I do think that the administration in the past relied heavily on parents just knowing what was happening because that's what was always done. IF you were from out of state, or this was your first child, you always felt confused and lost. The administration rarely returned calls and seemed frustrated when they did. That was my experience the first could years but recent changes have made all of the difference. I feel like everything is now well communicated and responded to. Massive improvement. Main office administration aside, this is an amazing school. Great teachers who honestly care about your kids. Strong focus on goals, achievement and success. They work with the parents to get the best out of the kids.

The administration at this school won't return phone calls, very unfriendly front office staff, especially if you aren't from Louisiana.
