My experience at Airline high school has been extraordinary. The environment here on campus is so positive and pragmatic. The teachers strive daily to encourage their students to peruse their dreams and achieve their goals. Our staff is also quick to address any issues that arise. As far as the student body, we have an amazing student council who do their very best to ensure everyone’s voice is heard and that together we continue to better Airline high school. Here on campus, we have such a diverse group of people and opportunities. A few of those include Beta, National Honors Society, Mu Alpha Theta, Fellowship of Christian Athletes and we even have a fishing team! Airline is one of the top performing high schools in Louisiana. With that being said, our teachers are doing their very best to prepare their pupils to succeed in the near future. I am so grateful to be a part of the Airline family for the past four years.

I've attended Airline High School for almost all four years. I am currently a senior. My overall experience with Airline was pretty good. There could be some changes such as what color jackets to wear, what hair colors are, and other little things in which I feel like it shouldn't matter. Our education is more important than about how we look. Those unfortunate have trouble meeting school dress code requirements and end up getting in trouble. Hopefully, for the future attendees of Airline, things would change. #GOVIKES!
Airline High School has allowed me the opportunity to freely explore who I am as a young person and discover what it is that I want to pursue in life. With the diversity and several activities/clubs to join, it is a place where I have found my niche. Being biracial, I do not feel at all excluded or set apart in a negative way. There are so many welcoming organizations to be a part of, such as FCA, ROTC, and theater. The school’s faculty even encourages participation, whether that be attending football games or dressing up for spirit days. Unlike many other high schools, Airline is academically inclined and also adheres to the interests of the students. Being prepared for college is something that Airline prioritizes, and the students are given almost every opportunity to do so. In the midst of that, however, we are able to experience life as teenagers and enjoy the moments. I am truly blessed to attend such a safe and providing school, and I would not change a thing about it.
