    Overall Experience: I love Katy High School a lot. I am so blessed to have moved to Katy and attend the best school in KatyISD. All of the staff is very nice and resourceful. Teachers and counselors will always try their best to help you keep your grades looking their best. This school is all about tradition and it is absolutely amazing. I wouldn't want to attend any other school.

    Overall Experience: My overall experience at Katy high school has been great. I came from an area that was not that great and when my family moved to katy it was nothing i had ever seen before. The best experiences are the friday night football games because we always win! What makes this school unique is it was the first school in katy isd, it was the small town school but now it has expanded in many ways. If I had to start over I would definitley choose this school again, it will always be a part of me no matter where I am.

    Overall Experience: Katy High School was where I spent the majority go my teenage years. It was here that I learned who I was as a leader, who my real friends were and just how scary the real world is. Katy High School was where I met the woman who made me the person I am today. I learned about tradition and the importance of school and family. I had some of the greatest teachers who taught me many life lessons, but most of all Katy High School was where I found myself. I made great friends and had the greatest experience of my life.

    Overall Experience: What makes Katy High School unique is -by far- the culture and atmosphere of our varsity football games. As a member of the band, I get to firsthand experience everything that makes Katy football what it is. Every game (whether that be at home, in the rain, or at the Cowboy's stadium in Dallas) a sea of red follows us in the stands. Our team is frequently televised and we have had our mascot fly into a state bound pep rally on a helicopter! Katy High School is overall very supportive of extracurricular activities and prides it's self on tradition.
