Kerr High School is one of 5 High Schools in Alief ISD. A school of choice, students are encouraged to come here to get a jump on college preparation. With no sports, Kerr's fine arts programs have exploded. We have strong music, art and speech and debate programs. But the biggest family in the school is Cadre Kerr. With 800 students, Cadre Kerr's family is 120 or more strong. We create a loving, supportive environment that gives to others first and helps to lift all of our members to the top! We excel because we strive to make every member of our troupe stronger and everyone works to make the group successful because we care. We have taken 1st place in Makeup Competitions and Tech Challenges at State Thespian Festival as well as many National Qualifiers, advamcing in UIL One Act Play competitions.
