South lafourche high school student shot to death

South Lafourche High School is a public secondary school in Galliano in Lafourche Parish, Louisiana, United States. It has a Cut Off postal address.


A part of Lafourche Parish Public Schools, South Lafourche High currently serves the coastal towns and communities of Larose, Cut Off, Galliano, and Golden Meadow. It is the result of the 1966 consolidation of the former Golden Meadow and Larose-Cut Off High Schools. As a result both former high schools were designated junior high schools and, in 2002, middle schools. South Lafourche High School was founded in 1966.

Originally South Lafourche only provided 10th to 12th grade, but during the 2002-2003 school year the 9th grade was added and removed from the middle schools.
