My experience at Katy high school has been amazing ! I've met wonderful teachers that I trust and learn so much from and have created unforgettable friendships as well as memories . There is so much tradition in Katy high school and it feels great knowing so many generations have gone through here .The whole student body has so much pride and stands up for the school through thick and thin . I've preformed at every football game for the past 3 years now and the crowd is amazing ,it gives me chills & brings a instant smile on to my face knowing that I go to a school that has a supportive group of students. The old parts of the school might need a little help becuase it looks run down and random things break here and there that could be dangerous . There is alot of random cockroaches that appear out of no where and no one likes them. Over all everything is just amazing and it's a school I'm lucky to say I spent my teenage years at!
Review Katy High School
I like that Katy provides several opportunities to be involved with in school as well as community activities. Clubs and programs like Interact, Student Council and National Honor Society help to successfully promote leadership and selflessness. The academics are fair and there are good teachers but it would be beneficial if more instructors who coach a sport would invest themselves just as much in the subject and curriculum rather than prioritize extracurriculars. Over all I have enjoyed my experience attending Katy High School and I feel I have learned a lot and grown as an individual
My experience at Katy High School has been a good one. I have made tons of memories that will never be forgotten. This school is like no other in the KatyISD school district because it's based on tons of tradition. The reason for this is because it was the first school in Katy, Texas and was founded in 1898. Of course the school has been remodeled over time, it still holds the same "tradition of excellence" as in the past. Here football is everything! KHS has won 7 state football championship titles and continues working towards the legacy. The softball team, track, and cross country teams have gone to state as well. Apart from sports, academics and clubs have been successful as well. Students at my school challenge themselves and strive to accomplish more than they think. Everyone here from the students to the teachers, take pride in the school and the many accomplishments we continue to work towards.
