Avoyelles Parish Public Schools Reviews

I attend Bunkie Magnet High in Avoyelles Parish. My school had provided excellent college-prep classes along with well qualified teachers. I have been afforded the opportunity to take dual-enrollment classes at LSUA. Avoyelles Public School System is continuing to work hard to provide students with a safe and lasting education.

Avoyelles Parish schools have things they need to attend to. There are many things that can be fixed, but when I attended High School, the teachers I had motivated me to be the best I could be. There were moments I felt I wanted to give up and they continuously pushed me. There is room for improvements though. One thing I would like to see improved is the teachers showing more dedication to their students. When a teacher does this, it gives the students the drive they need.
What I like about avoyelles parish public schools, mainly Bunkie high is that we have such a variety of people and we take our academics seriously but also have a good time in class. The things that should change would probabaly be the way some teachers control situations and chose their battles to pick with.
