Caddo Parish Public Schools Reviews

I’ve loved my high school experience in Caddo Parish. Like most schools, it could use improvement. Funding for many of the arts programs are low if not none. However sports funding is high. This deters artistic incoming freshman from wanting to attend certain high schools, because if you want to thrive in certain clubs and activities you need money. Some other basic things like bathrooms and general cleanliness is a problem as well. However, the rise of AP, dual enrollment, and other college prep classes make those problems seem small. Most of my teachers were well trained and helpful. Of course I’ve had some “bad” teachers too, but who doesn’t? Overall I love my school and I think it’s problems are not that different from other school’s problems.

In my experience Caddo Parish Public Schools is improving but unfortunately
has a long way to go. The quality of teachers is poor. Some school discriminate with the students. Many kinds are grouped together by test scores. There are a lot of failing schools in Caddo. I believe that Caddo can incorporate more community based programs to coordinate teachers, faculty and parents. The behaviors of the students has become a serious concern. Suspensions are increasing at an alarming rate. Schools are in competition with each other instead of working together. Caddo hasn't prepared the schools for national threats as well as they should. Caddo's new leadership has helped improve test schools but if we work together I'm sure collectively we will see tremendous growth.
Caddo Parish Schools are one of the best ! I find it is a friendly competition between all of the schools to see who is the best. My High school North Caddo Magnet is smaller than most because we are in a rural town but, that doesn't mean we are not mighty!
