School Reviews

I would recommend the school but NOT the band program. The current director Chris Smith is running the program into the ground, along with student morale. He runs the band program as a business for his own benefit and also runs it as a completely different entity from the school and Lafayette parish school board. Students are leaving after their junior year in band to finish their senior year & graduate from another school solely because of Mr.Smith. I think this speaks volumes !!
