Harmony Science Academy West Houston - 2/18/2016
My kids has been it this school since it opened. It was great at first until they kept changing hands in principle. They had great plans but never get carried out. The following are my own experiences and why I don't like it.
- The current principle Ms. Koli is the worst out of all of the principles. I took the matters to her regarding no teacher were hired for one of the classes. She was so defensive instead of addressing my concern, she slashed out on us and told us the school doesn't have to tell parents anything in that matter. It's strictly "school business". She's constantly yelling at students in the lobby during dismissal (young and old) threatening the kids into obedience. I complained to other teachers and their response were, "She doesn't do that only to students!" That explains my next concern.
- Teachers turnover rate is way too high. We had a lot of great teachers at first but none of them stay more than 2 years maybe.
- Unorganized staffs. Everything Read More

Katy is wonderful place to live and work! - 6/8/2015
I live in Katy since August 26, 2007. And I am so grateful to God that He blessed me by sending to live in Katy. It is much smaller than Houston, but the quality of life is much higher and people are so polite and friendly! I migrated to live in Katy from Uzbekistan (former USSR)and I think that hospitality of local people is so warm and generous. I totally disagree with negative comments about hospitality of Texans posted here. Texas is the greatest place to live and work. People are more family oriented and child-caring compared to other states. Schools are so good for kids, here they can get complete educational level. The only thing which is hard to adapt is Texan summer, which is extremely hot and intolerably humid. And therefore it is so hard to find too many people outdoors during the summer months!But winters, falls and springs are so fantastic! So if you want to become a Texan, you will have to learn how to survive and thrive in summer months. I think I have already adapted Read More

Great Suburb - 4/11/2013
I have only lived here 2 yrs w/my teenager and we love it here! We moved here from Chicago. The winters are wonderfu1 but has it's downfall and very humid in summer. Katy has best schools in Houston area. The curriculum is challenging but that's what kids need. We live close to I10, variety of restaurants, shopping and not far from Houston at all. Homes/apts vary in prices but cost of living is great here! People are much more friendly here than back home. I find my life less stressful since I moved from the Windy Read More

Greater Houston Area - 11/15/2012
Because Houston did not experience the huge housing bubble of the other major metropolitan areas, we also did not experience a huge crash.

You can still buy a home in the $100,000 range, never have to shovel your driveway, have a backyard pool, and enjoy great schools, great access to the top doctors in the country, and any art or entertainment your heart desires.

With two major aiports Houston is just hours away from any city in North America, and the great beaches of Mexico and the Read More

Hot and sticky in the summer, snows sometimes in the winter and can freeze long enough to kill the plants. Spring and Fall are fantastic Read More

I love Katy Texas!!!!! - 3/22/2011
There is a lot to do in Katy.. The Katy mills mall is a huge shopping mall.. the schools are great. My mom and sister lives off of fry road.. We used to live smack in the center of town on Heights drive. I loved going to Katy High School.. It is a smaller high school.. I played softball for the Katy Softball league.. There are newer subdivisions and older subdivisions.. It is basically a quiet town. I miss living there because I now live in illinois and wish I could move back.. maybe some day I can! Katy is far enough away from Houston so you get the small town feel but close enough to enjoy all the attractions Houston has to offer.  Read More

So much to do, and all in your backyard (relativel - 2/23/2011
Not only does this area of Texas have amazing weather, it also offers easy access to the Gulf of Mexico, and numerous lakes and rivers for perfect water enjoyment 9 months of the year. Even when it is hot, you can still get out and do something and the weather will cooperate. Every place is air conditioned, so if you need to get out of the heat, you can. Unlike snow, heat doesn't stop you from going shopping, to the movies, to a sports event or concert, hanging out by the pool, visiting the numerous cultural attractions available in Houston (30 minute drive), or heading to the water parks. I was born and raised in Rochester, New York, so I know what I am talking about. Don't knock it until you know what it is like to live somewhere less forgiving.  Read More
