Acadiana High School Reviews

Acadiana High School is a great school overall. Most sports programs at the school are well lead and successful. Although the academics are favorable for advanced placement students such as myself, who are naturally keen to picking up material, students in regular placement classes aren't pushed or challenged in class. This is an issue within my school because only a certain demographic is being educated properly in the way of college readiness. While the facilities are not poor there are many improvements that should be made but the overall environment is always kept clean. Acadiana also has many clubs and activities including Beta, National Honors Society, FBLA, Students for Christ, French Club, Battle of the Classes, talent shows, etc. These different activities keep the student body active and engaged in the school and community. Acadiana has left a permanent imprint on my life and I'm very proud to say that I am a Acadiana High Wreckin' Ram!

I have attended Acadiana High School since my freshman year, I am now a senior! I can very well say that I was helped to get where I am now. I enjoyed all years attending Acadiana High being apart of the clubs and extracurricular activities, attending the football games, etc made my journey at Acadiana High great . If I was asked to Recommend a school in Lafayette, La, I would recommend Acadiana High School.
As a junior at Acadiana High School, I can say that it is one of the best high schools in Lafayette Parish! Whether you want to participate in sports or clubs, there is a wide variety of both offered here. From French club to golf, our school is amazing for any personality. Not only are there multiple opportunities for sports and clubs, but the academics here are outstanding. Of course, nothing is perfect and there are faults in our school, but with no doubt in my mind, I can say the good outweighs the bad at Acadiana High School.
