School Reviews

  • Recommended August 16, 2010 - 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. - Posted by Student/Alumni
  • Recommended December 10, 2007 - 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 - Posted by Teacher

Are the Three Rs Robbing our Children?
For far too long the American public school system has failed to address “out-of-school” factors like poverty and their impact on what happens in the classroom. As the nation continues to become increasingly diverse, many schools are adopting comprehensive approaches to education that account for the unique needs of students so that each child is prepared for their future and not just for a year-end test.
States Fight to Teach “Ignorant” Science to Students
Wyoming recently became the first state to reject the Next Generation Science Standards because of concern regarding lessons that teach human-caused climate change. Several other states have also taken measures to reject the standards, which has some education officials concerned about the quality of instruction students in those states will receive.
School-to-Prison Pipeline Persists Despite Local, State and National Efforts
Inadequate funding and resources for schools, harsh zero-tolerance discipline policies, police presence in public schools, and de facto segregation continue to create school environments in which poor and minority students have little chance of succeeding. The result is a continuation of the school-to-prison pipeline that has been commonplace in the American education system for decades, despite federal, state and local efforts to curb the problem.
