Memorial High School Port Arthur
Home of the 5A State Basketball Champion Titans!!!
Port Arthur Memorial High School is a public, co-educational secondary school located in Port Arthur, Texas, United States. It was established in August 2002 after a merger of Thomas Jefferson High School, Abraham Lincoln High School, and Stephen F. Austin High School. Since then, Port Arthur Memorial High School has been the only high school in the Port Arthur Independent School District. It serves most of Port Arthur and a portion of Groves. Initially, the school used the former Lincoln and Jefferson campuses; its new facility opened for the 2009–10 school year on the northern side of Port Arthur. It also has a 9th Grade Center in the Port Acres area of Port Arthur, on the former Austin Middle School campus.  The new site for the 9th Grade Center is in the final stages of completion next to Memorial High School.  Completion is targeted for winter 2018.

When Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and Stephen F. Austin high schools were consolidated, students voted on the name for the new high school.  The top two vote-getters were "Memorial High School" and "Thurgood Marshall High School". In September 2007, school board member Terry Doyle suggested renaming Memorial High School after the late Staff Sgt. Lucian Adams, a Port Arthur native who received the Medal of Honor for his bravery in World War II.
 
Employees of the school district established a museum of artifacts from the three former high schools plus the Catholic Bishop Byrne High School.
