addressed outside of the KSAT program have met with indifference.

i am KSAT as a sixth grader and it is the greatest experience of my life. Our teachers actually understand you and they try to help with any at home problems. And when you are their you take G'T and PreAp classes. When you are in Krueger you feel just like at home and the new ppl you meet seem like you have known them your whole life. In the programs you can be yourself and show ppl what you can really achieve and nobody criticizes you about it so i recommend this school to everyone i am so happy that i did not go to Nimitz.

Krueger is the only middle school that I know in all of San Antonio with TWO magnet programs structured into it. I know I've lived in SA all my life. There's the magnet program of iMAK (forgot what is stands for) and the one I went to KSAT (said: kay-sat) (Krueger School of Applied Technologies). KSAT is more towards engineering, architecture, aersospace, aeronautics, some technology and all core classes; Math, English, Science, etc... All classes in KSAT are Pre-AP(advanced placement) or if your qualified GT(gifted and talented). When you're here you feel like a big family. Theres just enough students to know everyone in your grade level in KSAT. All classes take part in one big evenly spread out fun projects throughout the year. The teachers are all nice and the students are dedicated and we all treat each other with respect. It's a nice, safe, and educational enviroment.

The KSAT program is one of the best I have experienced in public school. It would be a great disservice to our children if it did not exist. The teachers are some of the best I have had the pleasure of dealing with. They have high expectations and that is what our children needed, something they don't get in all class settings. I know that my children will be well prepared for high school. Sometimes I feel that other parents expect too little from their children, but I leave the teaching to the professionals.

I am a true blue Krueger Falcon. The Magnet programs are out of this world. The teachers/staff/admin. are doing everying they can to get our children ready for the rest of there acadimic career. If you have any doubts, please go talk to the school, and meet some of the teachers. By days end you will know that this is where your child needs to go. Many new things are going on, and it's going to get even better.

im going to seventh. Krueger Middle School is great, and the magnet programs are outstanding! In KSAT the teachers will give the students time out of there free time to help let the student understand the concepts. KSAT is a Pre-Ap and G-T program. The students must have all Pre-Ap classes and if there fifth grade GT teachers reccomends that they have GT math and english, they have a choice. Now one of the biggest part of KSAT is rockets, rockets, rockets!!! In sixth grade the students first make a bottle rocket made of a coke bottle, ping-pong ball and other various items. the make a kr-1 rocket which is a small version of the big-bertha. the big bertha is the last rocket the sixth grade students will build in the school year. KSAT also is about aeronautics. the studenhts make gliders, airplanes and other various contraptions. Learn more at www.neisd.net/krueger.

kruegers teaching staff is excellent, we were impressed with the opportunity our child has to participate in such a great program. our daughter is enrolled in 6th grade and she loves the subjects. no where else can you get so much. the only thing: your child has to be strong and prepared to face the other children. it is shocking what is going on in that area. the school tries very hard to keep it in order but it is impossible and everyday almost, there is another shocking story. it is just that area of town. We will miss the school but not the violence and drama. Young children should not be around this if you can avoid it.

My child is in the KSAT magnet program which is excellent. I'm sorry to hear that Mr. Rogers will no longer be the director, but he will be the AP on the main campus. This should help the overal campus. He did a great job running two magnet programs by himself.

Although the iMAK program is great, most of the students are seriously lacking in motivation. My son has attended iMAK since 6th grade, and while he loves most of his teachers, he is often ridiculed for striving for excellence. I agree with a previous review that many of the kids at this school just simply aren't very nice. On the other hand, Mr. Beck, Mr. Johanssen, and other teachers like them make iMAK a great technology program overall.

Ksat is the greatest magnet program that anyone can think of. I mean who doesn't want a smart child who also can build a rocket from scratch and make it fly to 500 feet?! I love it and hope my sister will be able to attend as well. The teachers care and take time to explain. Plus, there are so many cool projects, in the 6th grade we built catapults in 7th you get to design and make a CO2 car and in the 7th grade the most fun is learning how to fly an airplane (with Microsoft flight simulator). WHat about all those cool field trips! There's one to corpus christi to see the u.s.s. Lexington, fiesta texas, the challenger center, and at the end of the year in 8th grade we get a chance to fly up to washington d.c. and new york city for 4 days!!

Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
