DeSoto Parish Public Schools Reviews

I love how the teachers are dedicated, they want you to improve on states tests like the ACT. They are caring. I wouldn’t change anything about my school or the staff.

Ultimately, everyone has a different experience. Mine has been average. You get up, go to school, go to each class, and then you go home. Nothing special. Of course I'm speaking on my school, others may be different. I feel as though more teachers here outshine others. You can tell who loves their job and who cares the most about the students education by the way they teach.
Not a bad school overall but a few things could change. More clubs and sports, more focus on things that aren’t football or softball. Needs better food.
