Donaldsonville HIghschool is a public school with a decent amount of students that attend there, but the school itself is not what makes the high school, but the staff. Donaldsonville high school is a good school with teachers who care about there students education and their learning experience, but I also love the school spirit when it comes to our school. They show off their school spirit during events such as homecoming.

I attended Donaldsonville High School for all four years of high school. The teachers are very diversed and are great at teaching. By being a below grade C school in a predominantly black neighborhood, we would receive backlash unlike the other schools within the parish who were grade A schools in predominantly white neighborhoods. We were the only school on the west side of the parish while the other schools were located in the East. Thought all of the trials and tribulations, we never gave up and was able to bring our school grade up to a 86% B.
Donaldsonville High School is a school of predetermined course. Students are given two path options: college or career oriented. Depending on your grades, the choice may be made for you. School morale is low, performance is coerced, and there is only a handful of teachers determined to help students reach their maximum potential. This is a school where the athletes shine and everyone else has to have the self-determination to make it out and achieve greatness.
