According to GHS Assistant Principal Dana Primeaux, GHS can be proud of their testing results. She states, “The End of Course Test (EOC) are state generated test which are given to high school students and serves as their final exams in each courses. As our test scores indicate students at Gueydan High did an outstanding job on final exams. In all EOC’S 80 percent or better of our students scored proficient or better. This is a tribute to our outstanding, dedicated teachers and the hard work of our students”.
The unfortunate news for GHS is students and faculty have said goodbye to a 33 year veteran.
Edward Rizzuto teacher of the Agriscience Department and the FFA director has decided to call it quits.
Rizzuto states, “It has been a pleasure for me to serve you and your children, and I hope your continued support will extend to the new leadership put in place for next year. The educational endeavor is a journey, not a destination, and can be successful only with the support of the child’s first and most important teacher--the parents. Thanks again to those of you supporting that endeavor through the Agriscience/FFA program over the years”.
