My child comes home depressed and cries everyday and every morning she is in 9th grade and hates her school and the kids there. They do not help the children, she struggles everyday with her grades and her test and all the teenage drama has gotten to her she literally hates it there. The kids bring ciggeretts to school lighters knives it's crazy. To many kids cutting themselves at school fighting and bullying going to deal with that school is not going to change anything.
This is the worst school either of our children have attended. The assistant principal covers up bullying, and is a former bus driver who allows the bus drivers to do whatever they want. The staff makes the kids walk around the halls with their arms crossed, terrible body language that ends up reflecting the student's attitudes. We were quite adamant that we were available to help in any way, and provided the teachers with several contact numbers and email options. Yet we rarely, if ever, heard from them even when there were academic issues we should have addressed long before report cards were issued. All in all, I would not recommend this school to anyone...especially in an open enrollment parish in which you can easily enroll your student in another school. Our student will not be attending this school next year.
i'am a former student of vms, i was on the first danceline and i'm proud of that, but the school was okay, my teachers were always there to assist me when i needed to. they do not call if you are failing your classes, however they do send out a sheet of your grades, so you can't complain, it just depends if your child shows you or not. its not there fault they don't call, its yours for not checking your childs grades. you can check your childs grades on the school website. i loved this school with all my heart, and i will definantly miss it <3
two of my 3 kids attended this school and I don't have much to complain about other than when grades are slipping sometimes you aren't notified in time..but the new system (parent center) helps ALOT. I can keep up with the grades. Mr. Wesley is the best asset to the school..He really cares about the students, and parent involvement. every school should have a principal like him.
