Ouachita Parish High School is a great place. Gifted programs are top notch, and electives are amazing ways to get interested in art, Spanish, computer, etc. There is a wide variety of sports to choose from as well. Teachers are always ready to help achieve student goals along with an in-depth version of the subject. However, students there seem to be a bit mischievous. Some people who transfer from schools transfer back due to the students, but I have never experienced it. Overall, it is a wonderful place to learn and enjoy!
There are many things I personally love of Ouachita. It has an interesting building design that sets it ahead of competing schools, and it is a place full of diversity. We have tons of people from numerous cultures and people here are very accepting and understanding. Most of the teachers are really amazing and connect with you on a personal level. Administrators interact with the student body and there's always security around protecting the building. Just ask anyone around about Ouachita's outstanding Lion Pride!!! "Forever Ouachita."
