I don't like this school or either the city of Port Arthur. Especially schools are bad and teachers too they don't care anything about students. We Hispanics and if our race need help in Spanish or other language they won't able to help. The city of port Arthur very very personal when you go to pay the water! The city very ugly needs to fix the streets and the city grass very tall they never cut the grass here
Trust me I've been enrolled at this school since the day it was built. 1st year they gave me a class that require the CATE building but during my 9th grade year CATE building (the building that teaches real world skills) wasn't even built yet. Your attendance WILL be affected somehow even if you maintained a perfect attendance, staff will mess up on many occasions. To top it all off the football players have almost full immunity to the teacher scoldings and are allowed to get away with mostly everything. Academics have little appreciation at this school. They care more about athletics, I'd advised you to stay FAR away from this school.
I urge the TEXAS BOARD OF EDUCATION to please look into the horrible things going on in this school district! We moved from New York and were absolutely horrified from the things that have happened in this short time that we have lived here. Teachers do not care weather students pass or fail, all they want is a paycheck! The VIOLENCE and the BULLYING is OUTRAGEOUS!! My daughter goes to school afraid that she will get hurt everyday! I am at the end of the rope. We have tried speaking with principals, assistant principals and there is just no help! All we have experienced is an abundant of rude and disrespectful staff that get mad when we try to ask for help!
I am a senior at memorial high school and I have to say it is no the worst school ever.I mean all schools have their share of problems quite frankly i don't think it is the teachers faults. The problem is that they have everyone in Port Arthur in one school the school is too packed we cant even eat lunch the lines are so long that by the time you get up to the line lunch is over. And as for the gangs and drugs they do a good job of keeping that out, you hear all of these stories about those things but you never hear about the good thing. I feel that people should stop talking about things they know nothing about.
The <i>Worst</i> school in the history of bad schools. This school has absolutely no potential, the kids are horrible, and the teachers just don't try. My son goes to this school, and every day he comes home saying how horrible the day was. The only things that could possible make the school better would be a replacement of teachers, counselors, and a new principal... At least someone in the military to straighten those kids out.
This school does not deserve any of these stars above because this school is, I think, the worst school that i have ever attended. It has really low passing grades and the teachers don't teach anything except for maybe 8 in the whole school. The point of view that the whole district has is ridiculous, and I saw this in an assembly that we had last year when some of the students were complaining about not being taught and learning strategies to pass the Taks test right before the test is coming. The superintendent said that teachers were not suppost to teach, that we were supposed to teach ourselves and that really made me realize the kind of school that i was attending and that is why i say that this school is one of the schools that are worst in the nation.
