Bastrop High School1

Bastrop High is a pathetic school. The whole school system in Bastrop LA is pathetic because it is run by stupid people. Advanced placement kids went a whole year without a teacher. The principal is never there. The school is filthy. The superintendent doesn't care about the system or the kids. The assistant principals are incompetent. Football players are given free grades. Kids roam the halls screaming and cursing. Need I say more. Move somewhere where your kids don't have to go there.
Unfortunately I have three kids that go here as I really have no other choice. A school especially a high school is a microcosim of the community in which iit is located. Bastrop is a small town consisting mostly of hypocritical "Sunday" Christians intolerant of the religious and non religious views of others. Because of this the majority of the school's populace is going to have the same attitude. Individually you have some good teachers and students who try to make it better, but in my opinion the school is just bad.
I'm obviously not going to rate a school that both encouraged and then failed to stop (knowing full well that it was planned) to stop unconstitutional prayer during graduation. This kind of negligence costs tax payers millions of dollars every year! Its a waste of time and resources and is completely inappropriate. Shame on this school's administers for failing our kids and failing to honor our countrie's foundational laws.
Not only did one of the faculty provide inappropriate and insulting comments about a student in her care to a news channel, but this school also willfully violated the law with little care and/or understanding of the US Constitution and Supreme Court judgements. If the faculty and administration are unable to grasp the basics of the American legal system, they cannot be entrusted to teach future generations of Americans.
