Our children attend this school and regularly out preform our nieces and nephews that attend a very expensive private school in The Woodlands. The caliber of the education they are receiving excellent. We are confident that they will be more them prepared to follow their dreams and feel they are being well prepared for the future . My daughter wants to follow in my footsteps and become a doctor. I am very involved and know that the bar at this campus are set high so that each child will be prepared to be all that they can or want to be. They are there to assist you and support you. We give this school very high marks all around

Absolutely love everything about this school. Lots o parent involvement and great feeder elementarys...Nottingham and Pattison. Love the fact that is seems the popular kids tend to be the ones in AP classes or high achieves which makes it a competitive setting. Kids are surrounded in a high achieving atmosphere which is hard to find in schools this day. We love it an like that any teachers appear to hold advanced degrees.

Our child went to a private school in Houston that is very highly regarded. We were in for a rude awakening when we moved here and actually discovered that she was actually BEHIND many of the kids in the AP classes here. Wow. The kids that go to this school apparently began working in Algebra and Geometry concepts early in elementary school so we actually had to get a tutor to help her catch up. She is doing great and is now flourishing. We attended a school play and were floored by the professionalism of the production and sets. The Arts and music have a string presence at this school and the children appear well prepared for higher learning. This junior High feeds into Taylor High Achool which my daughter says is nicknamed "Taylor University" if that tells you anything. We are very happy to have found this school and the strong values they enforce from behavior to dress on up. A+ and best of all, we just saved ourselves about 20 grand a year. Only thing is that their do tend to be a lot I well off kids here so we have to keep her grounded.

Even though my son is enjoying his junior high school years at this school, the administration is just pathetic. Starting with the Principal, who does not give any credit to the word of a student, or the parents in problematic situations. They do not listen and when they said they try to solve a situation, BEWARE... far from helping solve my case, they (Principals) just humiliated my son!! I need to admit that there are great teachers and the band and choir programs are simple awesome! The counselor is terrific, but other than that, everything is just words without meaning. I am so disappointing of the Principals at Memorial Parkway Junior High :)

Good teachers, fabulous counselors, too bad they have the principals they have. The Principal cares a whole lot about putting a nice face to everyone. He does chats and friendly speeches, and makes you believe he really cares about students and parents. However, in the end, when you need him, when a student needs his support, neither the students nor the parents can count on him. It is a shame to have a Principal who preaches one thing and does completely the opposite.

I'm a former student of MPJH (2011-2012), and going here was a terrible experience. The vice principal(s) is/are oblivious to bullying, and blame(s) victims. Fights occur very often, and not much is done about them. Drugs float around school. Like other reviews mentioned, the dress code is over-enforced, despite the fact that they should be focused on the violence and bullying. I never really felt safe going here. However, the mentoring program is exceptional.

This school is horrible considering the adminstrators. There ae some great teachers on the campus that are willing to go the extra mile. When I have been on campus, there have been too many intruptions from the principal yelling over the intercom about problems. I guess that is his was of taking care of business. I have spoken to several teachers and they also seem so upset all the time because of the climate on the campus. Think Katy is missing something here, new principal needs to be hired and this one traded in.

We moved to the Katy area in Jan. 09'. Our son was assigned to Memorial Parkway Jr High. So far, our experience has been great. The staff has been very accommodating and supporting of our son's difficulty transitioning to a new place. The teachers are excellent and offer additional tutoring before and after school. For the most part, the students are friendly and well mannered. My son has made a lot of new friends and loves his new school. Security protocols are 'strictly' enforced to provide a safe environment. There are full-time and part-time (i think) security guards on the premises. Furthermore, security cameras have been installed throughout the campus. You can feel reasonable assured your child is safe at MPJH! I hope this helps!

The people who say all the teachers care about is clothes are totally wrong. Of course they care about clothes, but sometimes you will see kids walking around with things on that teachers would usually yell at them for, yet they don't. Also, some of the older teachers really do care, but most don't. They get them in class, and push them out after the 40/45 minute period. If you were in the school, witnessing what is happening in every group of friends, every clique, every relationship, you would see why this school lacks what it does. At school, fights occur constantly (if not fist fights, very heavy verbal fights), things get destroyed or stolen, and hate and jealousy is thrown everywhere. I am so glad I will get out of this school after 9 weeks.

Memorial Parkway Junior High is small in student population and the teacher ratio is perfect. The school was remodeled inside in summer of 2007 and it is really beautiful inside. The school has really great leadership and teachers. They only need to offer more electives to the six graders. They really ned a wider base in this area. The other junior highs offer more of a selection in their electives. I think it is a wonderful school environment, almost a small town feel compared to the other junior highs in the district. Really nice.

For the parents who think the fine arts programs are 'fare' here are some words from a former student. I was in Mr. Leger's choir program and all I have to say is this man is the reason I went to school. He is a man who will stand by your child threw thick and thin and have there back the entire time. This is a man who really honestly cares deeply about his students. MPJH would be nothing without his program and if I still lived in Katy I would see to it that my daughter was taught by him because being in Mr. Leger's class is an experience that makes children into strong confident individuals. For those of you who rated the fine arts program 'fare' you must be mistaken. This program is the one redeeming factor of MPJH and that is no exaggeration.
