Jr./Sr. High Principal's Welcome
Dear Parents and Students,
The success of our junior and senior high school is measured by that of our students. Last year in our graduating class of 62 seniors, we had 2 National Merit Semifinalists, 27 AP Scholars, and 4 seniors recruited for college teams. In addition, 76% of the graduating class qualified for TOPS with 32% achieving the highest level TOPS award. Our students were awarded more than $3.5 million in scholarships over and above TOPS.
Runnels students excel in all areas—Academics, Arts and Athletics. We have a challenging curriculum of more than 140 high school level classes, all of which meet Louisiana State Board of Regents Standards. We also offer 20 Advanced Placement courses for college credit. A comprehensive visual and performing arts program along with our wide range of Division II sports add a unique balance to our program. Whether their interests are in the classroom, on the stage, or out playing sports, our students are prepared for college, their careers, and life.
At Runnels, we challenge the individual student. Our committed teachers, staff and coaches guide our students in a community of respect and compassion. We provide quality college-preparatory instruction in a small classroom environment that is enhanced with SMARTboards and 1:1 technology. Each junior and senior high student is issued a laptop for schoolwork to use at our fully wireless campus and at home.
Runnels graduates are prepared to meet the future with confidence and pride. We invite you to visit our campus and be part of "The Runnels Experience."
