La Marque High School Reviews

Despite being on home campus from my freshman to sophmore year (I'm now a collegiate student), I enjoyed going to LMHS. Some may say it's not entirely a great school because of the reputation it's had in the past and the area it's located in, but if you were to overlook all the faults and rumors, it's a nice school. I've made potential lifelong friends here and I couldn't be more grateful. The professors that taught me during those two years prepared me for the college level courses that I'm currently taking. Sure, my schools may have some flaws, but I love it dearly and I am proud to be a cougar.

What I liked about La Marque is the sports, the teachers, and sometimes the food. I played sports and high school at La Marque. I played volleyball, basketball, and track and field and every sports I did good and I was a leader on and off the court. Some of the teachers at La Marque would want a good relationship with you such as the principal, the assistant principal, the counselors and more. La Marque is not a bad school, it is the kids that make the school bad. It can be a great school, teachers and students would have to work together to make it great. The food at La Marque was not good at all, which is why I say “sometimes the food”. For one, La Marque food went on Facebook on had bad there burgers was and how they were just giving them out, making kids sick to their stomach. Which is why the only thing I would eat is the snacks and go on about my day. La Marque was and can still be a good school. One thing I’ll change about La marque is their environment.
I have been a student at La Marque since first grade. It was not too bad until I got to the high school. The teachers do not really engage with the students. Apart from the academics and the sports the environment is somewhat nice. Everyone knows everyone, the principle is nice sometimes. The staff can be nice if you talk to them the right way, which is not always clear. It is a pretty small school, so you can't really get lost. However, it is old. The old gym is not the cleanest. They have a great auditorium, though.
