    Ouachita Parish High School has everything that all other schools have the one thing that I see as a parent that sets this school apart from the pack is the way the facility will go out of their way to help any student with any problem no matter how great or small. Parents are always informed of student progress but it doesn't stop there. If a student is in need of help they will get the help they need from the facility to keep the grades up and parents will receive more information from the teachers themselves on ways to help their child perform better in all subjects. I could just keep going on but I think you get the point. Ouachita Parish High School educating tomorrow's future today.

    Ouachita is an excellent school. There is a sense of community at Ouachita that often is missing at other schools. The administration is excellent and is very supportive of the teachers. As a parent I am proud to know the teachers care about the students as if they were their own children. Ouachita Parish residents are fortunate to have such an excellent school system. I look forward to sending my own children to Ouachita High.

    If your child is not in sports he or she is treated very differently. They are not considered as important.Children in sports especially football have special treatment. I think all children should be treated equally.

    I went to this school about 3 years ago and the social society is horrible! No one interacts with other groups.... The teachers are always in a bad mood and dont talk to you in a normal voice.

    Parental involvement is not that great ot our school.I give our football coaching staff the highest level of praise as well as our faculty. If you have concern for your childrens behavior at home I can assure you that the ouachita family at the school teaches not anly acedemics but pride and respect as well.

    The school is good in terms of providing a very good and sound academic instruction. The students get out well-rounded and have a very good grasp of the concepts needed for them to further their education. Their parent-teacher organization is such that it is really a partnership of sorts geared towards developing the full potential of the student.
