Katy ISD's High School Rankings Get Shaken Up for 2019

Real Estate Agent with Roots & Wings Realty Group / Champions Real Estate Group TREC #702048

When GreatSchools.org pushed their updated rankings out at the end of 2018, I noticed the jump in Taylor High School's ranking. I own several rental properties in the Memorial Parkway neighborhood, which is zoned to Taylor, and the subdivision has seen some higher than average appreciation over the last 18 months than Katy overall has. 


So I decided to dig a little bit deeper into the overall high school rankings for Katy ISD. While Greatschools.org does not keep the previous rankings of the schools in an archive, I was able to use the Wayback Machine to view the profile pages for each school in the past. 


All of the below rankings were updated October 2018.


KISD High School

Current Rating as of October 2018

Seven Lakes High School


Cinco Ranch High School


Tompkins High School


Taylor High School

9/10 (+2)

Katy High School

7/10 (-1)

Mayde Creek High School

6/10 (+1)

Morton Ranch High School

5/10 (+1)

Paetow High School

Not yet rated.



  •        Seven Lakes High School keeps it's standing as the top high school in Katy ISD, remaining stable at 10/10.
  •        Cinco Ranch High School and Tompkins high school remain stable compared to years past ranking 9/10.
  •        Katy Taylor High School saw the most significant gains. They had a rating of 7/10 in 2017 but have risen to achieve a 9/10 ranking at the end of 2018.
  •        Katy High School falls from 8/10 in 2016 to 7/10 at the end of 2018.
  •        Mayde Creek goes from a rating of 5/10 in May 2017 to a score of 6/10 at the end of 2018.
  •        Morton Ranch goes from a rating of 4/10 in 2017 to 5/10 in 2018.
  •        All of the Katy ISD schools except for Morton Ranch rank in the top 50% of the state according to publicschoolreview.com. 
  •        Note - Paetow not yet been rated.


Looking at this map, it becomes apparent that there is a divide in education quality between the neighborhoods south of I-10 vs. those north of I-10.


However, with Elyson and numerous other new construction subdivisions building new subdivisions in north Katy, that should stand to improve. Additionally, Paetow High is too new to be rated but is on the north side of I-10, and I'd expect its ranking to be on the higher side of the district.


I should also note that Katy High School is overcrowded at the moment, which might explain their dip in student progress scores. High school #9 is expected to relieve some of that.

Hi Rae, I lived and sold in Katy for many years. It is a great market and a wonderful school district. Not sure issues at Morton Ranch will ever go away.
