CHOOSING A HIGH SCHOOL IN LOUISIANA
Choosing a high school in any state of the US is an important decision for your future. There are many wonderful secondary school options in this and other states to choose from, but the decision does not have to be overwhelming. Breaking down your decision by making a check-sheet for each school you are interested in can be a great way to compare schools in the state and find the one that best suits your academic and personal needs.

Below are some aspects to consider when choosing an American secondary school. Please note that this information is a general guide and applies to high schools in all states.

Curriculum and programs offered: Given the broad range of choices for secondary level education, it's a good idea to consider what a school's curriculum focuses on and what programs they offer, such as language programs, International Baccalaureate or University Preparation.

Academic and language requirements and support: You should consider what previous grades or other academic requirements you might need, as well as what language-test scores the school accepts. Additionally, consider what kinds of language support services the school offers for international students.

Location: Consider weather and climate of your potential location, as well as the benefits and challenges of small towns, mid-sized cities, and larger cities.

Size and culture: Different students have different needs, and you should consider what learning environment is best suited for you as a student in the US, whether a smaller, more personal environment or a large, bustling campus. You should consider the "culture" of the school, its religious affiliation, its program focus, and its history and mission statement.

Cost: Consider living expenses, tuition fees and all other potential costs, including uniforms, transportation (if you are staying off-campus) and school supplies.

Scholarships, awards and financial aid: Depending on the kind of high school you choose, there may be monetary awards and scholarships for academic achievement, or financial aid based on a student's need.

Other international students' experiences: Sometimes the best information comes from other international students and their families. Consider success stories from other students, and look for online resources that can help you connect with other international students and their families who have studied at the various high schools in this and other states.
