I had a great experience with French settlement high school! The students are very kind and fun for the most part. The school inst very big which is great because in the classroom, each student gets a lot of one on one time with the teacher to help them further understand the information. I would recommend French settlement to anyone who is looking for a small town, little population, and very friendly place to be.

High Schoo is getting better with new principal making good changes, behind because of being a small school in Livingston parish, the parish focuses on the larger schools in Denham Springs, Walker, Waston area.
School could have an Arts, Dance programs, also Football, Hopefully in the future they will see the great talent at this school an provide them with more!
I love this school especially because of its relatively low number of students. In class, this allows for more one-on-one between teachers and students and allows for more interactive class discussions. Food is average with not many choices available. This is a blue-ribbon school, and it certainly shows in our test scores. The teachers, for the most part, are excellent and care very much about the success of their students. French Settlement's basketball program certainly stands out over the few other sports it offers, with the girls' basketball team making the playoffs in 2017. The school has begun incorporating more AP and honors courses this year, an upgrade from nearly no college preparedness courses available in years past. Overall, this school is much better in person than on paper.
