School History

Schultz opened in 1994 with 618 students. We are very proud of our rich Klein history. Our school is named after two Schultz families. Herman Schultz arrived from Germany in 1872 and eventually settled in the land where Schultz Elementary is located. William Schultz immigrated from Prussia and settled in the Rosehill community area where his descendants still reside.

School Rating

Schultz Elementary is rated as a Met Standard campus in Klein ISD and received a Reading/ELA Distinction Designation, Post Secondary Readiness Distinction and Reading/ELA Distinctions.

Counseling Program

Schultz is proud to be a long time participant of the No Place For Hate initiative which provides educators and students with the resources to ensure that anti-bias and diversity education are an integral part of learning. We also participate in the Unite for Understanding Council, an active group of parents, community members, district and campus staff, and others who are committed to promoting tolerance.

Parent Involvement

Schultz parents are encouraged to be involved around campus in many ways. Our PTO is very active and is always looking for volunteers to help with the many activities that support our staff. Dads have enjoyed our Watch D.O.G.S. program that allows them to spend a day each year on campus interacting with our students. A community member program also provides mentors to our students.

Core Curriculum

The staff works together to discover what each student needs to be a successful learner and finds a way to help them reach their potential.

Language Arts

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.

Math

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.

Science

At the elementary level, students learn science basic skills and how to identify components of the natural world. Students study life, earth, and physical science concepts.

Social Studies

In grades K-12, students build a foundation in history, geography, economics, government, citizenship, culture, science, technology and society, and social studies skills. The content, as appropriate for the grade level or course, enables students to understand the importance of patriotism, function in a free enterprise society, and appreciate the basic democratic values of our state and nation.

Special Programs

Schultz has several extra-curricular opportunities for students to take advantage of. Beyond the regular music classes, third, fourth and fifth grade students are invited to try out for the Schultz Schockwaves Instrumental group and the Schultz Showstoppers choir. These music programs have won many awards, including several invitations to perform for the Texas Music Educators Association Convention in San Antonio. We also have several before or after school programs available for our students, including book clubs, children’s bookstore, student council, math club, jogging club and safety patrol. In addition, each year fourth and fifth grade students may try out for our award winning Destination Imagination team.

At Schultz, we take great pride in our staff and students. Beyond our focus on academic learning, we spend a great deal of time teaching character education too. In addition to the Nurtured Heart Approach program, Ron Clark’s, The Essential 55 has been our focus for our campus character plan. Our students are divided into two houses that compete in several areas of school, such as character, attendance, homework, etc. The students work hard to earn points in hopes of a house championship.
