To me Sterlington High School is the best school in north Louisiana! Sterlington not only provides us with an A+ education, it gives many people with different talents a way to showcase them through various clubs,sports,and organizations. In Sterlington You get that small town feeling in which we all love so much because we are all so close. What stands out most in our school that you don't see in other much anymore is we keep God and America in everything we do! You will see us praying before any function at our school, and saying the pledge of allegiance! I take so much pride in being a Sterlington Panther and honestly couldn't see my self at any other school.

Well, I have attended SHS for 4 years now. For the rest of my days, I will cherish the memories and time spent there. The friends and knowledge I have gained have prepared me for my future. Sterlington High School’s teachers have genuinely prepared me to tackle all the obstacles facing me at college. The influence from the teachers and staff have helped me to commit to Louisiana Tech! Sterlington has allowed me to become a leader in my school and a helper to my community. The options are limitless to me because I have been taught that I am a panther and a panther can do anything!
SHS is a slightly above average school in my opinion. Most of the teachers there are excellent and ready to teach, with a few exceptions. The food is meh, and there aren't very many clubs to choose from besides BETA. I would not recommend attending if you would like your child to be apart of a sport other than Football, Softball, or Baseball. Those three sports are the only ones that seem to get financial backing from the community and school itself.
