Living in Katy is truly a family experience, with special focus on our children. We are very proud of our Katy Independent School District, a flourishing suburban school district that encompasses 181 square miles in east Texas. Its eastern boundaries stretch to Houston's energy corridor approximately 16 miles west of downtown Houston and extend along Interstate 10 to a few miles west of the city of Katy. In the 2006-07 school year, the projected student enrollment has grown to more than 50,000 served by 44 schools, including six high schools. Rated as Recognized by the Texas Education Agency, Katy ISD offers an outstanding instructional program with facilities, equipment and materials that are among the best in the state. Our students benefit from a wide-variety of programs, including Community Education, Summer Programs, Gifted and Talented Programs, Vocational Education, Vocational Agriculture, Special Education, Athletics/Physical Education and Alternative Education. For these reasons and so much more. You will want to come home to Katy, too.
