Captain Shreve High School (CSHS) is one of the largest high schools in Shreveport, Louisiana. Founded in 1967, the school is built in the shape of a three-story circular building.

CSHS gained national attention when one of its alumni, author Will Clarke, wrote about his high school experience in the essay "How to Kill a Boy that Nobody Likes". The story, published in Simon & Schuster's anthology When I Was a Loser, was banned in 2007 by a school district in Rhode Island. In April 1980, the actress Valerie Bertinelli performed in the school's talent show with a student rock band; two of her brothers attended CSHS.[1][2] In 1973, Captain Shreve won the AAAA State Championship in football.

Notable alumni[edit]

From 1967 to 1984, Lee Hedges was the head football coach at CSHS; during his tenure the school won district championships and the state championship in 1973, the last time that a Shreveport-Bossier City school has won that title. The CSHS football stadium was renamed in Hedges' honor in 2001.
