Chateau Estates is an amazing school for your child to attend. If you want your child to have a successful education, be around positive behavior, a positive administration, and a positive environment, Chateau is the school to attend. As a parent, the goal I wanted for my child was to get a good education and to be accepted for who he is. Chateau is our second home with a great staff. To all the faculty and administration, continue thriving for excellence, as you are doing a fabulous job. For the students at Chateau, keep up the good work, you are doing an awesome job! What great role models the kids are for Chateau Estates Elementary.

Chateau is a wonderful school that has raised student achievement. There are two posts by obviously a disgruntled parent. It is ashamed that someone would post those reviews. Look at the schools' progress. The post states the school was once a great school. Look at the data for the school prior to this administration. The school was failing to educate children from 2005-2010. The leadership at the school is excellent. They have made huge improvements. Parents are always welcome. Visit the school and you will see the wonderful things going on for children.

At one time, Chateau was a wonderful school. Unfortunately, this is no longer the case. So many wonderful teachers leave on a yearly basis due to issues with the school's leadership. There has been an extremely high teacher turnover that has taken place over the past few years. Of course, this is detrimental to student progress as it often happens during the school year. Also, the leadership seems to only be concerned with test scores. I know that schools are under pressure with regard to standardized scores, but this school takes this obsession to another level. If you want your child to receive a well rounded education, send them elsewhere.

PART 2 of 2: While there are worse school environments in the parish, Chateau's warmth comes from staff, not the leadership.Can't speak for next year b/c there will be so many new teachers,but quality of academics was good. It is just input from parents and students is not welcome. I never saw announcements when PTO meetings happened.I was never asked to be involved in planning the few PTO sponsored events that did occur. There doesn't seem to be community outreach at all. Except when they want us to sell something or donate. The last PTO VP left with her kids to go to the new charter school. Along with some other great kids and parents. I'm sure the parish funding is limited, but when I see teachers with pencil sharpeners that barely work and I'm asked to send in expo markers on my supply list, yet there are new banners being purchased about how great Chateau is...well I wonder. Sure the school scores have improved, but at what cost?

I attended this school for second and third grade. The teachers are excellent. I now have owned my own company and am currently working as executive management in NYC because of the wonderful teachers like my 3rd grade math teacher Ms. Hinton who taught me to love Mathematics. I always remember the staff and wonderful memories from attending Chateau Estates.

This school has done SO much for my child! He is Autistic and was lucky to be placed here! His teachers and aids have helped him so much that I feel like he's a different child. The school is also really good about teaching the other neurotypical children all about the special needs children creating a level of acceptance and inclusion. I don't feel like my son is alienated because of his condition, in fact I feel like the entire school (faculty, staff and student body) is supporting my son in his journey! This is an excellent school and I would recommend it to EVERYONE!

The teachers are great with the kids. I have been very happy since day one with the school and teachers. Mrs Gauthreaux a huge asset to the school. The teachers from pre-K to 5th care about the kids and loves to teach. I am sad with the new zoning that my baby girl will not be able to attend Chateau.

I think that Chateau Estates school is giving my children a great education. The teachers are very involved with teaching the children. The new principal is so great and involved. She even helped the cafateria staff serve The Thanksgiving Lunch the school put on for the children and parents. The PTO has and I'm sure will continue to do a wounderful job.

I love the school itself but the new principal and assistant principal are not as warm as I would have expected. The prinicipal in not as bad as her assistant but still in all very unpleasant.

The school is great. Everyone from office staff to teachers make you feel welcomed and that you matter as a parent. My children love the school and the teachers. My only problem has been last year and this year the PTO. They are very controling and unwelcoming. You have to be in the 'click' to have fun helping them out.

Overall the school is a good one though I have found that there is very little warmth shown by the teachers. I also believe some of the teachers of the lower grades needs help in class. A Kindergarten class has 24 students to 1 teacher and it seems as if the teachers are spread too thin with so many small children pulling her at once. As a parent of a student there I would like to see a little more positive influence from the teachers who are with my child 8 hours of the day.

This is a great school. You always feel welcomed when you walk though the doors. The new principal is great. She shows she cares about the students, parents, staff, teachers and the school. The teachers are great and help the kids and parents as well. The involvement of parents has gone up this year because of the principal. The school has many projects they are working on to make the school a better school. I rate this school a 100%.
