Live Oak High is an excellent school! It has many diverse programs, from Taking care of the teacher's children in the morning with CDA to helping the environment with the Science club. We also have numerous athletics programs. Baseball, basketball, and many more! Live Oak provides excellent faculty members. Teachers, coaches, even the janitorial members, creates this school's character. They participate in school activities, such as fundraisers and football concessions stands. The school grounds are immaculate and sanitary while showing school pride with posters and pictures with memories throughout the years. Live Oak is a fantastic school, Go Eagles!

My experience with Live Oak High School this far has been great! It's a welcoming school with many academic opportunities. For people who enjoy sports, this is the place to be. Football is taken very seriously and a new baseball field is being built. A wide variety of clubs are offered however, Beta club does not accept freshman. Technology is definitely prominent and we use computers every day.
Live Oak has provided me with the opportunity to meet many amazing teachers and friends, but the school lacks in many key points. The faculty can sometimes be unhelpful when a student has scheduling errors or other issues that must be brought to the attention of the office. The school provides adequate academic opportunities that are better than most schools in Louisiana, however Louisiana's education is not on par with the national level. Parents are involved, but they tend to blame teachers for problems that they have no control over. Some teachers are outwardly prejudiced against minority groups or different religions and when new policies are introduced by the school board, many teachers resist the change but will still roughly enforce the old rules that the school board has made. The school has barely any diversity compared to others, and there is an overwhelming majority of students that are white Christians.
