School History

Klein Intermediate opened its doors to students in the fall of 1984. The school, as well as the district, is named after Adam Klein, who was one of the original German settlers in the area. He and his fiancé, Friderick Klenk, left Germany in 1848, arriving in the New Orleans area in 1851. He and his fiancé moved west, and settled in Northwest Harris County on 640 acres of farmland. Descendants of Adam Klein still reside in the Tomball area today. Don Rather was the first principal of the school and served in that capacity for 15 years.

Klein Intermediate is rated as a Met Standard campus in Klein ISD.

Counseling Program

The mission of the counseling team at Klein Intermediate is to strive for excellence every day, resulting in academic and personal growth for every child. The guidance program is designed to assist students in achieving healthy self esteem and understanding, and help them maximize their potential across an array of traits. Academic counseling and mediation are two key components of our counseling program. Counselors help students develop the skills needed for education, personal, social and career success. The Klein Intermediate counseling team is dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of all students, so they become productive citizens and thriving adults.

Parent Involvement

The purpose of the Klein Intermediate parent involvement program is to actively promote positive parental support within the school. In an effort to ensure that parents feel welcome, Klein Intermediate has designated a room called the KI Parent Center. Within the Parent Center, Klein Intermediate provides free Mango sessions for parents who would like to improve on their English skills, one-on-one Parent Connection assistance, and specific parent workshops that coincide with students’ academic expectations. As an addition, Klein Intermediate also hosts several parent events throughout the school year, and promotes parent and school collaboration.

Core Curriculum

Klein Intermediate School is dedicated to offering a solid educational foundation in Math, Science, Social Studies, and Language Arts. WE offer on-grade level courses, as well as Pre-AP/GT courses for the varied needs of our students. For students who may need additional support, we offer improvemtn classes at all three grade levels, and we offer tutoring after school with late transportation on Tuesday and Thursdays. Klein Intermediate follows alongside the district curriculum for basic instruction, which is listed as follows:

English Language Arts (ELA)

ELA instruction at the intermediate school expands and develops reading and writing skills that are introduced in elementary school. Writing and reading are the core units of study in all three grade levels. Students are taught to write for various audiences, purposes, and modes; grammar skills; and practice techniques in spelling, word usage, punctuation, capitalization, and handwriting. In reading, students apply learned reading skills in both fiction and nonfiction reading selections. The study of literature also increases in intermediate school.

Math

At the intermediate level, students build a foundation of understandings in number, operation, and quantitative reasoning; patterns, relationships, and algebraic thinking; geometry and spatial reasoning; measurement; and probability and statistics.

Science

At the intermediate level students learn science skills and learn to identify components of the solar system including the sun, planets, moon, and asteroids; systems of the human body; and relationship between force and motion.

Social Studies

In grades K-12, students build a foundation in history, geography, economics, government, citizenship, culture, science, technology, 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.

Some new organizations include a dance club, a drawing club and a video game club. The campus also has a daily after school program for students called Be a Champion.
