The head boy's basketball coach is a bully who mentally abuses players. He is only the coach bc of who he knows. He's the worst coach ever and has hardly won a game. He'd rather stand there and lose than play who he should. He benches his best players with the excuse that he worked hard as a kid and never got to play. He feels like the best players get everything handed to them. The best are best bc they worked hard to be. When theyre seniors is not the time to play games or take out frustrations stemming from past failures. He talks about kids with other children. Last year he had 2 of the best players in KISD and wouldn't let them play. If your son is sane and talented, don't send him to KHS to play for Danny Russell. He will kill your child's dreams and devestate you the parent and all you invested. All bc hes jealous of anyone who has the skills that he didnt have. This man is a horrible human being and should not be around children.. Don't ruin your athlete's future!

Katy High School is a great public school with dedicated teachers that are willing to go the extra mile to help and teach their students. I learned a lot here, and I wouldn't have wanted to go to any other school because of Katy's fun traditions and staff. Football games are a must and theme days are the best! One thing I would change about the school is to make it more modern to meet the needs of the students.
High school flies by fast, so make sure you're getting the best out of it. Especially at katy, join clubs and connect with your teachers, it's all there to make your experience better. I'm proud of the impact I made on my alum and I can't wait to see how it changes with future generations of Tigers! The tradition continues
