One-Way New York to Katy: Bargain of a Lifetime

I will never forget the day my family arrived in Katy, Texas eight years ago.  I can remember pulling up to our new home that my husband had picked out in a weekend and thinking, “What did we do?” I was extremely overwhelmed. Having been born and raised in Queens, New York and living in the same town for the first 34 years of my life with just a small period of time living in Bangor, PA, everything was so different from what I was accustomed to.

Little did I realize at the time that my family would soon become part of one of the most dedicated, fun, caring communities. A huge part of our community would be our schools.  One of those schools would be Cinco Ranch High School.

For me, Cinco Ranch High School represents more than just a place that my children go to receive a top-notch education.  Cinco Ranch High School represents family, friendships, teamwork, perseverance and, most of all, community.  The community that is Cinco Ranch High School works together through good times and bad times. While my kids are away from our home attending school, I can rest easy knowing that their teachers, the administrative team, and fellow students are taking care of them.  As a parent, I feel honored and privileged to be part of such a wonderful high school.  

The four years that our children spend in high school are also an opportunity for us parents to continue to be involved and participate in our kids’ daily lives. Cinco Ranch High School provides our children with the opportunity to learn more about themselves and us parents the opportunity to learn and grow in our parenting. I can't think of a place more welcoming than Cinco Ranch High School to share our children with and the experience of seeing them grow and become the adults that they are meant to be.

In the eight years that my family has been part of this community, I have come to realize the “what did we do?” has turned into “we are blessed and thankful that we did.”
