Description:
Robert E. Lee High School is one of two Tyler Independent School District high school campuses in the city of Tyler, Texas. John Tyler High School is also a member of TISD. Lee High School has served the East Texas community since it opened in 1958. The mascot is the Red Raider. Lee is a 5A-school, which is the largest classification in Texas.

In the 1960s, when Lee's mascot was the Rebel, the school was famous for its working cannon and oversized Confederate flag. A group of seniors tended the cannon at games, firing it when the Rebel football team scored a touchdown. The football team entered Rose Stadium by running under the flag, reputed to be the second largest Confederate flag in the world (second only to one owned by the University of Mississippi). By 1972, the flag was retired and its whereabouts are unknown. The cannon, retired in 1986, is now the property of Brook Hill High School in Bullard, Texas.
