Amount of homework: Disagree

Advanced courses have a fair amount of homework, but the regular courses need more at home work.

Initially, I was afraid to come to Bonnabel because Bonnabel had a poor reputation. My parents could not afford for me to go to a private school; so, I was forced to enroll in Bonnabel. Today I am proud to call myself a Bruin. Bonnabel can be called by many because the staff welcomes all identities. There is a plethora of clubs, organizations, and advanced courses. As a Senior looking back on my freshman year, I realized my fear originated from my belief in rumors instead of the facts. "Put good in, get good out." Unfortunately, individuals fail to realize that they create their experiences. My experiences was so great because I submerged myself in difficult classes and participated in various clubs. If you want your experience to be great don't be afraid to get out of your comfort zone. If a student actively associates with students prone to trouble, than what else could they expect but trouble. My advice to any incoming frehemen is to be the best student you can be because high school will past with the blink of an eye.


Teacher effectiveness: Agree

Overall the teachers at Bonnabel does a good job of educating it students. Some teachers do a better job than others, but that's expected.

Develops character: Agree

For the most part, Bonnabel staff, faculty, and administration remains honest and fair. A student with a great reputation might get a little more leeway than a student with a poor reputations as far as disciplinary action goes.

This school is a joke. If your kids are enrolled here just know the staff is not aware where they are at any time. They roam the streets and hang out in front of the apartments across from the school smoking pot and cigarettes all day. Several calls to the police and school and no one does anything. I would be disgusted to know my child could walk off campus at any time and no one knew. Even when a community tries to make the school aware the dean does nothing! Watch your kids here because they are not in good hands.

Bonnabel is a decent school. The education is acceptable and if your child seems more advanced than most others, they can easily switch to all honors classes. Switching classess is very easy and the couselors are quite generous. The teachers are experenced and good educators. There are deans patroling the school at all times so the area is secure. The school size is very big. There are plenty of students and plenty of space for them. It's almost like a mini college, thining about the size. There's a 50 minute lunch where you may wonder around outdoors and eat in- or outside. There's four periods, lunch being between second and third. The school is overall acceptable.

This school offers a great overall HS experience. I was impressed with the Freshman orientation. It was informative. There are plenty of clubs and sports teams available. There are programs that encourage your children to attend college. The Principal and staff truly care about the children. The school has great school pride. The test scores are fairing decent versus the district overall. Oh, and there is a clinic on-site!....and its free!

At first I never thought Bonnabel would be such a great school, but now being a Freshman I can say this school is probably one of the most spirited oriented High Schools in Jefferson Parish. I'm proud to be a Bruin!!
