The School

Grand Cane High School, incorporated in 1883, was the first accredited high school in the State of Louisiana. The school has had four different buildings, with the last one constructed in 1925.

The Closing of Grand Cane School

An article in The Shreveport Times, dated May 28, 1967, stated, "After 82 years, the flags at Grand Cane School were hauled down for the last time and the oldest school in the state closed its doors forever. Children closed their books and the rooms stand silent." This announcement of the school's demise was premature.
