I will enjoy introducing you to the communities which make up the Greater Clear Lake area.
Clear Lake City, the southeast corner of Houston and the home of NASA, was incorporated by Houston in 1977. The Clear Lake area has maintained its own identity, partly because of its unique characteristics. Clear Lake City is surrounded by small communities: Webster, El Lago, Nassau Bay, Seabrook and Taylor Lake Village which are all on the north side of the lake. Clear Lake Shores, Kemah and League City are on the South side of the lake. The actual Clear Lake is not a large lake, but provides a channel into Galveston Bay.
These areas are all serviced by the Clear Creek Independent School District.
The district has five high schools and numerous elementary and intermediate campuses. It includes parts of both Southeast Harris County and North Galveston County.
