La Marque High School is more focused on Football than a real education. My sons both attend one in 9th the other in 10th. They both play football. They have both stated that the coach does not care if you have a project due and stated that football comes first. The type of education they have at this school is so low I am willing to take a loss on my house to get my kids out of the La Marque schools. The discipline is in the school is a joke. 75% of the teachers do not care. I actually had a teacher grab my child by the neck because he was pushed by another student into her and she knew that is what happened and still took it out on my son. The school did nothing to the teacher. The school district in general has a big bulling problem and does nothing about it. I have brought several issues to the school and get the run around. Can t get teachers or anyone else in the district to call you back. I am happy that my children are no longer going to be attending this school.

I rate this school as below standards for a high shool. Having been a teacher there I have an inside view of the operation. I have an eleventh grade son there and I feel horrible as a parent that I must subject him to such low standards and inconsistencies.

I feel that this school caould use a little more discioline. The students appear to take control of the school. There seems to be so much focus on apperance and not enough on education. My child has been a student at LaMarque high for a little over 2 months and there has been nothing but mess. I have recieved more calls about mess in regards to this school than I have all the years of my child's school years. I see students leaving the campus at will and there are too many students there with parents on staff, which causes a conflict when their child is involved in a situation.

My child is a senior at LMHS and is doing wonderful. When my child experienced difficulty with the Taks test , she enrolled in the specific Taks courses and has passed all of her tests and maintained credit requirements at the same time (of her own free will as I had no knowledge of these courses). Not all schools offered these courses and I love LMHS for providing them. She has a 3.0 GPA. I don't depend on LMHS to discipline her. That's my responsibility as a parent. My child has a vision and I try hard to see that she is prepared for the manifestation of that vision.

I'm a former student of La Marque High [I switched schools], and I have to agree with the majority of the comments. The disciplinary is a joke. I will be honest, I got into a fair amount of trouble, and other schools would've had me suspended; La Marque only assigned ISS [In School Suspension] I think this is because there are so many students getting into trouble, and it is too much trouble for the staff to discipline them all. La Marque has two priorites, Football, and drug searches. They do not care about their students, only their precious Football reputation. Luckily, I was also enrolled in ROTC; Master Sergeant Anderson and Gunnery Sergeant Taylor kept me, and most of the cadets, in line. La Marque over all is a joke.

This school used to be one of the greatest in the Galveston region, but now it has gone way down in academics as well as in integrity. I am disappointed, disgusted, and overall saddened by the downfall of this school. I would not send my child to this school nor would I encourage any other person, too, unless their programs start to pick up, and they get better leaders.

As a student of this school, I can honestly say it is a relief to finally be leaving. My high school education was a joke. Everyone there is a joke. The few good teachers that are there I was very lucky to have. And now as I graduate, they join me in leaving the school as well. My prediction... slowly but surely La Marque will go down.

Negate these other reviews, I graduated from LaMarque in 2005 and our class had the highest test scores in the entire county. I currently have a 4.0 GPA at my University and will graduate in 2009. Many of my friends are also doing very well in college, and about 90% of all my class went to college. I'm currently a government intern and will serve my country when I graduate. I was in the Marine Corps JROTC at LaMarque which is a highly regarded program in the school; it's not just football at LMHS. If not for the ROTC program and the excellent teachers I wouldn't be the person I am today.End of story

I just pulled my kids out of LMHS, 9th and 11th grades, and am going to homeschool now. The program I chose will do a better job. Unacceptable in ratings, but we do have one heck of a football team--the school's priority? It's very sad. There are lots of things wrong with the entire school district. But the football is thriving. Problem!

Mixed emotions re: this school. As a former graduate, I've seen the academic reputation of the school disintergrate for the good of the academic program, particularly football. Teachers range from apathetic to truly committed to the learning of the students; present leadership under principal, T. Weatherspoon, is deplorable; there is no consistency in dealing with disciplinary matters, and there seems to be a lack of conviction when dealing with sagging TAKS performances among students; students who are engaged in extracurricular activities besides athletics are not acknowledged for their accomplishments. That is a shame.

I think that it is a very good school, but that you should add more after school activities for the kids.

My son graduated this year from La Marque Hi. While I was pleased with the adjustment he made after transferring here two years ago, it was hard for me to keep up with his progress since he had very little homework (or so he said) nor did he bring books home. I spoke with the teachers about this and they said some of them did not allow the students to bring books home. This is totally unacceptable to me. How can we encourage our kids to study if they don't have books at home. I am also concerned about the discipline or lack there of at La Marque Hi.
