La Porte Independent School District Reviews

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.

La Porte high school is an average public school. I like how there is pre-AP and AP classes in which distinguishes the studenta, as well as the majority of the teachers who teach these higher level core classes. However, I would like to see more attention from the administration go in the academic subjects rather than the athletic programs. The school being remodeled is very nice however I think some of the money could go into the school food and making the main building look more nice.
Through my years here at the high school I have been provided with some really top notch teachers. They are not to strict or to lenient, which creates a great learning experience. The younger levels focus on math and reading skills which makes it a lot easier in the higher years.
