Principal's Message

Principal Photo
Oil City Magnet School is the only environmental science school in Louisiana. Students learn environmental science across the curriculum through outdoor classrooms, an on-campus nature trail, outdoor Math Lab, field trips, and our partnerships with great educational resources such as Project Learning Tree and Sci-Port. Students complete hands-on community projects that help improve their community and instill the value of the lessons they are learning in the classroom. We are located in a small rural area in northern Caddo Parish. Come visit us! The difference is truly worth the distance!
Mike Irvin, Principal
