CLHS is the best high school in not only Lafourche Parish, but in the Tri-Parish Area. Being rated an A-Rated School for two years now, it is evident that Central Lafourche has a very high standard when it comes to its academics, all while offering a wide variety AP, Honors, and Elective classes. CLHS is home to one of the only AP Psychology Courses in the state of Louisiana. Our Athletics are not only top-performing but our clubs and organizations are welcoming and heavily involved. From our World-Class Trojan Lancer Band, to National-Titled Cheer Program, to the State and Nationally Acclaimed National Beta Club; we are a school of dedication and epic proportions. The student body, faculty and staff all call CLHS home and as such, are greatly spirited. At Central Lafourche High School, we are a family and we are all proud to say that we will forever be Trojans.

Central Lafourche High School is a grade-A institution home to multiple athletic, academic, and arts organizations. The faculty and staff hold the highest expectations of students in their endeavors to strive for excellence. Students are encouraged to push themselves to the best of their academic abilities and to participate in the extracurricular activities offered at CLHS. The students and staff often work together to promote school spirit and positivity.
My time in High school has been very much like a rollercoaster. CLHS gets there students college ready, but every teacher is different and alot aren’t as good as others. The school offers many clubs and organizations that provide great memories. Administration sucks because of how they always think they know what the students want. The school is run like a military academy.
