I liked how friendly the staff was to the students and parents, but I would have enjoyed the school better if we had more resources to become successful with. I feel like we all received a wonderful education but it could have been a much better experience if the teachers were more engaged in what we were doing. Another thing I enjoyed were the activities we got a chance to be involved with.

My experience with the Tangipahoa Parish School District has shown me that leading the education system is not only about ensuring a strong education for the students, but also to establish strong relationships with the students in order to heighten their experience during their school careers. By stressing this principle students are able to better receive not only education, but also, become life-long learners. In my experience, the Tangipahoa school district has always strived to give the students the best that is to offer, and this shows in the way that the schools are conducted, and in the students themselves. We are all taught to be life-long learners that are ready to be successful in the world. This mentality, has brought upon me, many benefits, and because of this, myself and others are ready to be successful.
Great experience. Teachers and administration caring and helpful. My daughter has thrived with Drama club and Choir . She has made friends of a lifetime and although not necessarily eager about academics, she has loved the environment and activities. Counselor, Denise Latour is one of a kind and extremely knowledgeable.
