Kingwood Park High School (K-Park) is a high school located within the Kingwood community of Houston, Texas, United States. Kingwood Park is a part of the Humble Independent School District. On average, Kingwood Park serves approximately 1,700 students.
In 2008 the school was classified as a 4A school and reclassified in 2014 as a 5A school, putting it in District 21-5A. The school's mascot is the black panther, and its colors are silver, forest green and black. In December 2011, Larry Cooper retired from being principal of Kingwood Park High School.

Before the school was built, Humble ISD board members agreed to scale down the building's design. The school was scheduled to allow other Humble ISD students who wish to attend a high school smaller than the ones they are zoned to transfer to KPHS.
