St. Landry Parish Public Schools Reviews
My overall experience at St. Landry Parish Public Schools was fairly good. When I transferred to Opelousas High, a public school of St. Landry Parish, I was in somewhat a culture shock. However, it was an academic shock. I was surprised to find that the level an eleventh grader was on, was something that I was taught in ninth grade at my previous school. It is not very diverse, but what can you expect of a school that is placed in a poverty-driven area. I did not feel prepared and still don't completely feel prepared for college. Our math and science departments have always struggled with finding funds for new books, but I feel like the administration is desperately trying to appeal to the school board to help and meet our needs. If I could change something within St. Landry parish, it would be making sure that funds are distributed correctly, and to help students prepare for college better.
I would like to see more emphasis put on the schools in St. Landry Parish. There never seems to be enough funds to supports the schools. In other Parishes schools have upgraded athletic facilities but in St. Landry Parish they are not concerned with upgraded athletic facilities including sports programs and field conditions.
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.
