While I do agree with how the school tries to help its students. The website doesn't provide parents any contact info via e-mail or other forms. The only way of contact is through phone. Also, there is an overwhelmingly showing of bullying by peers. Though bullying is in every school, i have yet to see anything done about it in this one. Kids go day to day and teachers just feign ignorance to the fact of the bullying. I find this a major issue.

They are giving the children the best education in all fields not just in the classroom

Thibodaux High School is excellent in my opinion. We had our child at ED White where we spent $7000 for tuition and got very little for our money. The teachers at THS are kind, helpful, and a lot more Christian in their treatment of the students. They actually try to help the kids as opposed to ED White where the teachers try to trip up the students.

This is an awesome school. A place where young people are educated and build the friendships that last a life time.

The academic programs or Ok, but the only program geared to help black students in particular I find is not supported very well among the school nor the school board. Especially if your child is involved in sports. This is the only positive program for our black youth and they have to choose between their love for sports and academics. The level of parent involvement is poor.

Thibodaux High School has no academic programs for students who wish to take AP or IB courses at all. The administration is terrible at helping students or showing encouragement of any kind to the students. There are several great teachers at the school and the extracurricular activities are outstanding.

Thibodaux High School is a very well managed school. The teachers there are so respectable. I know for a fact that if I would ever need one on one help from a teacher, I would recieve it. The principal, Mrs. Shelba Harlan is a very nice and well in-tact person. She is firm about her beliefs and decisions. She is only interested about the well-being of the students. She along with all of the other faculty and staff tries to make all of our(the students) memories of Thibodaux High the best they could be. I really enjoy the fact that I can refer to this webpage and read or help other people to truly understand what really goes on in the school itself.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Louisiana used the Louisiana Educational Assessment Program for the 21st Century (LEAP 21) to assess students in grades 4 and 8 in math, English language arts, science and social studies. The LEAP 21 is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Louisiana. The goal is for all students to score at or above basic on the test.

In preparation for new assessments in 2014-15, Louisiana is including more common core aligned content in LEAP and iLEAP tests in 2012-13 and in 2013-14. The percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change.
