With the advent of the 2004/2005 school year, Metairie Grammar School became Metairie Grammar Academy for Advanced Studies. This is Jefferson Parish's first full-magnet elementary school. Like the majority of the other students, this is my fourth grade daughter's first year at Metairie Academy. Coming from a private school, I was not sure what to expect. I am impressed. My daughter's teachers were very welcoming during open house and have continued to seek parental involvement as the school year gets underway. Each month, students are assigned a homework rubric, complete with several exigent mini-projects. The September assignment required about 25 hours of work on her part outside of school. Ms. Brou teaches math/science/social studies. My daughter reports that she's tough but fair. My daughter is an avid reader, and is encouraged toward that end by Ms. Foy who has an extensive collection of books that she allows each student to check out.
