    "Katherine Anne Porter School(KAPS) has been a true blessing for my son. My teenage son can't wait to get up in the morning and go to school and wishes for summer break to be over so he can go back to school!!! How cool is that? I have never seen an environment of young adults that are so caring, loving and accepting of each other. Best of all the teacher:student ratio allows the teachers to work closely with the students and help them thrive. All of the teachers and staff truly enjoy their jobs and care about the students. If only the KAPS mold could be cut and placed all over the country-other families could only be so lucky!"

    "This was my daughter's first year at KAPS and it has been her most successful and enjoyable year by far (and we have tried a combination of private, public, and homeschooling). The teacher-student ratio is better than even most private schools. Teachers are top-notch -- smart, well-trained, seasoned, and genuinely respectful of students. Staff and faculty are clear and straightforward in their expectations but are not mindlessly controlling (of students who are creative and probably more free-spirited than most) and, no surprise, the students mirror this culture and are polite and supportive toward one another. Everyone is incredibly resourceful (as has to be the case at a small charter school with little support from the state). KAPS faced several major challenges this year -- flooding; its principal was seriously injured in an accident -- and it was amazing how the KAPS community pulled together in every case. (I want to emphasize that the principal showed enormous courage and strength in recovering from the accident; he inspired all of us!) Plenty of good work gets done at KAPS, yet it still feels more like a "family" than an institution. I am grateful we found the school."

    "The Katherine Anne Porter School offers an educational curriculum designed to nurture individual interests, foster an appreciation for learning, increase community responsibilities, and enhances peace and human rights. The four foundations of the KAP's School are 1) academics first, 2) full participation in learning, 3) mutual respect, and 4) community service. These are the four foundations of success for KAPS staff and students. With these foundations and the belief that each student can feel comfortable and succeed at KAPS, the open, friendly environment allows teachers to be very effective. Despite growing poverty and hardships among Texan students, good instruction itself has the largest influence on achievement."

    "I found this school before moving to Texas from Maryland. This is a fantastic school it has been a growing, loving, accepting school. My boys have become great young men and I think KAPS has helped in molding who they are becoming. The staff and teachers are warm and wonderfully welcoming."

    "Katherine Anne Porter is a charter that serves a 4 county rural area with 150 enrolled freshman through senior high school students. It was named after the famous author who spent some time in childhood in the Hays county area. The school offers visual and performing art opportunities, but has great faculty in the sciences as well. The faculty are dedicated to assisting students to identify and develop their talents, be those academic, skilled-based, or other. The student body is as economically and culturally diverse as the area allows. Presently the school is putting on a new roof and repairing flood damage from a fall 2013 flood. The school does an excellent job providing a nurturing environment for budding adults. It also does a fine job of education. The building could use fire safety and mobility adaptations."
