  • my children have been going there since kindergarten and it is, BY FAR, THE best school in all the nearby parishes, including private schools. they do concentrate on leaps scores a little much, but all the kids there are respectful and ready to learn. The teachers are so great too and truly care for their students!

  • I heard that the school is over rated. All they concentrate on is leap test. I also heard that a lot goes on at the school and they hide it from the public. It is still a public school with problems. If it was so great, why would our parish leaders educate their children privately. The leap test need to be done away with, the kids are just getting by anyway. What makes the school so magnet? I don't think so!
