Staff, counselors, teachers are difficult many times to communicate with effectively, and that is a compliment, As a parent I always get the feeling they are bothered or going through the motions and not really listen to what I am asking, dealing with and what is going on my kids. The teachers and Assist Principals are difficult to contact to discuss your kids progress. The phone system is horrendous. The staff is often unprofessional and overbloated which to me translates into higher taxes. Kids, of course, are great. This could be a great school if they could get their act together.
I am a graduate from the class of 2011 and I can say Klein Collins is a great school. There's so much to do and they offer a lot of clubs and activities as well. The teachers are top notch and they know how to be great instructors. The principal is very personable and is easy to talk to. The counselors will give your student the right direction IF you make an appointment to talk to them. Klein Collins will prepare your student but when going to college they offer to many "cushins" in the classroom, like allowing late homework depending on the teacher, even though I took advantage of that in High School. There's so much to do and this will definelty be a great school for your student.
i am a junior at klein collins the teachers and counselors are great, I am proud to be a tiger.
I absolutely LOVE this school! I moved to this school from Oak Ridge High School because of academic problems and social problems and I'm usually A straight A student but the environment of Oak Ridge is horrible so I wasn't doing very well. Then I came to Klein Collins and was immediately shocked by the educational values here. If your looking for the best school in the Spring area this is it. 5-Stars for me!
Klein Collins has a lot of determined students, and willing teachers, which makes it a good school. But the whole administration is a real pain. They are always on a trip, and your time is never of the importance. This can go the same for the counselors, since they also don't care for the student base. This is not as bad as to break the school, but it is missing a lot of potential.
I am a freshman at KC and so far love it here! I do have to say that the expectations of some of the teachers are high (especially in English) and there are a few teachers, who, I'm afraid, arn't cut out for the role. Still, it's a great school acedemically and a fun place to be! GO TIGERS
Klein Collins is a decent school, I transferred here from my high school in Michigan and lost alot of credits, due to that, I was behind a grade for a while. The counselors really don't prepare you for college. They did not recommend any universities, or really offer much advice. They did speak a couple of times to us but that is not on the 1-1 basis. All in all, good academics, just not much 1 to 1 counseling. I'm shocked though to hear negatively of the teachers, they were great.
My daughter was the first generation to graduate from KCHS. And now I have a son in the school. I have nice things to say about Klein Collins. It is the best high school around. The teachers have always been more than cooperative whenever I have needed them . Good Job! Keep it up! I was very happy with the school and still am. I love everything about Klein Collins.
Currently, I have two children at KCHS (a Junior, and a Freshman). My kids attended private school K - 8th. During my oldest's 8th grade, we moved out of Westfield HS area just to be in Klein ISD. Of KISD's high schools, we really only wanted Klein Collins or Klein Oak. My oldest's first year was really special. Being involved in sports really helped to meet others, the coaches seemed to help her feel welcome and a part of the school; the English teacher really seemed to make an impact on my child. But since then, we've really been disappointed with how the same coaches have been toward her, the teachers really don't seem to expect too much from the kids, and/or maybe the overall student attitude is to do just enough to get by. We wouldn't do it any different, we'd still move from Westfield to KCHS!
Klein Collins has a good academic program but the majority of the teachers and staff seem to have an attitude, are not very helpful, and several I have dealt with appear to be on a power trip. They are not there for the students, even though they will tell the general public they are. The office staff doesn't interact with the students well at all. It seems they are there to draw their paycheck and don't want to be bothered with teenagers!
Klein Collins has potential but has not lived up to that potential. If your child is having any trouble the staff is very resistant to modifications. Some of the teachers are willing to help but like so many schools it is filled with people who need jobs and not people who like to teach and motivate. The college preparation/counseling could be better for students undecided about future career/major. The atmosphere is not one of 'we are here to make your child successful and demanding that type of excellence'. They do not go out of their way to make the experience a great learning environment.
High quality academics; great co/extracurricular activities; parental involvement good; college preparation/counseling could be better for students undecided about future career/major. As most schools go, content areas are as good as the teachers involved.
KCHS has one of the best curriculums available. The parents are involved and kept informed through the almost daily emailed newsletter. My one huge disappointment with KCHS is that the extracurricular sports are cliquish. The only children put in the position to 'star' in any given game situation are the children of the administrators and teachers of the junior high and high school and the friends of those administrators and teachers children. All other members (I did not say players)are there only to help that exclusive group shine.
We moved from the 1960 area to enroll our daughter in this school. We have not been disappointed. Academic quality is superior to the private school she attended from 1st through 7th grade and the junior high she went to in the Spring School District in 8th grade. She is having to apply herself since the level of competition is higher than anything she experienced before. We definitely feel that she is being better prepared for college. Our only disappointment has been in the Soccer and Vollyball coaches. Both were over the top, with the Soccer coach veering towards psychotic. The tennis coach was great!
Klein Collins though i relatively new school I can tell is all ready flourishing! I had a daughter that just graduated from here and it was four of the best and most memorable years of her life! She loved her teachers the students and the principals! She was able to make a name for herself even though surrouded by over 2 thousand students!
I love this school, at Westfield the teachers were scarred to to do anything and would hardly teach but at Klein Collins its great, the food is great our school sports are great and the teachers are cool, they like teach while also putting some fun into the classroom. I recommend this school
Wonderful school, nice building. Good students,willing to work, and they treat each other well.
this school is mostly white the staff will not do anything if they blurr out something racist specially against hispanics, i recommend you if your not white specially hispanic dont sen your son here.
This school is the best thing that ever happened to my daughters. Not only are all of the teachers and staff friendly there are so many oppurtunities for each kid to shine. One of my daughters always hated school and dreaded goin until she started attending here. She was heading no where and his school saved and showed her her talents. I give this school an A+.
I would say at this time school is is on line to blue ribbon status in view of districts commitment to using modern technology. I just hope their commitment to teachers salaries, benefits is as commited.
