Louisiana School for the Agricultural Sciences Reviews

As a 6 year student at LaSAS, my experiences have been anything but boring. As a middle school student in seventh and eighth grade, we were given the task of hatching, raising, and harvesting chickens for our science and agricultural classes. We were taught how to care for and humanly euthanize the chicken over several months. As incoming ninth and tenth grade students, we were taught how to properly raise and care for pregnant cows and how to take care of the calfs once they were born. As an eleventh and twelfth grader students were educated on the different types of medications certain animals would intake and how they were injected. Students were also taught the different types of injections and how to administer medications properly. At LaSAS, the agricultural aspects of the school are the main focus aside from the core curriculum classes.

LaSAS is a very unique school. They offer Agricultural courses that made the whole high school experience extra exciting. There are a good amount of clubs that are available to enroll in, considering that it is a smaller campus. I wanted to enroll at LaSAS because a public charter school. That means that not just anyone could go. My sister had been bullied badly at our "home" school, therefore the following year my mother enrolled us at LaSAS. LaSAS has such a friendly and welcoming feel to it. Although we have had many teachers come and go, we have been grateful to have well certified teachers. Since LaSAS is a charter school, poeple from all around the parish are enrolled here. I'm glad to say that I will be graduating from here rather than any other school in the parish.
LaSAS is an excellent school! One of the best schools in Avoyelles Parish. As of 2018, LaSAS has a ranking of an A school. The facility is very nice& clean & the curriculum is rigorous, however it prepares students for their college future!
