    "KAPS is a small, free charter high school. It serves ~150 students from various cities and school districts in the Wimberley area. Being a charter school, we do not receive full state funding. We are also a Title 1 school because many of the students are on the free/reduced lunch program. We operate on a shoe string but, somehow, everything that needs to get done gets done. We make due and are creative with what we receive or fund raise and have some wonderful angels in the parents and communities KAPS serves. My son is a freshman. He developed epilepsy in 2009 and was home bound to some degree through the Dripping Springs school district for his middle school years. This is his first year back as a full-time student. The superintendent, principal, counselor and teachers have been very supportive in helping him acclimate back into all-day school. They are encouraging beyond anything I ever expected! They genuinely take an interest in the students, not just their academics but also what is going on in their lives, and help them deal with it. KAPS is certainly deserving of the donation from GreatSchools because it is not just a great school, it is a FANTASTIC one!"

    "KAPS is an amazing school! The environment is inviting and accepting. My son graduated in 2004. I've been back just last week to donate and visit. STILL incredible and STUDENT ART everywhere!"

    "This school has made my daughter's life so much better. The teachers are extremely available to parents and students alike. We are always able to talk to someone about any issues and they are independent thinkers in solving challenges. The small class sizes and outside the norm social acceptance makes school about supporting the students rather than trying to fit them into a mold. My daughter loves being able to be herself. Also she is a high achieving student and feels like the classes are challenging and she learns more than she did in conventional school. We love this school!"

    "My daughter is a freshman and LOVES going to school every day. The after school program rocks, and she often wants to stay after school to hang out with her friends in a fun, safe environment. This is a great school if you are interested in academics, art, music, and want to avoid the usual cliques and social structure that comes with the football culture at most schools."

    "My son is in his junior year at KAPS. He had attended Hays HS his freshman year but when we moved to San Marcos just before his sophomore year, he and I decided to give KAPS a try rather than enroll him at SMHS due to my severe reservations about the high school in San Marcos. The small class sizes attracted me - he couldn't be lost in the crowd with only six to twelve students in a class. He loves KAPS. He came home almost every day saying how he loved the school - this is something I haven't heard him say since kindergarten. His grades improved dramatically. He delighted in going to school and quickly became involved in the diverse after school program. The staff is wholly supportive of the students, the new teachers as well as the old. Diversity is embraced rather than disallowed. He still says he loves his school ons nearly daily basis. While the school is certainly not for everyone, it has been a God-send for the both of us as we'll as for many of his classmates and their families."
