Port Barre High School Reviews

As a senior at Port Barre High, everything has happened the past 5 years I've been here. My 7th grade was a scary experience because it was a new environment for me. The first week was rough because I'm shy but I had made some really great people who I'm still friends with. Even thought a few of the teachers weren't my favorites, most of them were. They are truly gifts from God. They care about us and treat us like we're theirs.
Although my school is a B school and is the only school with high academics in all of the St Landry Parish public schools, we have our flaws. My school is more than 100 years old. Thanks to the flood in 2016, my chemistry teacher had to move to a new classroom because it was flooded inside. Mold was starting to grow and it was not pretty. Something else I would change is the where we have our "recess". I would like if we could go anywhere in the school during our breaks and not just squished together.

My experience at Port Barre High was a unique one. I have learned so many things from not only the teachers but the students also. I have met so many people who come from different places around the world. Some may not only speak a different language but they also have different cultures. If I had to go back to high school and do everything over i wouldn't because nothing would be the same.
At Port Barre High, I have earned good grades thanks to teachers that care. I am able to take honor classes and AP classes and have a 3.86 grade point average. The principals and guidance councelor are amazing and helpful. Also, there are two clubs that I participate in which are Beta and Future Farmeres of America. Another thing is that I love playing sports thereore, I participate in baseball and football at Port Barre High.
