St. Aug is an excellent school for the development of young men! Whether academics, sports, spiritual development and leadership, this school will motivate and prepare a young man for success.

I went to St. Augustine high school and this isn't the school it used to be. St. Augustine offers a low grade academic challenge. Being a seventh grader there i also experienced a lot of violence, thievery, and disruption in class. They offered me no academic challenge or a diversity in activities. Please don't send your child here.

I only have praise for the boys in your school even though I am not living in New Orleans. My husband and I were at the Orpheus Parade on Monday, March 7, 2011 and there were several girls 'taunting' the band members. Those boys just held their heads straight and NEVER comment or looked around. I am a grandmother with grandchildren and would expect nothing less than what I witnessed from this incident. May God continue to guide you and your staff for the teachings you are encouraging young men to become responsible adults.

Great teachers who are caring and dedicated. They are committed to the students overall well being. Prior to enrolling at St. Augustine High School my son had been enrolled in a suburban middle school. I saw a complete turnaround with my son's academic's, he became more engaged in his studies. He matured fast and grew spiritually (thanks sister and Ms. G). He is looking forward to attending college thanks to the guidance of his teachers. I commend the young men of St. Augustine, you are your brother's keepers.

I have three sons, two are graduates of St. Augustine, and the last one is an 8th grader. I have no regrets whatsoever about this school and our decision to send our boys there. My two older sons have opportunities opening up to them in college because of their educations at St. Augustine. There is a family-oriented atmosphere at this school that you do not find anywhere else. They care about our sons and want the best for them just as we do. There is no other place to send young African-American males to where there is discipline and that give them a sense of pride outside of the home and church except St. Augustine. Again I say we have NO REGRETS as parents and if we to do it all over again, we would still choose St. Augustine!!!!!!!!!!

All you are paying for at St. Augustine is the name, the education does not match the tution you pay. I can only speak for this year at St. Augustine and it is not worth the pay. Don't believe me ask your sons and see what they think.

St. Augustine High School has a wealth of knowledge. As a parent i sent my best but, St. Augustine High School made him better. Therefore, I 'm a proud parent of a 2009 graduate. There are no transfer too the past, just keys of excellence to the future. What's given at St. Augustine High School don't come from Fr. Raphael. It's rich in taradition and the vaule is above cost. True self pride that' called a (PURPLE KNIGHT). A man educated ,self assure and ready to meet life's challenge.

St. Augustine High School has some good qualities. There are some excellent teachers that really care for the students. The Principal I should be required to receive training on how to react to the concerns that a parent my have. I am on this website to transfer my son to another school. There are quite a few parents that have transferred their children. It is not the old St. Augustine with the new principal Fr. Raphael.

In this day and time, you can't be as good as, you have to be better than. St. Augustine H. S. provides a family atmosphere which is essential in creating a most uplifting learning environment; it helps build self esteem while continuing to focus on, and not sacrifice the main objective... i.e., teaching our children how to read, write, and develop test taking skills. I'm proud to boast that not only am I a St. Augustine H. S. parent, but also a St. Auguatine H. S. graduate. St Augustine has a proud tradition, aspire for greatness. Let's stay the course, discipline is the key in all aspects of learning and development.

I have a 9th grader at St. Augustine HS. This is his second year. I have already noticed my son estabishing the foundation he will need for life. St. Augustine has a new principal this year. He has partnered with local universitites and has promised to return the school to is religious foundation. The school is under going major renovations. They are adding a new technology center,classrooms and library. I know when I send my son to school he is safe and is receiving a quality educated. The school has an outstanding band and sports program as we all know but St Aug offers so much more. New programs being added this year are, golf team, and soccer team to name a few. Go Big Purple!

St. Augustine is a great foundation and building block for discipline and education. It has one of the best sports programs that promotes education first and a great band to match. St.Aug takes in boys and turns out men!
