Genuinely, my experience at Lee High School has been the best one to help guide me to my future career as wanting to be a mechanical engineer. Since I'm in S.T.E.M., my teachers have taught me a lot about engineering. We would occasionally do lab experiments on the basis of real-world issues, such as a clean oil spill. We 'd go to the field trips a few times a year to hear different types of engineers share what they do for a living and working for major companies like Exxon Mobil.Though, I personally liked the teachers at Lee High School, my math teacher was my favorite because he could teach the lessons properly.

The oldest high school in Baytown, Texas, Lee High school is not only filled with tradition, it also is filled with an immense school spirit. From the staff to the students, they are just incredible. The teachers are so incredibly passionate about their job and will do anything to help a student be successful. This school is one of the few in the Houston area to be an Apple Distinguished school, and I was blessed to help take part in that. My memories at Lee High school will stay with me for the rest of my life. Once A Gander, Always a Gander!
Hello, I am a senior at Robert E Lee High School. My school is a mix of emotions for me. I am the National Honor Society president and am highly involved at school. I played football and currently still do play baseball. Our school is one of great variety and one that tries its best to involve every student at our school. Our teachers always go out the way to help every student they can and get us all involved in lesson's one way or another. Our school is an apple distinguished so we get the benefit of every single student having an IPad and that makes a tremendous difference in our learning. Lastly, our school administrative staff is hands down the best in our district. Always going out of their way to put us the students first.
