I've been attending Gregory-Portland's district for three years. The people here can only be described as someone grabbed a bunch of nuts and decided to make trail mix even though they've never eated trail mix before. It's very entertainin, in my opinion. The councillors could be 1000× better for the highschool, they literally kicked me out because I was too stressed to function (a good idea but a terrible one too, I came back with a workload to rival my ancestors on the rice farms). The lunch ladies are super nice, the teachers are amazingly friendly. All in all, I got pretty lucky to be smacked into this tiny town.

Compared to other schools I've been in, this is a good school. However, there's little to no guidance if someone's not familiar with the system. I only had one teacher kindly enough to explain. (Teachers, overall, are great, just not in this aspect.) Not even orientation was helpful: it was assumed everybody came directly from an in-town Junior High. A foreigner, like myself, would feel lost and ignored.

Clubs vary regarding quality. Art club - as much as I liked the advisor - was horribly organized, events weren't year round and lost 90% of their members. The Spanish club is very "hidden", and announcements depend on phones, inconvenient at times. On the other hand, the German club was organized much better and had events year round.

In other areas, this school stands well, (well...maybe too much focus on football) They excel in college readiness. They have a counselor just for that. They also have dual credit classes; classes credited in high school and college!
Like any other Texas High School, but worse. Football is treated like royalty, no matter what. Their actions have zero consequences. Forget anybody else. Bullying is ignored, and the whole school district is corrupt. Spending millions of dollars on junior high sports complex is going to do what to improc=ve our education? Disappointing.
