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!

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.
Throughout my high school experience at Acadiana High, I have found that the overall environment is exceptional. Every day I wander the halls staring around at many friendly faces. Though there is such a diverse number of people, we remain social and excepting to all, both students and teachers. The honors program is well taught by teachers who are willing to go above and beyond to teach their students. Their first priority is their students' success. Knowing this, I am able to rely wholeheartedly on my teacher's help. It has been an amazing experience. Although the honors program is successful, I am unsure if I am fully prepared for college. One issue I would like to see change would be the Honors teacher's pushing the students harder. The reason the students choose the honors program is to well prepare for college, therefore, teachers should treat us as college students. However, I would rate the honors program a six on a one to ten scale.
