  • In my opinion; this is an excellent School. The Principal takes the time with every student. He knows all Parents by their first names. My eldest daughter started at Thomas in Pre-k,and now is in 7th at Pine. If she had her choice, she'd finish at Thomas. Mr. Knight keeps violence at practically none. I feel very comfortable and feel this is the safest school in Washington Parish. The School has wonderful teachers(with a few exceptions). You can count on the staff to help your child learn what is necessary.

  • I loved this school, and they made everybody switch schools, because they thought Thomas Jr. High was too messed up. I loved that school, and just because they built a new school doesnt have anything to do with it, because I hate Pine School. Thomas is way better, and I miss Mr. Steve. I loved my principal.
