    I don't have any idea why someone would give this school 2 stars. Tbh I loved going to this school and I am so happy I made the decison to transition from charter to public school! People here a nice , I have never heard of any bullying going on here ever and the campus is diverse!! My only complaint would be that science department could be improved BUT I met some of the best teachers of my schooling career here.

    I am a student at Kempner and can say the quality of academics is average. The teacher quality is not great. On the plus side though, there are lot of clubs, and other extracurriculars such as art, music and sports. But if moving to Fortbend ISD, I would recommend Austin, Dulles or Clements--great academics!
