Neville High in Monroe has been named the most beautiful public high school in Louisiana by Architectural Digest. Dana Jefferson, Executive Director of the school’s Alumni Association, says Neville has undergone many renovations to preserve the 86-year-old building.

Jefferson says Neville is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and that’s something the students and staff are really proud of. She says they are glad they chose to renovate instead of tear down and build a new school.

Architectural Digest recently chose one public high school from all 50 states. Jefferson says they are very proud that Neville has been able to hold on to its location at Forsythe Park in north Monroe.
