School History

Kreinhop Elementary School opened its doors in August of 2004 with approximately 900 students. The school is named for August and Dorothea Kreinhop, who came to the United States from Germany. They settled in the Spring-Klein area sometime between 1875 and 1878. Their family home was moved to the Klein School District at Wunderlich Farm on March 28, 2003. The school dedication was held on March 10, 2005, with several Kreinhop family members present.

In the elementary ELA program, the emphasis is on the development of fundamental reading and writing skills. Reading instruction includes training in phonics, structural analysis, sight word recognition, context clues, vocabulary development, comprehension, study skills, and literary appreciation. Writing instruction teaches students how to use written language appropriately. Instruction includes specific training in grammar, spelling, handwriting, word usage, punctuation, and capitalization, as well as more generalized training in composing written expressions. Skills in speaking and listening are also taught with the instruction for reading and writing.

At the elementary level, students build a foundation of basic understandings for the following: number operation and quantitative reasoning; patterns, relationships, and algebraic thinking; geometry and spatial reasoning; measurement; and probability and statistics.
