La Porte Independent School District Reviews

I had a really good experience with teachers and I actually learned from them. Discipline is certainly something the school needs to work on. I felt like the rules were very relaxed unless the superintendent took notice and then they were suddenly enforced for a few weeks, only to go back to being relaxed again. There should be a middle ground that the administration should agree upon and stick to. Plans in case of bad weather on graduation day should be reviewed and fixed. La Porte gets called ghetto a lot but I think the new additions and upgrades to the school should help fix that reputation.

I have been in La Porte Independent School district since I was in Pre-k and I've had a very good experience, as it has impacted my childhood in a positive way. Each teacher I've had has taught me things not only about education but about life as well. I would change the Administrations point of view on keeping the school program called AVID. Avid is a class that has gotten me accepted in the college I wanted to attend and teach me how to study in order to succeed in my college life. Another thing I would like to change, due to the horrible crimes committed in schools these days are the drills. We do not practice any time of intruder drill. I love my school and have made many memories.
I liked how most teachers will give you the opportunity to become a better student. I liked how the teachers would be there for you anytime you had a question on something you didn’t understand. I would like for the school to help us prepare for college more. The district somewhat helps with the next path but I feel like they should be preparing us more for the future. Instead of teaching us how to take a STAAR test, I think the teachers should help us prepare for SAT and ACT because those test will determine whether or not we as students get accepted into college. Overall I liked how the teachers care about our success.
