Living in Porter Heights gave me a great opportunity to nit be close to the city but also have a good education. Most of the time it is a quiet place with nothing going on. 1314 can be a little crowed at time in the morning and on the way home.
Porter Heights is an area outside of Houston, Tx. A lot of middle class to low-class families live in this area. I would love to see more litter being cleaned up from the stress and shopping areas.
I have lived here my whole life and I can say that I have enjoyed these years. I can go to parks and hangout with friends or run on trails near the college. It's small but peaceful area there isn't much crime here and I feel safe on the streets. There are many schools in the area and they provide a good and safe place for learning for the young ones. I live about 3 or 5 minutes away from the school so I arrive to school pretty fast. In addition to this there isn't much trafic which really helps in the morning when I have an early morning or running late. It's easy for people to find their way around here because it's very simple but the people here are very welcoming and don't really bother you much so it nice. When someone has a cookout it normally lasts until the morning and no one seems to have a problem with is so it's normal to people have cook outs.
Awesome place to live.Very quite neighbors.The crime is low.Would love to see family and friends move here.Only a short drive to stores and schools.Gas prices are below average here.Nice seeing friendly neighbors walking their dogs and kids playing outside,riding their bikes,playing catch.
Porter is a small town where everyone knows everything about everyone. There's not a wide variety of diversity but everyone treats people like they're their own. There's Friday Night Lights that always has the town all riled up, 1400 taco stands, and you can never go to the store without seeing someone you know. Whether it be your 3rd grade teacher or your friend's momma, you're never quite "alone". Porter is a family town where you can just connect with the people around you.
I like how it is a mostly pretty close knit community, but I am very heart broken to see all the trees and forests around our town, get chopped down just to turn into another shopping center like plenty others you could find by simply driving just five minuets north down the highway. Regardless of how town visually looks based on the land scaping, a frequent issue occurring is all the flooding that has been happening majorly effecting one of our towns two high schools. Due to all the new concrete and lack of forestry and trees all the water has less places to absorb into the ground and is forced into the city's drainage until it overall becomes full and water begins to drain off in the only places it can and pooling in mass amounts in all of the low ground areas.
porter is amazing. I moved here in 2010. I've loved this city. the diversity is so amazing here also, I've made many friends here in porter. I currently attend porter high school and the school is amazing. I like how the school has a cte program. they really help you on the path to your career.
I've lived here for 9 years and it has been a very comfy experience. It's very close to the city and in the middle of a lot of places. It's only 10 minutes from king wood and 25 minutes from Houston. It's also been a town on the rise and going to become a very popular spot sooner rather than later.
The schooling district is awfully strict and stressful. There hasn't always been a lot of places to go until the past couple of years. It isn't plaything special.
Porter Heights is a Lovely small town where you can run into anyone and everyone, the community is so involved into the school events and in there kids lives
I like living in Porter for many reasons. Namely, less traffic than other suburbs around. Additionally, it is close to Houston, but not inside Harris County, so we can have bonfires and shoot fireworks! The area is growing rapidly. There is a new shopping center and soon to be healthcare center.
Porter, or Porter Heights, has been an unfortunate time in my life. The monetary prejudices, and the reverse prejudices for education about tremendously. The town is regressing as others around it grow and prosper.
Porter is a nice town to raise a family. The issue is that you will be quite far from the city of Houston. This may be an issue for some who have to commute for work. Overall, the city is not a very wealthy city but the people there are, for the most part, friendly. Porter High School is a newer school that falls short in academics in comparison to New Caney High School, however that gap is narrowing. There seems to be ongoing construction with newer housing developments with an influx of people moving north on 59, so a lot of new faces seems to be the new norm.
