Jan Garber began his career on America’s bandstands as a modest quartet (including his own violin) following World War I. It later emerged as a ‘hot band’ in the 1920s; a ‘sweet’ band in the early 1930s through the early 1940s; a ‘swing’ band during World War II; and back to the ‘sweet’ style permanently in late 1945.
The conoisseurs of the “hot dance music” consider Jan Garber’s 1920s style as belonging to the very best achievements of the dance music of the era. Andy Razaf’s “Louisiana” is a perfect example of the possibilities of that band.
Recorded for Columbia, 1928

It would be Middle / High school. I would also like to know what type of sports programs are available.
I’m origianlly from Louisiana and both my memory and a Yahoo seach knew of a place called "Topys". Could you be a little more accurate, then I can help.
The truth is, Louisiana has an absolutely dreadful public school system in nearly every parish. Sending your kid to public school there is like a life sentence, because a crappy education IS a life sentence.
Hate to be so blunt but it’s true.
The State protects this sacred "homestead exemption" on property taxes and the schools suffer for funding and attention as a result. Better find out where you are moving and get your kids in private school….or else!

What are some of your first thoughts when you hear the state mentioned or see something about it? What are some of your first assumptions when you think of Louisiana people. What do you know about Louisiana culture?
For those who don’t know: No, we aren’t popular for country music. There’s actually nothing "country" about us, unless it is some of the people who’ve moved in from the neighboring states. 🙂 Even the movies get our accents wrong. =)
As for Katrina, I know no one "mooching" off of the government from it. Trailers were given to residents after Katrina b/c they had no other place to go. *IF* the government actually gets these back they get destroyed, not even used for scraps. Whether someone lives in a Fema Trailer or not is there own business. And for some people, moving on is easier said than done.
But some people just won’t be able to understand unless they go through something similar – which I hope none of you have to do.
I think of it as a laid back, fun loving State.
