School Reviews

The quality of the academic programs are great, as long as the student is willing to take full advantage of them. Availability of music, art, sports and other extracurricular activities are good. They could use another forign lanugage though. The facilities are great, especially with the new addition. While I was attending this school I had access to all the technology I needed, as well as reading materials. It all depends on the parent, but their are many opportunities for parents to become involved if they want to.

This school is a very powerful acedimic place. it is filled with very smart students i observed one of the classes last week and i saw a lot of potentioal in rhe students. If they continued to apply themselves they will be a very succesful school like all the others they will recive a bundle of money such as grants and more like they did last year when they rose there scores. If you noticed the 9th graders that are sophmores now helped a great deal. they have risen the scores for the middle school when they were in the 7th grade . I highly reccomend this school to be one of the best. As there school modo is this year they are striving to be the best school in Iberia Parish
