Katherine Anne Porter School, or KAPS, is a public charter high school located in Wimberley, Texas. KAPS serves students in Hays and surrounding counties and is free to attend!
KAPS is different from traditional high schools in many ways. As an open-enrollment charter, we bring together young people from towns like Blanco, Wimberley, Dripping Springs, Canyon Lake, San Marcos, New Braunfels, and Austin. Students come to KAPS for many reasons including smaller classes, alternative courses and an individualized approach to education.
KAPS students don't always “fit the mold.” Here, we embrace differences. Our music and fine arts program is outstanding. Many of our students are gifted musicians and artists, and love to share their talents with others. Each spring, we host an Art Fest and Day of Service to showcase our student's artwork and community service efforts.
Our school looks different, too. We invite you to come by, step inside KAPS to visit and see for yourself the beautiful murals and art adorning our walls. We have a caring team of highly qualified teachers and staff who strive to make the school — and every student in it — a success.
