I do not reccomend this school. The principal does not handle disciplining situations well. Pre school and kindergarten is fine, though.

I have 2 kids in the school, 6 and 8 years old. They are in the school for 2 years. We come from Belgium, I also had my kids studying in a school in Brazil ( I have 4 kids) and I can tell with no doubt that this is school is the best that my kids ever attended. They arrived in USA speaking nothing of English. They were speaking perfectly after just some months after they began to attend this school. They never felt behind the other kids, never felt insecure. They love to read, to learn and go to school. They are self confident. Teacher are great, they are respectful with the kids, they understand their development, their differences, their time. This school totally met our expectations as parents on its emotionally ant intellectually work with our kids. We'll probably will have to come back to Belgium in some years and I feel sorry that my youngest one (2 years old now) will not be able to attend this school for a long time like the others. I love this school, and it was one of the best things we had here in Baton Rouge. Parents of other kids are great; open minded people.

La Printaniere is an exceptional school. My daughter has learned far beyond what I would have imagined for pre-K. More importantly, she loves to go to school. She is challenged, but not pressured. She is nurtured, but encouraged to be independent. I cannot say enough positive things about her teachers. Five stars have been earned!

LaPrintaniere is a absolutely wonderful school. My daughter was three when she decided she loved to read. By first grade she was reading at a 5th grade level. But the child only gets the true education if they stay for a large portion of their elementary years. She went to the best elementary school and is now going to the best middle school Uhigh. The parents are very involved with the children and the have art, music, PE, and once a week they go the library and always go on many field trips. They simply make learning fun!

La Printiniere Montessori School was a great foundation for us! Our daughter attended pre-K and we were delighted with the care and expertise shown throughout the school. Suzanne Bassett is a charming and capable administrator; I once was with Suzanne and party to the most gentle and successful conflict resolution between two squabbling toddlers that I had ever seen. Teachers were kind and well-qualified, or on track toward that qualification. We were very involved and thrilled to be able to offer cross-cultural activities, as were other parents in other areas. Lots of music and art activities, didn't care about sports. This is how affected we were by La Printiniere: my wife has since become an internationally (AMI) certified 0-3 and 3-6 Montessori instructor. Daughter is now 8, intellectually curious, voracious high-level reader, above-average math and science skills, fully bilingual, well-adjusted and happy. La Printiniere set us on a wonderful path!

This school is wonderful. My childen have attended this school since they were 3. One is now 7 and the other is 11. Academically, the sky is the limit. Each child is encouraged to go as far as their mind takes them. My oldest child reads on a 9th grade level. My seven year old reads on a 5th grade level. My youngest has mastered multiplication and the oldest is working on multiplying fractions and numbers with decimal points. They are encouraged to research areas that interest them. They LOVE to learn. All children do... this school fostered that love. This year my oldest daughter is learning to play the recorder. She is so excited about it. There are no art classes per se, or sports programs however each child is encouraged to pursue any area that holds their interest. Parents are invited to participate in everything.

My best friend's pediatrician recommended this school. I have a 3 year old. I tried to check into the program by dropping in. No one answered the door. I was able to walk to the back yard without any security measures being present and stood unnoticed for in excess of 5 minutes while the staff/parents??? sat conversing amongst themselves. I was shown to the front exit once I announced my presence. I asked for a phone number and contact person to speak with before being told it was in the phone book. I called back and left a message but was not ever called back. I called two more times. Finally, someone returned my call. The application and documentation made available to me was unprofessionally prepared and inadequate.

This is a good school for Pre-K and K, but I do not recommend sending your child there for elementary. They do NOT have a good reading program there and they promote children to the next grade even if they haven't learned to read and write properly. Children have graduated 5th grade (as high up as this school goes) from this school and then been tested at middle schools and had to REPEAT 5th grade elsewhere. There is not an art program for the elementary, no music, and NO SPORTS. Parents are generally involved, there are a lot of sign-up sheets for parents to do holiday parties and teach appreciation gifts. We found the principal/owner hard to deal with. Buyer beware.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
