This school offers many opportunities such as dual enrollment, STEM, and other higher level courses. The teachers and staff are extremely friendly and supportive throughout your time at SJH. Not only are the academics key, SJH has great sporting teams. For example, the football team was the 2019 State Champs. In conclusion, I would greatly recommend my school as a great public school option in Louisiana.
