Principal's Message

My name is Kim McKinney and I’m extremely happy to be the Principal of Tomball Star Academy.  I’m very passionate about education and I look forward to partnering with you to provide our students with a rigorous, engaging and high-quality high school experience.  As the parent of two boys age 9 and 12, I recognize the importance of a strong home-school connection.  Parents are every child’s first teacher and I believe that by working together, we can make sure that your child’s social, emotional and academic needs are met.


Before accepting the job at Tomball Star Academy, I served in a variety of teaching and educational leadership roles over the past 18 years, primarily in Tomball ISD.  Some of the roles that I have held include Classroom Math Teacher and Coach, Assistant Principal and Associate Principal.  My academic background includes a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics from the University of Texas and a Master of Education from Sam Houston State University.


My main goal is to ensure that every student is provided the highest quality of education possible in a safe and supportive learning environment.  Working together as a team with our staff and parents, I am committed to helping each student achieve their very best.  Every student is valued and worthy of our best effort.  Thank you for the opportunity to serve your students in this role!
