For them, finding a good school home for their son was a top priority.  "I did my research and everyone recommended Katy ISD as the best school district," said Peter Morcos, Christopher's father.  "We decided to move into Katy and look for a house in this area so that we are able to go to a Katy ISD school," added Morcos.   </p><p style="text-align:justify;">It's been no secret that families are moving west of Houston into what was known as a small suburb.  Communities zoned to the district have been flourishing at outstanding rates making Katy ISD one of the fastest growing school district, not just in Texas, but in the nation.  The quality of education offered in Katy ISD classrooms has attracted families from all parts of the world to what is now being called a destination school district.  </p><p style="text-align:justify;"><a href="https://youtu.be/hy4wlNcTpIg" title="Katy ISD Reaches Historical Milestone of Enrolling 80,000 Students!"><img src="/PublishingImages/Lists/latestnews/AllItems/110918_KDE_80000%20Student%20in%20Katy%20ISD.jpg" alt="110918_KDE_80000 Student in Katy ISD.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:393px;" /></a><br></p><p style="text-align:justify;"><a href="https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ugakv368u3txdq2/AAD8v6dOSjy4DCep3cH0TjJ4a?dl=0">Photo gallery of 80,000th student celebration for newscasts and publications.</a><br></p><p><br></p></div>
