Community ratings & reviews

  • (7 years ago)

    This school is wonderful and have lots to offer to students. I believe that most of the teachers really care about the well-being and education of the child. The administrators really support students who desire to further thier education or enter the workforce. I am a proud graduate and past employee of the Mighty VHS and Washington Parish School Board! Go Wildcats!
