Teachers don't respect the students so I could the students learn such a thing from them. There are 2 great teachers left out of the bunch. Turn over rate is ridiculous!

None what so ever! Children are treated like nuances if anything! Including the principal, she treats the children the same.

Lack of motivation and encouragement from teachers and principal. Children are not being taught. Parents have to teach the children the skills. In this, school I find we parents did more than reinforce the concepts that were supposed to be "taught" by the teachers. The PTO leaders including men are very rude to other parents.

This school is average in comparison to the other elementary advanced schools. The principal is ok. She comes across as very fake. I've never felt any sincerity from her. The Parent in charge of Pto seems to be overwhelmed yet refuses to take suggestions. She seems to be offended instead. The Pto is definitely like a click. The man over the crawdads club is so rude!!! The kids don't have books to bring home besides social studies and science which is crazy since the main focus of the school Math and Reading/English. Some teachers there are amazing while others seem to be there for a pay check and have their picks and chooses on who they like and don't like. Positive side is my daughter has for the most part had the amazing teachers. However the teacher turnover is horrible! They lose teachers like a kindergartner looses teeth! That speaks volumes of the administration! If Ms. Covey leaves that would be a disaster! She's the best 4th grade/math teacher there!

Marrero Academy is the best school on the westbank. I have a child that started the year it opened and just finished up 5th grade. We are so sad to be leaving his school. The teachers are GREAT - The prinicpal is AWESOME. I am very proud that my child got to attend this school. -- For any parent complaining - if you child causes trouble- your child will be disciplined. The teacher and prinicpal can't be nice all the time. -- The test scores are amazing and the school is always asking for parents to be involved. - Letters come home all the time asking for parents help. - Parents are always welcome at the school and the office staff is VERY friendly. Now if your child did cause a problem I'm sure the office staff isn't going to be overjoyed to see you. -- I would recommend this school to people that have children that want to learn. If your child just wants to slide by this is not the school for them. - In order to be successful in this school the child and parent have to be dedicated. Way to go Mudbugs... Mudbug forever!!!!

The school is ok. The environment is not a friendly place to learn. The principle should be the dean at someone's college instead of principal of an elementary school. She does not interact with the kids. The only time she does is if they are being brought to her office to be disciplined! I have personally watched a child approach her to ask her a question and she never once looked at him she kept her eyes glued to her cell phone. Because the principal has a warden like, unfriendly attitude I have found some of the teachers follow in her footsteps. The office is just as unfriendly the secretary makes you feel like you are trespassing if you go to the school for any reason!!! With positive leadership this school could be GREAT!!!!! For now it's just ok.

GREAT SCHOOL with great people as Teachers and Staff. Welcoming and friendly environment for students to learn. Parental involvement is encouraged and embraced. I wish the school was K-12.

The principal has a horrible attitude and leadership skills. The office is just as unfriendly as her. She is very rude and seems to like chaos. This school is good only because the students are on an advanced curriculum and are well behaved. The PTO is like a click of mean girls. I think more parents would be involved if they felt welcomed. I guess it's better than sending your child to a regular public school.
