School History

Kleb Intermediate is named for Conrad Kleb, an immigrant who settled in this area from Wehrda, Hesse-Cassel in Germany. He landed in Galveston on Oct. 29, 1946 and migrated to what is now the area of Klein. Conrad’s great-great grandson, Thornwell Kleb, and his family helped dedicate Kleb Intermediate in the fall of 1981. The original school was located on Stuebner Airline Road. In 1993, a new, larger campus was opened on Louetta Road, which is the current location. Today, David Kleb and his wife Nan, along with their family, reside in the area and continue to provide the campus with rich, German heritage. In 2011, Kleb Intermediate had its 30th anniversary as a school in the Klein ISD.

Core Curriculum

Kleb has a rich and rigorous academic program that follows the Kleb ISD curriculum for instruction. Teachers in each content area work closely together to provide a sound instructional program to ensure student success.

English Language Arts (ELA)

In addition to reading being such a fundamental and enriching activity, it is a vital part of studying. Students at the intermediate level expand and develop their reading and writing skills. Students learn such skills as writing for various audiences and purposes as well as how to analyze both fiction and nonfiction works.

Math

Math at the intermediate level builds the necessary foundation for future math courses, such as Algebra, Geometry and Statistics, as well as life. In addition to skills such as quantitative reasoning, algebraic thinking, probability, and spatial reasoning, students also gain skills to help them be financially literate and make wise financial choices.

Science

Kleb students get instruction to learn science skills and content in new and exciting ways. Students use the scientific method and proper lab safety while conducting experiments to experience science hands-on. Intermediate level science engages students in several fields of study, including biology, astronomy, environmental science, anatomy and physiology, physics, and chemistry.

Social Studies

History, geography, economics, government, and culture are several topics of discussion in the intermediate social studies classroom. Students learn about the importance of being an active citizen in their community, how to function in a free enterprise society and appreciation of the democratic values our state and nation are built upon.

Special Programs

Kleb is proud to be home to several special programs designed to help students succeed in both academics and life. The Pre-Advanced Placement (AP) and Gifted and Talented (GT) programs challenge students with higher-level thinking and advanced academics. The Fine Arts department offers a variety of artistic endeavors for students to engage and participate in, such as choir, band, orchestra, drama and art. The theater arts department is even partnering up with Houston’s own Alley Theater to take theater to the next level. Technology-based electives are offered here -- such as Principles of Technology, Gateway to Technology, Digital Design & Media Production, and many more! The Making Connections program offers support to Kleb students on the Autism spectrum. P.A.T.H. is an elective course students take to learn more about post-secondary academics and plan for success. Credit Recovery (Edgenuity) is a program available to students in each grade level to assist them with any core content area throughout the school year.

Athletic Programs

The Kleb Athletic Program is committed to instilling sportsmanship, teamwork and leadership in its student athletes. These Bearcubs have brought pride and numerous district championships to Kleb in the school’s 30-year history. Students have the opportunity to compete in cheerleading, football, volleyball, basketball, track and field, cross country, swimming, and tennis.

Other Clubs / Extracurricular

An active student life community at Kleb offers a variety of clubs to suit student interests. Students can explore core subjects even further with organizations such as the Math and Science clubs, or work with their creative sides with the Art and KISS (theater arts and debate) clubs. The campus is proud to offer a news production club showcasing weekly information and highlights for students and parents called "Kleb180", which is operated under Digital Design & Media Production. Student Council allows students to take a more active role in their school while National Junior Honor Society helps students celebrate their academic accomplishments. Kleb is also home to award-winning Destination Imagination teams with one team making it to the global competition level during the 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 school year!

All of these student clubs help engage student curiosity while also teaching leadership skills and community engagement. In addition, Kleb Intermediate is a No Place for Hate campus and a four-year recipient of the No Place for Hate award.
