La Porte Independent School District Reviews

La Porte High School changed a lot over the course of my 4 years of attendance there. It was definitely not the worst school to have gone to, yet their standards were never up to par in some departments.

The school used to embody its pride and is now over-exhausting itself trying to get kids excited and engaged. The administrative staff blows over real issues effecting students and go after unimportant matters.

Overall, La Porte High School needs to rekindle its fire. A healthy balance of work and play is good for anyone, much less students. Also, you only benefit from knowing what your priorities are.

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.
