  • I cannot comment on the teaching staff beacause I didn't make it pass the disrespectul, inconsiderent principle. I don't understand how people with such poor communication skills can be awarded that position. I give that principle a 0 on a scale from 0 - 10. I wouldn't let my dog go to this school!

  • Rudolph Matas is the worst school I've ever dealt with. There is no communication whatsoever between the teachers and the parents. There is also lack of communication between the teachers and students. They lack structure, proper discipline procedures, manners, and fail to treat each student as an individual. If you have mediocre standards for your children, then Rudolph Matas will be perfectly suitable. These are my strongly held opinions of this school, but to be fair, I will add that I have had no other experiences with any other Louisiana schools as I moved here from another state.
