I am a parent of two children at Solis and have been here since Katrina and Solis is still a GREAT school. My oldest daughter is in 5th grade and was accepted to the magnet school but she decided that she did not want to leave such a great school. She loves her teachers, administrators and friends here at Solis and was not ready to move away from them. She would love it if Solis still had 6th grade so she could remain there one more year! Neither of my children have every experienced any bullying at Solis.
I wish I could say this is a great school. It was once. There have been a lot of changes since Katrina. Now, its like all the rest. There are children there who are bullying and pushing others around, the teachers do not seem to know how to handle it. I may have to put my children in another school.
Paul J. Solis is the best elementary school on the Westbank! My daughter is moving onto the 4th grade this year and she has been on the honor roll since going to Solis. All of the teachers and especially the principal are above average. I have never seen a school that caters to the students as well as the parents to achieve such acedemic excellence. Other schools should follow in the wonderful footsteps of Paul J. Solis. Ms. Dufrene is the single best principal and teacher, she treats each and every student with dignity and respect, and the students respond with great achievement! The teachers are just wonderful, and the students are so well behaved.
All my three children were in Solis Elementary School. They were all happy. Ms. Dufrene is a heart-warm, dedicated principle who gives every single student a spotlight. We are glad to have met many (veteran) teachers there who love and enjoy teaching students. PTC is well organized as well. We appreciate all the time we spent at the school, and will never forget it.
I have had two children graduate from Solis and I am working on the 3rd who is in the 4th grade right now. The school is ever progressing and the Parent's group is outstanding. This is the greatest asset a school could ask for - parental involvement. What the parish does not provide the parent organization supplies for the school. No teacher or child is deprived of the necessary tools. Most people in the community including parents don't realize just how little is supplied by the parish. Props to all the parents at Paul J. Solis!
