My school, South Lafourche, is filled with school spirit. Our students are generally kind and look out for each other. Sports do decently throughout the year here however some coaches are very biased and simply play people they like. The school’s staff is full of amazing instructors who guarantee success in their class, there are a handful who have negative attitudes but overall the teachers are a pleasure to be taught by. Our administration are your average high school administration, nobody really loves them but they keep our school together. My school in general besides a few outliers is a place of spirit, kindness, and learning.

South Lafourche High School is a very welcoming school. The support given by faculty and students is outstanding. The spirit from the students who attend this school is extraordinary. Students are always happy and cheerful. If i had to change one thing about his school though, it would be the deciding process for special nominations such as homecoming court, student of the year, etc. I feel as though students should not be able to vote on whether or no other students should be nominated for such an important process.
With being bias as little as possible, SLHS has provided me with many opportunities to grow and succeed. They have an excellent staff that surely does intend to help students on the daily. If anything could change I hope it is the inclusion of new extracurricular material that may help the less athletic percentile.
