Friendly, award-winning high school seeks students; visit on Halloween day, 10:30 - 12:30 during 8th grade preview or at JAMbalaya Music Fest, 12:30 - 4 pm
Caddo Magnet High might be a good fit for you.
It is a medium-sized school with enough students (about 1100) to provide a variety of course choices (for instance, I teach African-American Studies, Fine Arts Survey and Video journalism as well as world geography) yet small enough to feel comfortable. It has a wealth of sports - lacrosse, volleyball, fencing, gymnastics, tennis, cross country, soccer and more - and the ROTC program provides a world of additional choices - such as orienteering and activities in Rangers.
Magnet is known for the academic tone of its campus as well as its friendliness and acceptance. Yet there are small worlds within the campus: among them the drama family, the theater tech group, the orchestra students, the Quiz Bowl teens, the debaters, the band musicians, the Student Council workers.
Magnet teachers give individual attention to their students before school and after school. Actually, it is a school where the average student submits their homework on time. Yet across the school students are helping each other study and cooperating to make their deadlines.
Please visit the campus and meet students Sat, Oct 31, Halloween, between 10:30 and 12:30. If you arrive later, you may check out Magnet's newest music and food fest, JAMbalaya ($8).
Regardless of the time, if you'd like to visit, we'd like to make it happen. Please call assistant principal Sheryl Thomas, 318.221.2501, to schedule a visit.
