I would like to see teachers that are hired based on merit, rather than connections to other faculty. Some female coaches and security staff were unprofessional and there is a plentiful variety of scandals that were publicized and distracting to students. There have been incredibly juvenile actions by administration and mismanagement of club activity funds. Even after graduating, rumors and scandals circulate within the alumni and clearly, the school has deteriorated even further underneath the leadership of a choice few. Having parents enroll their children in that school is perhaps not the brightest idea, when in the Houston area, there are magnet schools available that properly prepare students for college.

The teachers at my school were above average; not the best you've ever heard of, but a lot better than other schools could provide. Counselors were very helpful when you needed them (for psychological and scheduling). By far the best teachers there were in the history, science, and math departments. The fine arts department was the hype of the school. Choir always getting straight 1's, as well as the band and the orchestra. The band advanced to state the 2017-2018 school year, and I had the pleasure of leading them along with two other drum majors that made my years at PHS unforgettable.
Porter High is an average school. They offer the usual core classes and some college enrollment classes as well as some advance placement classes. Sports is something this school takes pride upon. Having send offs and peprallies in order to show school spirit. Though I must say, school spirit here isn’t one of its [Porter] strong suit. Being enrolled into this school just last year, I could already immediately tell it would be totally different from my uniform only, stricted, former school.
