I used to go to school at Loranger Elem. and let me say it's way better than Loranger Middle school. But they're saying No child left behind is a lie because I know a ton of people that needed help and didn't get it.

I moved my family here after hurricane Katrina. The faculty, staff, and administration welcomed us with warm and inviting open arms. My child, who could not read has advanced greatly. Parents are always at the school working for the children. The teachers are great. The principal loves the kids a lot. My children love the lorangr schools. I love this country school too.
