Vermilion Parish Public Schools Reviews

The Vermilion Parish school district has provided me with the educational tools to succeed. In Kaplan, the saying “once a pirate, always a pirate” rings true as many teachers, staff and coaches are former Kaplan High School graduates who returned to Kaplan to share their education. It’s because of this dedication that Kaplan has become and continues to remain an “A” school and is recognized for their success. Kaplan High School sports never disappoint and have unbelievable community support. Many of the coaches were once Kaplan Pirate athletes and return to Kaplan because their heart is here. I definitely feel that my elementary through high school education has me prepared for a successful future.

My experience was not all that great. Throughout my career within the Vermilion Parish School System, many things that should not take place within a school have. The teachers are no where near prepared to be teaching us. Especially when they're learning it the day before we are.
I liked the staff and the attention they give to the students. I would
Like to see a change in the athletics dept.
It would be nice for the coaches to help top athletes get into college.
