Marigny is a wonderful school! My child has had a wonderful year with an amazing teacher. The school is very warm and nurturing. All of the staff is helpful and welcoming. I could not have asked for a better school experience for my child.

Marigny is a wonderful school! It is a very welcoming and friendly school. My child has grown tremendously in this loving, supportive environment. Not only academically but socially. There are many opportunities for parents to become active in their child's education. From helping in the classroom to assisting at one of many events at the school. The strong foundation that Marigny has provided my child will stay with her for many years to come.

Marigny Elementary School is a fabulous school for children to grow and prosper. The teachers are very patient and understanding. It is a wonderful environment for children to grow and learn. The parent involvement is tremendous asset as well. Marigny has great activities to help grow social and emotional development.

My daughter has attended Marigny from Pre-k to 1st grade. I love the school and the faculty. The parent involvement is amazing. I love being able to talk to the teachers and principal so easily. My daughter has learned so much more than I thought she would. I cannot wait for my son to attend.

I couldn't be more pleased with my child's school experience at Marigny! The teachers, administration, and staff are all loving, nurturing, and truly care about my child's growth and development. There is a wonderful culture at this school where everyone feels welcome to volunteer and participate in school activities. The school and PTA put on fun family events throughout the year that really make the school the center of our community. There is a strong emphasis put on POSITIVE behavior education and support rather than "discipline." Teachers really work with each of the children to help them achieve academic success to the best of their abilities whether they are gifted, typical leaners, or need special education support. The teachers and administration have an open door policy. Whenever I've had a question or concern, I've been able to speak directly with someone to get a speedy answer or resolution. I really think Marigny is the best elementary school in the parish and the school's strength is the main reason that we have chosen to live in our current neighborhood.

Most of the teachers came from Magnolia Trace when the schools split with K and 1st moving to Marigny. The parent volunteers are great. I have been very pleased with the education, the environment, and the teachers at Marigny. It hasn't been perfect but what school is perfect. I am confident that my kids are getting a great foundation, and they have many activities that they might not have had: art and music, library, PE, KKids...

This has been a wonderful two years for my child. I'm sad to see it come to an end. The principal has a great sense of humor and compassion when it comes to dealing with students. I've been totally pleased with my child's teachers, the staff, and the administration at this young school. It has only been open for a short time, but everyone that my child has been in contact with will leave a huge imprint on my child's life. I'm blessed that my child had the opportunity to grow and learn in such a wonderful place. These memories will last a lifetime! THANK YOU to all of the faculty, staff, and administration for 2 STARRIFIC YEARS! ...from Grateful Parents

The worst school principal in St Tammany Parish. I think the only thing she enjoys about her job is a pay check.

Wow! This school seems great but we have had a TERRIBLE experience as to date. . .we are hoping next year is better. This school is only kindergarten and 1st grade and my child is currently in kindergarten. We have met with both my child's teacher and Ms. Martin the principal a few times. . .all the meetings ended with no solution to resolving our issues with the teacher. My child's teacher is just sitting pretty with retirement right around the corner and is just there for a paycheck. It is terrible. Thankfully there are other options around here. Be careful if you are new to the community.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
