The teachers are great here! They actually care about the students, and bring diverse topics into their teaching style. The administration is a little out of touch (the dress code is a bit sexist, there are days that snow days could have been useful or unnecessary). The students are okay, meaning some of them don't care and others do. The school's precautions against school shooters are also very weak, many of the things they do to prepare us will not actually help if there is an active shooter in the building.

Great high school with lovable teachers and it grows more and more. The latest extension to the school was a complete remodel and expansion of the auditorium. It looks amazing. The music programs at the school flourish, and there are a number of clubs to be a part of, but no matter what you try out at LPHS, you are sure to love it! I also need to mention the wide array of different classes that fit all interests. You'll be left stuck trying to decide which elective classes to take!
Within our community, including that of the students attending our nearby elementary, middle, and La Porte High School, I would say that we are closely linked together. Since elementary La Porte has gradually started to introduce children together into the community until we reached high school were we all finally get to know our neighbors from nearby and way out far by the county line. This creates a diversity in our community is it shows how despite living in the same county we all live very different lives or maybe even very similar lifestyles. La Porte High School promotes our individualities and independence through their extracurricular activities were the students can decide and form their own organizations through their handmade petitions and suggestions to those around them. Our musical program has always managed to earn gold in their competitions, the band competing in state and participating in popular parade even in states as far away as Florida.
