High School Junior

On Student Culture & Diversity: Peer pressure is very high, the students are very intolerable to anything different. They are intolerable to different races and sexual orientations. Katy High School isn't very tolerant.

High School Junior

On Sports & Fitness: Most of the money goes to football, so anything with football is very, very well funded. Anything that doesn't isn't so much.

On Overall Experience: I tend not to deal with the parents. They are very sports crazy and hate opposing opinions, They are not very tolerable to anything different.

High School Junior

On Academics: We don't really emphasize academics, though those who focus hard are very good. We do have some very good teachers and some that are very bad. It depends on the teacher.

High School Junior

On Resources & Facilities: The school emphasizes football, not athletics in general. Since band is associated with football, the are far better funded than the orchestra or choir. All the money goes to football. We have decent buildings, the freshman center was just rebuilt because of the cancerous material in the ceiling, so the new building is very modern. However the rest of the school is subpar. The counselors are alright, really only talking to seniors about college and taking to you when you come to them. All college prep work is really done by the students.
