Based on the 2010 TAKS ratings, CC has 1 exemplary high school and 3 recognized high schools out of 6 altogether. Rockport has 1 recognized high school out of 1.

CC has 7 recognized middle schools out of 12. Rockport has 1 recognized middle school out of 1.

CC has 16 exemplary elementary schools, 19 recognized and 4 academically acceptable. Rockport's 4-5 elementary is exemplary and its 1-3 elementary is recognized.

The numbers speak for themselves. Just because some schools have problems does not mean that all the schools are poorly rated. You need to get over the notion that a child cannot get a good education in Corpus Christi. It's simply not true.

Of course some of the people who own refineries move to Rockport- they know how dangerous and ugly the refineries are better than anyone.

Yes our school board member who used to be a teacher in CCISD is anecdotal evidence, however in your case a little knowledge is dangerous - you already have the PROOF in the low district ratings.

The district's ratings as whole are what the TEA most considers. I didn't say someone couldn't get a good education in CC - there are people who have gotten good educations in prison.

So when you can't prevail logically you resort to insults?

Here are the facts: If you wish to send your child to an exemplary elementary for all five years and to an exemplary high school in CC, you can. If you wish to do so in Rockport, you can't.

If you wish to send your child to a recognized middle school in CC or Rockport, you can.

If you wish for your child to obtain an International Baccalaureate high school diploma in CC, you can. In Rockport, you can't.

If you want your child to attend a nationally recognized Blue Ribbon school in CC, you can. In Rockport, you can't.

Who said anything about OWNING refineries?

Believe me, the people who OWN the refineries aren't in CC OR Rockport!

I'm sure that, being so anti-refinery, you avoid all use of petroleum products....in order to, you know, be all *principled* and stuff....

good for CC. It is always exciting to have your school or school district on this prestigious list.

I am s little surprised I would add, I can't beleive Lewisville/Flower Mound, Keller, Copell or Southlake didn't have any schools meeting the criteria..

Again, congrats.

Well, the cost of living tends to be fairly low here, but job opportunities are limited as well. And yes, the warm weather can be great, but it can also be very oppressive in the summer, which lasts from May through October.

Why don't you read through these threads a bit and see what you think? If you come back with some more specific questions maybe you'll get information that will help you make a decision.

great post, Marlow,, there's no profit in over selling Corpus. We do have our drawbacks, ya know,,, like 95 degree summer days instead of like 105 in San Antonio, or 110 in Dallas, Pretty much a constant southwest 10-15 mph cooling summer sea breezes off the gulf everyday, (warms us in the winter), blue skies everyday with sunshine with very little rain, everyday is a good beach day and with outstanding fishing all the time, of course we have the very best Corpus neighbors in Texas,.,,,, damn~!!! ,,, look at it~!!,,, here IT IS,, on the the 25th of Dec (on Christmas day in Corpus Christi, and it's 70 degrees outside, with <60 % humidly, and there's no snow or other bad weather in sight.) It might get down into the 40's next month for awhile for about a week or so in Jan , and maybe even hit the dreaded 30's for a really bad winter for about three days for a really bad winter, and I'll have to root out a warn jacket for a few days and maybe a cup of hot chocolate instead my usual toddy of Tequila... My bad. By the end of Feb we'll be thinking backyard gardens and BBQ's again with fresh tomato salad. I LOVE Christmas in Corpus!!!!!

We need to be telling people what a bad place Corpus is just so we can keep our little island paradise to ourselves and keep the riff-raff Yankees from moving in. I'm willing to share a little but I'd hate to see Corpus turn into a Houston.

Life is just too short for too many other Texans to discover Corpus. God help us if Hollywood ever gets their head out of their ass.
