Low quality of life; low property values, high cri Posted On: 7/10/2008 3:07:06 AM
14 years ago I made the mistake of choosing Port Arthur to call home. I rectified it 2 years ago when I broke even by selling my home and moved to a neighboring community. Port Arthur has to rate as one of the worst communities in the country. The weather and pollution from refineries aside, the city lacks leadership, integrity, morals, and vision. The downtown district consists of deserted and crumbling buildings that resemble a war zone complete with the regular sounds of gunfire. The city is overrun with serious crime. The so-called community leaders are jokes; they have their hands out looking for a payoff and are driven by self interests. All facets of the city government are inept, and the local school district is even worse. The schools are low performing and lack discipline. The school board and administration has a history of cronyism, corruption, and just general poor performance. I can't think of one good thing to say about Port Arthur and strongly encourage anyone considering a move there to not do it.
Port Arthur ISD is Bad Posted On: 7/9/2008 7:18:03 PM
All my children attended Port Arthur Schools with my oldest having the dishonor of graduating from Memorial High. The PAISD is a complete joke with a terrible board and administration. It is a reflection of the city; Port Arthur lacks leaders and vision. It is a welfare city racked with serious crime problems and a downtown that looks like a war zone complete with crumbling buildings and the sounds of gunfire. If you care about your children do not even consider a move to this city. If you already live in it, do as I did and get out while you can.
