We have been thoroughly unimpressed with the quality of academic programs at Klein Oak.
As a former student, I can vouch for the quality of the teachers: they are engaging, highly intelligent, and thoughtfully present the information at a challenging rate. That said, the concentration on sports and the TAKS test in recent years is appalling, as well as the stratification of the student body in recent years and the distinct economic gap between certain other schools in the district and Klein Oak. My only other complaint is the lack of freedom in individual student's lives: freedom of thought and action are somewhat suppressed. Still, a truly great student may excel despite such restrictions. I graduated early, but I enjoyed the first two years here and firmly believe I received the best education and had the best high school experience that I could have. Academically and socially, this school is probably the best you can send your child to.
As a parent the school has been a total dissapointment. The teachers don't hold the students accountable, and they don't inform parents of unacceptalbe behaviour. In Humble you can go online and see what the kids grades are in realtime, here you can't. There are too many examples to incompetence to list.
Fairly good school from what I have seen so far. Only drawbacks are some teachers, huge economic gap, and some of the scheduling conflicts.
This school is a very prestigous school! Won several awards and respected very much! This school also has the IB programme which is a very excellent program! I give it 2 thumbs up!
This school is a good school if your child can learn and process information at a high level.
Klein oak has jumped in their academic programs. The school is full of spirit to celebrate our state champion volleyball team, our football teams winning streak, the track teams continuous winnings and our national champion Strutters dance/drill team. Klein Oak is really an awesome place to be a student of.
Klein Oak is part of the Klein School District, which is well known for its excellence. Klein Oak offers a broad range of extracurricular activities, great teachers, and a safe environment. As a former student, most of my classmates went on to some of the best universities in the country.
Klein Oak is a good high school. The school was chosen for the International Baccalaureate program in Klein ISD which attracts some students who want to be challenged. Extracurricular activities are numerous although they could improve in public relations to sell their programs to the public.
Klein Oak used to be one of the premiere schools in the state of Texas, but things have changed dramatically in the last few years. The school district spends too much time on athletics of other schools and worrying about TAKS than helping teachers in the classroom and funding electives to get more kids involved in school. Parents need to step in and get more involved before it's too late.
Klein Oak high School is the superlative of every other school in the nation. It is the epitome of how well a high school should cope and should tryed to be emulated by all schools in the nation. I reccommend all parents to highly consider this school as a prospect for your children and or another of its standards.
My son used to attend Klein Oak high school. One day I visited the school and I was not impressed. The school is racially and economically divided. In some schools teachers actually want the kids to learn the curriculum. In this school [Klein Oak] all the teachers are worried about is the TAX [test]. I wanted to inform the rest of the klein district that it is just not worth sending your son/daughter to this school.
Klein Oak High School was accepted this year as an International Baccalaureate program school. It is the only suburban area high school to receive this accreditation other than Bellaire and Lamar. Students must reside within Klein ISD to attend and participate in this highly rated academic course of study. Klein Oak was also rated Exemplary this year. 'Nuff said!
