I like how welcoming Lafourche Parish Public schools are. I am a part of a college course where I have to go into schools to observe. The administration was helpful and so were the students. Lafourche Parish Schools are also quick to respond. As I visited the schools, there was lots of diversity and safety protocols. The schools' cultures were very diverse and positive.

Thibodaux high and Career magnet center are nice environments to be able to learn and communicate well. I will truly miss school!
Growing up in Lafourche parish schools was decent. Our teachers were not that attentive to teaching, they expected us to “learn from our peers” as a group. From my experience there were teachers that were dedicated to teaching which I appreciated and some teachers didn’t care for what they were teaching and was straight learning from books. The school grades all got along but some people were bullied by differences and nothing was done about it. The food tasted pretty good. Our learning supplies was pretty good, good enough to learn with. Our schools are just as any other I would say.
