So sad this school does not compare to the other schools in the district. We had teachers leave in the middle of the year because of discipline. We are being forced to change to a private school for our two in high school.

We moved to the area because we heard schools were good. Well, I have daughters, three, two love dance and theater, and one is my athlete. Drama and dance programs are very limited with little budget. Track and softball are secondary to football. Coming from Shreveport we are totally disappointed. Glad we rented our first year here.

I believe the problem with the majority of these reviews is they are either lee drop outs or seemingly educated individuals unable to see "color" as having every bit of intelligence and deserving of every bit of opportunity to be at a level playing field with the other two Baytown High Schools. Lee has a simply amazing teaching and administrations staff (yes, every school has it's bad apples-staff and students). But FYI in 2010 Lee high school had the FEWEST discipline issue PERCENTAGES (because yes, enrollment wise, they have the fewest students) resulting in the Baytown PD officers having to intervene than EITHER of the other two high schools and remains having the highest teacher retention averages. Just look at all of the AMAZING teachers that are there and have been over 10, 20, some 30 years! You can't tell me Lee H.S. is not doing SOMETHING right! Aesthetically speaking, Lee has also had a major revamp since the removal of the portables & other upgrades. The main problem still remains. You rezone the district to where the student populations is comprised of 70% hispanic, 15% white and 15% black, you're bound to see some evident, yet unwarranted discrepancies. Believe in LEE.

Alumni (2006-2010).The school has great teachers who genuinely care about their students. Secondly, discipline problems happen at every school, this school never gets the credit it deserves and it s frankly sad. Students do respect their teachers here, granted there are very few who don t!? But what school doesn t have a few! that is like debating what is normal? People make exaggerations on the discipline problems" here. I also don t believe that teachers just pass students, I know for a fact I earned my grades and every student for that matter has too. You have no idea what this school is capable of, and there for do not judge based on a few mishaps others exaggerate. The academics and extracurricular activities are great, don't believe but SEE what this school has to offer. Seeing is worth believing. In fact this school has a great atmosphere with much spirit and friendly teachers, staff and an excellent principal to match. Embrace the pride lee has to offer.

Lees staff seems to pass students just to get them out of the school, Safety and discipline is another problem that need to be address by the school administration. Students don't respect their teachers, same goes for the teachers not respecting the students. Students here are more worried about getting respect by their peers rather than coming to school to get an education.

Great Pre-AP & AP Teachers and Distinguished Programs. If your child is smart enough to be in these classes, then they will get a good education. I can't say as much for the students in Regular classes because I've been in those classrooms and they are wild, out of control, and have students that don't even respect the teachers. The principal is amazing and really likes students who participate in Honors Classes, extra sports and clubs.

I think there are many great things about the school. We are the only school in the district with an AP Physics program. We have more students who sit AP exams. The choir and band have more people than the other school in the district who make it to state. Many of our athletic programs are high in rank and the dance team is constantly winning awards. The school gets looked down upon because of the student population and it's not fair. Even though we have roughly the same amount of students the other school is 36% ecomomically disadvantaged while Lee is 65%. Our students have unimaginable hardships that they must overcome and yet they still rise to the top. Discipline needs a complete overhaul because there is not much respect for the teachers. On the other hand many teachers are disrespectful to the students. Lee is doing ok.

Lee offer a wide varity of excellant academic programs. Because of the demograthic of the student population, not all students are able to take advanage of the programs. Safety and discipline is another problem that need to be address by the school adminstration. It is entirely to easy to access the campus without reporting to the office. Also the school student population far exceed the capacity of the facilities, which nesscitate the extenstive use of portable buildings. The school offers an excellant varity of extracurricular activities. The parental involvement at the school is good, but because of economic factors, some parents are unable to be be actively involved.

The level of parent involvment is low. As a first time high school parent; I was disappointed to attend a choir function and see at least four parents participating. However, as a choir parent there was little ask of parents help or get involved. The choir is great! awesome teachers and a variety of curriculum or talents to choose is great. I believe the parents need to be more involve in their children's lives now before we loose them in four year. At this function I attend the stuents had no respect for the teacher or the few parents who did attend. I think more structure agenda and security. I know there is a difference between sports and other extra curricular activities and it shows when I attended the softball sports banquet. The parents were ask for participation. Thanks for the opportunity to respond.

When looking at the academic quality at Robert E. Lee High School in Baytown, you find that it really is not something to write home about, it really needs to face improvement. When asking about the availability of music, art, or sports, you clearly find that the only thing faculty budget draws upon is the football program and maybe a few other sports. The level of parental involvement is slim to none, the parents of the students act as if they really don't care, and it shows in the halls, in the faculty, and in the students behavior. Discipline is not a matter at this school, if you are liked by faculty you get away with anything, and if you're not liked then you better stay out of everybody's way here at Lee.

The academic standards of the school leave much to be desired. There is also the matter of the flagrent disregard for the rules concerning the students PDA (Public Display of Affection). Drugs are highly common among the students, yet the rules concerning drug possesion are sometimes more lienient than those dealing with food fights. Lee High School has been deprived of many of the long standing traditions that keep school spirit alive.The problems are internal and building a third high school will not solve them, only spread the problems out.

I think this school needs a new principal, which can bring back the spirit and also fun activities for the students. During the school year of 2003-2004, many traditions have been taken away, because of this principal which refuses to allow the school to take part in anything that could provide 'Spirit'. I dont think 30 minutes maximum, from certain days, is too much to ask for, to get the students to have the fun and pride put back in, for their school.

Academic Dean requires pre-AP and AP science teachers to tutor Biology for 10 minutes each class period for 3.5 months in preparation for the TAKS science test! This means that teachers cannot cover required TEKS curriculum for Chemistry, Physics, etc.! School also pulls students from elective courses in order to tutor them for taking the TAKS test! Who is teaching the students curriculum materials? Isn't this against TEA policy and the state mandate for education policy?
