Knox2Welcome from Dr. Knox – SHSU Charter School Superintendent

Welcome to the Sam Houston State University Charter School System Website.   The SHSU Charter School System is committed to providing a quality education to all students.   Our staff provides a caring and compassionate environment as well as a rigorous and challenging curriculum.  Communication between the parents, community and school is imperative. The SHSU Charter School System website is designed to assist in this important endeavor. The school calendar, upcoming events, Staff e-mail addresses, updated grades for your child, and many additional links to daily school activities can be accessed from the website.

It is an honor to serve the SHSU Charter School System as superintendent. The support and enthusiasm I witness each day is overwhelming. We appreciate the SHSU Charter School System students, parents, staff and community for creating this positive environment. The system continues to strive for academic excellence and fiscal responsibility.

In closing I would like to thank the Sam Houston State University family for the welcoming atmosphere, positive environment, and opportunity to serve as the SHSU Charter School System superintendent. Please feel free to contact me anytime and EAT’EM UP KATZ!
