I have two sons that attend Strack, 7th & 8th grade. I am very pleased with the school, teachers, and counselors. I am in constant contact with several of the teachers and they keep me informed via phone calls and/or e-mail, as one of my sons struggles a bit. It is an excellent middle school!

My child has gone to school here almost one full year. The school seems to good. She is in all pre-AP classes and seems challenged but not overwhelmed. Tests seem fair. Teachers seem to make class interesting for her. Principal and counselor have a good attitude the few times i've had to deal with him. The other general staff you see around school is mixed, some very nice and helpful and some kind of unhappy, as I would expect having to work around teens all day. Overall, i would say this is a good school. We had trouble with a math teacher, and I was able to get my kid moved out of her class (rare). I've since heard from a lot of parents that everyone would like their kids out of her class. But out bad teacher isn't too bad. The rest are great.

As a parent of a Strack student, as well as a teacher at another school in this district, I would have to agree with earlier reviews here that Klein ISD's focus is on serious academics. If you have a child who is smart, perfectly behaved, and enjoys sitting and listening to lectures, then they will probably be successful in this district. I do not believe, however, that these are good teaching practices. Many of the teachers do not seem to care and I feel that the first step of being a good teacher is truly caring about your children's education - not just being 'highly qualified' in the subject you are teaching. My child has had a few teachers at Strack who seem to genuinely care and I am thankful for them. It would be nice if they weren't so few and far between.

I have gone to this school for three years and I cant stand it! The teachers are horrible, regular's never have work to do, pre-ap always has work we're not even learning about, the counslers are rude, and the entire atmosphere is just terrible in general. I really am excited to be going to high school next year to get out of this place!

this is a very bad school. The 6th grade students (2008) do not have appropriate language. They talk about unappropriate stuff behind the teacher.Im never coming to this school again!!!

Strack is a good school. The teachers here tell us stories that relate to their teaching to help us understand what we're learning. The kids here mostly well behaved and know when to be serious and when to relax. Although the pep rallies don't give us students motivation, our classmates, friends, teachers, and whatever motivates us to suceed through our time here.

Strack students are well behaved, well mannered, and polite. We know how to act and respect others and have a great school pride. We are challenged every day academically. Its the best school to attend.

I have 2 daughters at Strack Intermediate and it's a great school. They are challenged academically to excel and have great extra curricular activities as well. Great community school!

The foreign language program here is better than I've seen at other schools. A big part of the success lies with the teacher - Cecilia Kendall, the Spanish teacher, goes out of her way to help the kids in her classes succeed. My son took Spanish at another school last year, and came out of the class absolutely hating it. Persuaded to give foreign language another chance, he is now in Ms. Kendall's class and loving it.

The focus of this school is academic success. Teachers work diligently and tirelessly with students to assure this success. You just have to drive by the building before and after school to see activity. Parents are working, kids are working, teachers are working. There is ALWAYS something happening there.

I agree with the previous parent's observation about students that have special needs or require modifications - Strack has done a poor to fair job of educating my son. If you are a smart, well behaved student (preferable a girl) then you will have great success at Strack or any Klein ISD schools.

Strack has not done a good job supporting our ADHD child. Some teachers are outstanding in accomodating ADHD children. However, too many do not understand 504 programs for ADHD students or are just not willing to make accomodations
