I love Magnet! We have some of the smartest kids in the school, every time you turn around someone made a perfect score on the SAT and/or ACT. It is an amazing school, there is something for everyone at this school no matter your interest in any field. We have so many regionally and nationally accredited kids with their talents in drawing, vocals, orchestra, and academics (especially science). There’s such a positive attitude here and everyone is so friendly, everyone has a place at Magnet. It is literally a great school.

So far, Caddo Magnet High School has been a great fit for me! I’ve only attended CMHS for a semester, but I can tell that the rest of my high school experience there will be exciting, challenging, and pleasant. I really enjoy my classes, and I’ve developed relationships with my teachers and fellow students. The curriculum encourages me to think deeply, utilize foundational and new skills, and be independent. Caddo Magnet High School, just like anywhere else, has its faults, but that’s part of the deal with any school. I will be honest, if you’re looking for a school very active with sports/social events, such as football or pep rallies, Magnet might not be the place for you. However, academically and culturally, Caddo Magnet High School is at the top of Shreveport’s list! I think you’ll find that no matter who you are, or what you’re interested in, you will fit right in!
My overall experience at Caddo Magnet High School has been great. The classes challenge me and make me feel prepared for college. Although the workload may be challenging at times, I know it is pushing me to be my best academic self in the Gifted and Talented Program. I also got to delve deeper into music studies as CMHS has amazing music programs like orchestra, band, choir, and the talented arts program -- music and vocal. In addition, CMHS has many opportunities in visual arts like pottery, art classes, and the talented visual arts program. All the teachers and staff are kind, supportive, and always willing to talk. The school atmosphere is very laid back because the administration is very trusting that the kids do not misbehave. In fact, we have not had a fight in four years! I also came to build many of my closest friendships at this school. I definitely recommend attending Caddo Magnet High School if you live in Shreveport.
