    Student Culture & Diversity: The students are very involved in what they do no matter what it is. The students that are very passionate about what activity they do makes it easy for them not to give into peer pressure. Mostly everyone is accepted.

    Academics: The academics are fairly average as far as the workload, we do not have tons of homework every night unless you are in a pre-ap or an ap class.

    Extracurriculars: There are many clubs and sports available, however we do not have anything that is very unique. There is very few clubs for students that are not interested in the popular clubs or sports.

    Teachers: Like any school there is well rounded teachers that are passionate about what they do and there are teachers that are in it for the pay-check. The teachers at Katy are mostly very interested and passionate about their job and care for the students.

    Health & Safety: The main area I would focus on is safety. Anyone can walk into Katy high school with no issue. Our front doors need remain locked throughout the day at all times for the safety of other students and staff.
