The handbook says Education is not fun, we are here to educate your child, not entertain them. Wanted to clarify the typo in my previous post

Audubon Traditional Elementary School has for the last six years been home to my 10 year old fifth grader. My son has not just learned the value of education but he has also learned to be a model citizen. As a graduate of Audubon and the traditional school program, I believe that this school is continuing to turn out the best and brightest students in Jefferson County and educates parents as well on how to be actively engaged in your child's education.

We LOVE this school. They are about working hard and being your best while also having fun. The teachers and staff are caring and really work hard to help each kid thrive. We live kind of far away but wouldn't trade schools for anything!

Audubon is an awesome school and Ms. French-Coles is an amazing principal! My expectations have been far exceeded.

JCPS needs to observe Audubon and make more schools like it available for more children. Siblings should be allowed to automatically enter to keep families TOGETHER . Having children in different schools does not work!!!!!!

I had some reservations about my son attending Audubon Traditional this fall. We put our name on waiting lists for private schools. Luckily, we still are waiting on a call from those schools b/c Audubon ROCKS! I couldn't be happier w/ my son's teacher, principal, & school. They make learning fun (even though they stress that fun isn't their goal) & my boy wants to go to school each day. It's very organized & parents are given plenty of opportunity to volunteer & participate in their child's school & education. The principal has so much energy & knows each child by name (or is trying her best to learn them). She makes a great effort to get to know our children before they are sent to her office, so she has a relationship w/ them outside of dealing w/ behavior problems. No wonder she is Principal of the year!

Audubon is a ok school some teachers are very strict others are nice. Must pick up topics very quick. And some teachers are really mean. I would not reacomend this school unless you are an above expectations student.

Excellent school. Committed, quality administrators. This is a traditional program that has been a very positive school for our 10 year old and 8 year old. As a parent, when I have had concerns, I feel they have been dealt with and addressed effectively. I would recommend this school to family and friends. ~ Tony Gore

This year I have three children enrolled at Audubon, Kindergarten, 3rd and 5th grades. I have been completely satisfied with the exceptional education they are receiving and feel that it has been well balanced program. My concern before enrollment several years ago was about meeting the needs of the individual child since it is a 'traditional' program. My children, having very different personalities, have all been very successful in this program. The staff seem to be proud and happy to be part Audubon and the parent involvement is overwhelmingly positive. We have made the very best choice in Louisville for the future of our children.

This is a great school! Mrs. French-Coles is an excellent principal. This is my sons third year at Audubon. I am very happy with the education that my child is getting. He has learned so much as a result of his great teachers.

The entire staff is dedicated and concerned for the children. And it does not get any better than Ms. French-Coles. My son is getting a great education.
