Excellent school with ample opportunities for all students. Awesome programs for the gifted students in 2/3 and 4/5 multi grade classrooms. As a former home schooling parent, I was surprised at how homeschool-like the gifted classrooms are. Unfortunately nearly half the kids are free/reduced lunch, so the test scores overall are low, but if you track the free reduced group through 5th grade the performance gap decreases, so you can see indisputable evidence the staff is really working hard for all the students. I've found the teachers and administration to be very engaged and enthusiastic. Both my kids' teachers were very friendly and supportive any time my wife or I had any questions or concerns. I am really grateful we found this gem of a school on the southside of Lafayette.
In response to the parent whose comment about gifted/talented resources not starting until 4th grade.....that comment was from a few years ago. Now there are separate classrooms for GT down to the 2/3 grade level. They also have pull-out programs for students in the lower levels for some areas of giftedness. Great school!
