High School In Houston’s Poshest Neighborhood Breaks Out In Fights (w/Videos)



You might recognize Houston’s Lamar High if you’ve seen the Bill Murray indie classic Rushmore. Lamar played the dilapidated public school in the movie, but in reality it’s in an exclusive neighborhood, next door to the posh private school that played Rushmore Academy. Fights broke out there Thursday; students began tweeting about “a riot,” and the school district tried to downplay it all as a student prank. The videos show the truth lies somewhere in between. Houston Press has the story.
