I am currently a Jr. at Foster, and enjoy most every day there! The Principle is a great man, who takes time to make sure the students who deserve credit get the credit that's due. In my three year's at Foster High, Mr. Tomas has been to every single Theatre UIL event, be it was 30 minuets from Foster ...  Read more

I LOVE this school! The teachers are very approachable and responsive and many have or are working on their Masters. The graduating class this year alone has achieved so much with one student receiving an internship with the Surgeon General, another winning one of 26 nationwide TI National Merit scholarships, ...  Read more

I had two children graduate from exemplary schools In highly ranked KISD, but it was my daughter who graduated from Foster that was on the deans list, her first year of college. The first person I met when going to freshman orientation, was Mr Tomas. I didn't even know who he was at the time, but he ...  Read more

This is the worse school I have ever sent my children to. The principle has a moto of Student's First but that is not the way it is at that school. Because he has been around for so long he knows he is untouchable. I don't know what the rest of the administration does all day but they very seldom ...  Read more

This is a fantastic school, combining advanced facilities and intelligent teachers to provide a strong springboard platform from which your child can leap to the best college or career!

As my daughter prepares for graduation from this school, I think that I'm almost more excited than she is. I am tired of listening to her constant complaints. The staff is disrespectful and demanding, the school hallways remain filthy, and the students are poorly diciplined despite all the effort. ...  Read more

Foster High School looks promising when my daughter enrolled freshman year, but as her first year progressed I was proven wrong. The school is very disorganized, and it seems that the administration cares more about the dress code than actual problems. On another note - this school has some pretty amazing ...  Read more

My daughter graduated from this school and has struggled her first semester in college. I am doing everything I can to make sure my son does not attend this school. The band program is awesome! The administration is not. Overall, we have been very disappointed with this school.

I have two boys that attend Foster in the 10th and 11th grade. I must say that thier high school years have been a challenge for them, but with the help from teachers,counselors, and the administration team, I believe that this will be an overwhelming LEARNING experience academically and emotionally. ...  Read more

I have been teaching at Foster High School for a few years now. Moving from an inner city school district, I find Foster to be very comfortable and exceptional school to work for. The administration is still new but has made major changes over the past year or so. The rigor of most classes is very ...  Read more
