High school is a name used in some parts of the world, and particularly in North America, to describe the last segment of compulsory secondary education. It is preceded by primary education. High school is also the name used to describe the institution in which the final stage of compulsory education takes place. In the United States, high schools generally consist of grades 9, 10, 11, and 12, although the inclusion of grade 9 varies by school district.
Lawrence E. Elkins High School is a secondary school in Missouri City, Texas, serving communities in Sugar Land and Missouri City. The school serves 9 to 12 grades and is a part of the Fort Bend Independent School District. Elkins was established in 1992, with its first graduating class in 1995. Elkins received a Blue Ribbon Award from the United States Department of Education in 2002.
