After the early June 2018 announcement that KHS Principal Dr. Ted Landry accepted a position as Principal of The Woodlands High School in Conroe ISD, Humble ISD shared this news:
From Trey Kraemer, Assistant Superintendent for High Schools (June 19, 2018)
Dear Kingwood High School Families,
Dr. Michael Nasra, a former Associate Principal of Kingwood High, has been named Principal of Kingwood High School. Dr. Nasra returns to Humble ISD after serving the past four years as Principal of Keller High School in Keller ISD. Dr. Nasra’s 16 years of experience also includes serving as Associate Principal for Atascocita High School, Assistant Principal at Ross Sterling Middle School and at Humble High School, and Math Teacher and Coach at Humble Middle School. Dr. Nasra earned his bachelor’s degree at Southwestern University and his master’s and doctoral degrees at the University of Houston. He also was chosen for Rice University’s Rice Education Entrepreneurship Program (REEP) Business Fellowship for School Leaders. We look forward to seeing students back in August for an exciting new school year! Thank you for your continuing support of students.

December 16 is National Wreaths Across America (WAA) Day, a day spent honoring American veterans by holding wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery and 1,200 additional locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea, and abroad.

The KHS Navy Junior ROTC (NJROTC) participates annually in Wreaths Across America. While it is a fundraiser, it’s much more meaningful and important to the KHS cadets to honor the country’s veterans. As a wreath is placed on each grave, the soldier’s name is called out loud, a prayer is said, and cadets and veterans alike salute the fallen hero.

Over a few days in late August 2017, Hurricane Harvey dropped an unprecedented 40-50 inches of rain over the Houston area. The San Jacinto River rose to record-breaking levels, exceeding even the 1994 floods. The entire KHS campus sustained extensive damage. Visit our Hurricane Harvey page for up-to-date information and ways to help.

Pride parade (10/9/10)
A few of the dozens of KHS alumni on staff at KHS! Many were present to serve as grand marshals of the Mustang Pride Parade in October of 2010.
The parade was a first step in an effort by organizers to revive the school's homecoming parade tradition. The practice was halted some years before due to rising liability insurance costs and other factors.
