  • Reviewed by Community Member on December 08, 2010
  • Rating: 5 (5 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • Located near Galveston Bay, La Porte High School is one of the best in the state. The student enthusiasm is great. Test scores are high, and seem to be improving every year. The school lunches need to be improved, but fresh fruit and more nutritious menu items are now available.
