La Marque High School is a public high school in La Marque, Texas, United States in the Houston Metropolitan Area. The school, which serves grades 9 through 12, is currently a part of the Texas City Independent School District; prior to July 1, 2016, the school district was a part of the La Marque Independent School District.[1] After TCISD annexed LMISD, the school remained open, and its athletic teams continued to be separate from those of Texas City High School.[2]

The school serves sections of La Marque, Tiki Island, and portions of Texas City. It has a total enrollment of 1400.

In February 2012, La Marque was reclassified as a University Interscholastic League 3A school, down from the 4A level.[3]

Dress code[edit]

As of July 1, 2016 La Marque High has no standardized dress policy since it now follows the TCISD school dress policy.[4]

During the late 2000s through the closure of LMISD, the school had a dress code in which students were permitted to wear solid-colored or striped golf shirts that do not have the colors red and black. Trousers may be navy, khaki, or denim.[5]

Athletics[edit]

From 1995 to 2016 the American football team entered into five Texas championships. Beginning in 1995 it entered the championships three consecutive times, and prior to 2016 its last championship was in 2006. Mike Jackson served as the head coach of the football team up until the closure of LMISD. Once the school came into possession of the TCISD, the position of football head coach became vacant as all teaching positions were cleared of their employees; employees who wished to continue were required to re-apply for the jobs.[6]
