HistoryEdit

The high school was originally the only one in the area before Brazoswood High School opened in September 1969 to serve the communities of Clute, Lake Jackson, and Richwood in the Brazosport Independent School District (BISD). The opening of Brazoswood High School created an immediate rivalry between the two schools that is still alive today.

AcademicsEdit

In 2007 Johns Hopkins University referred to Brazosport as a "dropout factory" where at least 40 percent of the entering freshman class does not make it to their senior year.[3]
