St. Landry Parish Public Schools Reviews

I somewhat did not like my school experience because I feel confined and restricted . My school is unable to afford many resources that could make my school a better and more modern learning enviornment. As far as sports, my community does offer many sports, but lack of equipment and drive from the students holds my school back from exceling. I feel is students were more cultured and given more opportunities, they would be more ambitious and eager to learn and advance acedemically. I do like that my school offers many college prep courses like science, english, and history adavnced placement and dual enrollmnet courses. Parents and teachers are also very involved and supportive.

I have attended St. Landry Parish publicly school all of my life. Overall, my experience with them has been well. I have had excellent teachers all of my school career. Also, most of them truly have open arms for all of their students. The only thing I can complain about is the food. I feel that we should have a wider variety of food options each week and larger portions to help get us through the day.
I liked the new JCAMPUS system which allowed parents to view grades, attendance, and tests. If only the teachers would use it to its full potential. I would like to see more STEM courses for the students to enroll in.
