This year was our first at Acadian (5th). My child has a learning disability. The teachers & administration has worked with us a great deal. They were willing to do what was best for my son. Very pleased! This year we finished the year with average grades which is great considering it was always a nail-biter. The ELA teacher pushed him beyond his comfort level and he has started reading more. Hopefully all of our years at Acadian will be as productive.
Parents who help and stay involved in their schools show their children leadership, morals, and support. It's ashame our school doesn't have more involved parents. Parents who help the school show their children that they care. Also, they can really see how discipline is handeled and understand what teachers go through day to day. This school is overall great. The faculty and staff are always willing to help. We have a brand new lunchroom, gym, library, and also 2 classrooms. Find time to show your child that you care about their work and their morals. Children learn respect and manners first at home. Your child's disrespect towards teachers shows that they must also disrespect you at home.
I believe that Acadian Middle School is not exactly up to the Lafayette Parish standards. It has very poor quality in general. I also hear nothing but complaints from my daughter on the way she is treated. Kids who tease or bully others are not being disciplined enough.
