Investment in more high school buildings *not* portables, invest in more STEM programs throughout schools and get rid of the TOPS high school programs not allowing freedom within schedules beyond core classes!

My experience in St. Tammany parish public schools was quite a journey. Every year was a knew and fun experience from freshman all the way to senior year. I think my public school Lake Shore high was one of the best high schools within the St.Tammany parish school districts. My most memorable year at my High school was my senior year PROJECT GRADUATION it was our class party for all the graduating seniors. Project graduation is thrown by the high school parents of the seniors. They party they through was absolute phenomenal! What im trying to get at is that im very lucky to have attended St.Tammany parish public schools and gone to Lake shore high because it was a school filled with involvement of parents and students making the school year a blast for me and my friends.
While attending St. Tammany public schools for the past six years I can definitely say that the district is extremely community oriented and the people/ teachers/ administration are all friendly. Throughout my time in the schools campus’s, I have gotten some of the best education and feel safe within the community. The clubs and sports are entertaining and helps students to feel more included and also have a good time.
