I will be moving to the area in the next few months, specifically Barksdale AFB. I am in the process of researching and finding a great school for my daughter. She will be in Kindergarten this upcoming school year. I have read wonderful things about the public schools in Bossier Parish, specifically WT Lewis and Legacy, as well as the magnet schools in Caddo Parish, specifically Clairborne and Eden Gardens. Are the magnet schools better than the public schools? I really need to honest opinions so that I can make a decision on where we will be living. Thank you so much

The magnet schools in Caddo Parish are all much better than the public schools. Most, if not all, of the magnet schools received a grade of A last year, whereas, the best of the public schools, A.C. Steere, received a B. The majority of the public schools received D's or F's. Claiborne & Eden Gardens are great, but South Highlands is considered the best elementary school in the entire state.

If you live in Bossier, you really should consider a Bossier school. Demographics are good and you won't have as many political issues to contend with as Caddo school board is going to shake things up in the coming months with the departure of their Superintendent Dawkins (his contract was voted not to be renewed) so he'll be gone by summer. There's simply no telling what fresh administrative messes will take place in the months ahead as the board is so devisive. At least in Bossier you won't need to wonder too much about direction the school board is going to take.
