Katy Independent School District Reviews

106 reviews
All Categories
Katy ISD is a public school district based in Katy, Texas with an enrollment of over 70,000 students. As of August 2009, the district was rated as "Recognized" by the Texas Education Agency. The district serves 181 square miles in parts of Harris County, Fort Bend County, and Waller County. Most of the district lies within the boundaries of the City of Houston, the City of Katy or their municipalities' extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ). Unincorporated areas in Katy ISD include Barker, Cinco Ranch, and Cimarron. So far, My experience with the District has generally been good!

I feel like I got a good education, but the district needs work. Instead of giving the teachers better pay, they choose to buy class sets of iPad minis and build a new multimillion dollar football stadium right next to the other one, which works perfectly fine. The online resource we use, called Canvas, has a lot of technical issues and is down often. However, we have a campus called the Miller career and technology center and it was an amazing experience to try out different careers before having to choose a college major or going into the workforce. I also took a few dual credit courses with my college to get ahead, and they really helped to, and they were free!
My overall experience with Katy ISD has not been especially positive. There seems to be no accountability of teachers by the administration, especially when situations arise that teachers are repeatedly verbally or emotionally abusing students. Even with multiple documented occurrences and meetings by many students and parents with on campus admin, these teachers still remain in the classrooms. There are no dismissals, and no obvious improvements by the teachers in question. There is no excuse for the ongoing mistreatment of students by the adults with whom their safety, trust, and education has been entrusted. If you peruse the Katy ISD website and find their "True North" mission statement, evaluate the situation, you will find that these words mean nothing to the people they were intended to guide. It has been a disappointment to say the least.
