Schindewolf Intermediate has some significant issues. Parents in my neighborhood with choices exercise those by placing their students in private schools. Adminitration is weak and asleep at the wheel! If you have an average student it will probably be okay. If you have a child at either end of the spectrum (GT or Special Education) this is not the school for you!
Schindewolf is an excellent school. I see the principal at many of the after-school functions including sports, theatre and band. She is accessible, communicative and friendly, and the teachers follow her lead. Some of our children's favorite classes were Theatre and Skills for Living, which were a nice break from the pre AP classes which can be challenging. Not complaining about the challenge, though, because most children need it.
Lots of the teachers can be helpful, but there are some that don't teach at all. If the school gets better teachers, I believe that this would be a better school. The food also can be unhealthy; foods out of the main lines there still can be unhealthy as the ones in the snack lines. The cirriculum i wish could be as Spring ISD's because of their Tier 4 program being better than the GT [I believe]. The building is in good condition, and the campus is great.
Though we are new to the Klein School District and Schindlewolf, I have been pleased with the teachers, staff and leeadership. They are friendly, and willing to work with parents to ensure their children are getting a quality education. I frequently email teachers and get a response the same day, but more than a days time. Having responsive teachers has greatly improved my 6th graders learning experience. The only reason I give a 3 to extracurricular activities is because 6th graders are not allowed to participate in sports. I am sure there is some logic behind it, however, having sports available to my son would have greatly enhanced his socialization into the school. He is very shy and sports is something he loves and would have afforded him the opportunity to make friends with kids with common interests.
