I attended Airline High School through 2014. They provided SEVERAL opportunities for students to get ahead by taking AP and Dual Enrollment courses. Leaving, I was definitely prepared for college. Many of my college professors express great relief upon hearing that I attended Airline, as they realized the academic excellence to which Airline holds its students.

As a student in the Bossier Parish Public School System for all 12 years of elementary and secondary, my experience was exceptional. My teachers were always incredibly caring of their students, always pushing them to do their best. There were always an array of activities and clubs in which to participate, and most schools were willing to create a brand new club in order to include more students. Overall, my experience in this school system completely prepared me for my future endeavors.
Overall, I have had a positive experience in Bossier Parish Schools. I will say that the district lacks diversity in teachers. I believe that through my 12 years in the parish, I've had only 1 African American teacher and she actually moved to a Louisiana. I would like to see more minority teachers in the classrooms.
