Airline High School is a secondary school located in Bossier City, Louisiana, United States.

History

Airline High School was constructed in 1963 by the Bossier Parish School Board, opened to students in 1964, and was accredited in 1965. By an act of the 1966 Legislature, Airline Junior College was established. Its name was later changed to Bossier Parish Community College. Both the high school and college were housed in the original building until 1980, when a separate building was built to house some of the college classes and administration. The Nordic Viking was chosen as the school mascot, and Columbia blue and navy were selected as school colors. Major additions to the campus include a stadium, a track complex, and baseball and softball fields. Girl's athletic dressing facilities were added in the '90s. The most recent additions are the Airline Strength and Conditioning Center located on the west side of Parker Gymnasium. In 1992, the Bossier Parish School Board and the City of Bossier jointly began the School Resource Officer Program. The program placed a police officer on Airline's campus full-time. In 1997-98, Airline wrote a new page of school and parish history by introducing the 4 x 4 block schedule, giving students the opportunity to earn up to eight credits per year by taking four classes in the fall term and four classes in the spring term. The block schedule allows for the addition of enrichment courses to the curriculum and offers students more opportunity to take courses that will prepare them for the future. Airline expanded once again in the 2006-2007 school year, incorporating the old college administrative building. This building is designated "D-wing" and houses the counselors and school registrar, along with classrooms D-1 through D-8. In 2012, the school added a new scoreboard and stadium seats in the football stadium; in 2013 a tenclassroom modular building was added beside the girl's gym. Furthermore, through a bond passage, major construction/renovation began campus-wide in the summer of 2014, with construction of the first of two three-story wings starting in spring of 2015. The construction project was completed in August 2018. In addition to its building and facilities, Airline's student body and faculty have worked to maintain high standards in academics, athletics, and extracurricular activities. The curriculum has continually been expanded in order to meet changing student needs. Major curriculum changes include Distributive Education, Cooperative Office Education, Junior ROTC, Special Education, Community Involvement, Human Anatomy, Novice Teaching, ACT Prep course, AIM (gifted program), dual enrollment courses through both Bossier Parish Community College and LA Tech, and several AP courses.[4]
