South Lafourche High School is a public secondary school in Galliano in Lafourche Parish, Louisiana, United States.[2] It has a Cut Off postal address.[3]

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.[4] 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.


Between 2015 and 2016, according to the Louisiana State Department of Education rankings, this school's rank increased from a "B" to an "A".[5]


According to the team's website, the South Lafourche football team was state champion in 1971 and 1977.[6] The South Lafourche boys' basketball team won the 1998 Class 5A state championship and was the 1999 Class 5A runner-up. Other sports at South Lafourche High School include baseball, softball, soccer, swimming, tennis, track and field, cross country, golf, and volleyball.
