Amazing school with great teachers and staff. Very friendly all around. Glad my son attends this school
Unfortunately, not every teacher in the school shows the dedication required for those not involved in AP or IB curricula. A student who is "average" is taught by some (not all) who obviously have no motivation to help. Many (not all) of the sports programs are driven only by their win/loss record and the coaches show no interest in teaching a sport. We are happy with Dr. Greeney and hopeful that he will continue making positive changes.
I have a son in the special education department, I've always been an involved mom because I always had to be my son's advocate for his success in school. Klein Oak staff and administration has always been positive with me and my son. Always helping when I have a question or need assistance. My son is working with the athletic department as a equipment manager for football, the coaches have done nothing short of making my son feel part of the team, that is important to an autisic child. 100% appreciation from this mom!!
Klein Oak is the best! Klein Oak High School is the best in the entire Klein ISD. Dr. Greeney did a fantastic job this last school year and I'm sure he will do it again this upcoming school year.
Klein Oak has a great academic program. Dr. Greeney has done a fantastic job with school spirit and being accessible for the students and parents. He really listens and tries new ideas.
My school as a whole is fantastic. Studend body wise it is better than Collins, Klein, Forest, or any other district highschool in my opinion. The only reason i am living in Texas at the moment is because of Klein Oak High. Their acedemic programs are amazing, their athletic programs are second to none, and the faculty and staff are great too. The student body could be a bit better and there could be less rediculously strict rules, but life goes on.
My son, a graduate of 2014, and myself are extremely pleased with this school for being great leaders in all areas of education and providing excellent communication to the students and parents.
Klein Oak is the best high school in Klein. Dr. Greeney has increased school spirit and has innovative ideas planned for the future to help all kids succeed. He has hosted community meetings to help parents feel connected and keep us informed about changes for the future. Thank you, Dr. Greeney, for your hard work!
There are some great teachers at Klein Oak but unfortunately the majority of them are teaching IB or AP classes. When a student has difficulty understanding something I feel like many times the teacher assumes they are not trying. My daughter is a bright young lady but does have difficulty learning at times. I feel like she is one of the students that are lost in the crowd. When I have spoken to some of her teachers over the last 4 years about how to help her they have been very negative. I feel like the teachers should be there to help ALL the students not just the IB and AP students. Also, the girls volleyball head coach does very little to help the girls grow as a person and to learn from being on a team but actually causes many of them to feel belittled or subpar as a person. She is very negative and I have known her for the last 11 years. I have had 2 daughters play for her, one that went on to play in college, no thanks to the KO coach and the other who actually quit at KO along with many of her teammates because of the way they were treated. I sincerely hope the new principal will be able to improve things for the regular students and the volleyball program.
Klein Oak High School is a phenomenal school. Their IB, PreAp, and AP teachers are very hard working, devoted teachers. On the contrary many of the "regulars" classroom teachers lack motivation and often yield poor performance. Our new principal Dr.Greeney is a blessing! He's cheerful, smart, and hardworking. Most of the students at our school love him for his humor and uplifting personality. A major improvement that our educational system needs in general (at the individual school level) is a strong incentive for students to pursue their own learning. By this I mean that our students are "forced" into learning particular studies without given reasoning, logic, or practical real life application unless directly asked by a student. Unfortunately not every (nor the majority) of students are dedicated, responsible learners. Once students have the desire to learn there is a major change in behavior. I've noticed that schools--mine in particular-- throw out heaps of money to promote active learning yet get low performance returns for their investments. They are simple throwing their money in the wrong directions. Instead, they should provide attractive logic why to learn at all.
Klein Oak has the best students, teachers and faculty. Not only do they respect the rules of the district, they respect each other. They are all selfless people that give to each other and the community.
Klein Oak's administration has impressed me. The are very efficient and friendly each time I've had to contact them. Teaching staff is very supportive as well.
Klein Oak has been an AWESOME school for our daughter. She graduates this year with a full scholarship to University of Texas. The principal and the staff have been wonderful.
The administration has great diversity to it but they might want to tweak it just a bit. I do not like how laxed some of the rules are but I do like how we are allowed to have dress up days. Some of the teachers need to just retire already or learn that they should not be teaching. The administration needs to monitor the teachers more and they need to make sure that what students are doing in class is actually relative to the course work. Great school just needs some updates.
Klein Oak is an amazing school, with tremendous pride and brilliant students and staff members. Oak offers a wide array of multitudinous electives to prepare students for the real world and the careers they may so choose to decide on. The International Baccalaureate (IB) program offered goes above and beyond to satisfy requirements as well as offer students a true challenge through learning. Klein Oak has an amazing Fine Arts department, recieving multiple national titles and is every commonly known in a large area. Teachers are more than simply qualified and go out of their way to assist students with anything they could possibly need by lending an affectionate ear.
We have only been in Klein Oak for 1 year but are very impressed with the leadership and quality of education. The school offers so many opportunities for the students to succeed and takes a personal interest in each student. Although it is a large school, the feel of a small environment is present. The extra-curricular activity choices are so broad that every student can find an activity that interests them. Dr. Greeney is a wonderful principal and the kids all respect and love him. Communication between staff and parents is open and constant. As a parent, I am so happy that we made the choice to ensure my child would attend Klein Oak High School.
Klein Oak is a great place to teach. I love my students and the staff!
This is a great school with an IB program in the greater Houston area. We are looking forward to sending our 2nd child through the program. It has an outstanding Orchestra program. The principal tries to be involved in the students' activities at the school. He has attended every single Orchestra event since the students started inviting him. He also likes to be engaged with the students in the hallways during the day. Very personable. The teachers challenge the students to achieve. Communication with the parents is usually timely when not so great things happen at the school.
As a senior now, it has been awesome to see my school progress and grow over the years. Wouldn't have changed a thing. & absolutely love Dr. Greeney!! :)
Amazing school, which consists of teachers, lunch room ladies, custodial, to security officers. Everyone is behind you 100%. Thanks for changing lives day after day.
