I do not understand. Who is in charge of this town and its future. They say the School Board has the control but this affect the TOWN of Ville Platte. A Parish Seat that does not have a public school? What does this say for the future of the town. Maybe another Evangeline parish town should represent the Parish. Is VPHS really in that bad shape? Word in town is that they fixed up the the school and the students tore it up. If the students did tear the school up I blame the teachers and officals. Get control. Shame on you.
Bye Bye Ville Platte High

Its not the teachers its the parents that use the school system for a day care. You can build all the new schools you want but if the kids are raised like animals they will abuse it. It is sad for the kids that want to learn because they suffer for the bad.

YOU ARE RIGHT. NEW SCHOOL DOES NOT HELP KIDS MAKE BETER GRADES. THEY WILL MESS IT UP JUST LIKE THE OLD ONE BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO RESPECT FOR ANYTHING.
AND WHAT IS THE DEAL WITH THESE STUPID SAGGING PANTS THEY WEAR TO SCHOOL. THAT LOOKS REAL NICE.

If there is a new school built it won't be in Ville Platte. The site is out of town and will be difficult for the kid to get to. No more walking to school. Who picked that site. What is our school board thinking ?????? Poor leadership and judgement on their part.

Well, here's a BIG thanks to the Pine Prairie school board member and present school board president. Due to his instrumental push to "reorganize" Evangeline Parish schools a few years ago and against the wishes of the people that he represents in Ward 4, he voted in favor of "reorganization" so that PPHS could have a football team. He will now have his beloved Alma Mater become home to Ville Platte High School students. Hope it was worth it, Mr. President. Let's just see whether your grandchildren will reap what you sowed or whether hypocricy will be displayed by sending them to private/parochial schools.

I would like to know why just one person can dictate where our kid go to school, I think if enought people would stay up for what they want ,that we could changes things. The people from Pine Prairie just used their tax money to re-build their shcool,why should ville platte kids have to be bused 20 miles or more just to go to shcool,I am sure they would like to stay close to their home town also.

I was glad to hear that the City administration is taking a stand with the School Board to fight the closure. This shows leadership. Thank you for seeing the value in our kids. Maybe the Justice Department will find an alternative plan.
