Audubon Charter is the school of my dreams. All four of my children attend and are thriving, even with some special needs and ESL issues.

My children are learning about different cultures as they grow in a diverse american city.

I love Audubon Charter School because the student body is diverse and the parent participation is very strong. Most of all, the academics in both the Montessori and the French Immersion Programs are excellent.

I Love Audubon Charter School because it has a wonderfull multi-cultural element that makes it special. The administration seems to really care about the students. My children love going to school at Audubon.

The French program is unlike the others in the nation - it is a public school!

My kids have attended Audubon Charter for 6years. It's been a joy having such wonderful teachers who make learning fun for our kids.

Audubon is a public charter school that embraces the Montessori principles and reflects the racial/cultural mix of our neighborhood.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted April 29, 2010

The teachers are very good, especially on the French side of the school. Unfortunately the administration is very poor and lacks leadership.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted February 1, 2010

The school calls one of its programs 'Montessori,' but does not follow the Montessori method or curriculum. Since its chartering, the school has steadily declined, as reflected in the loss of experienced faculty and the decline in the students' academic performance.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted November 18, 2009

I had extremely bad experience with the French part of the school. My son went to the preschool part and they kicked him out after two months. He has never had any issues before or since but suddenly there he was labeled as the problem child, the aggressive child. He is very sweet but he is a boy. They expected him to sit silently at his desk. He is 3 years old. That is impossible. I have heard that from several other parents of boys - they hated the French part, loved the Montessori part. They are extremely strict and absolutely unwilling to work with an age appropriate behavior.

The teachers are the most fun and caring I have ever met!

Audubon Charter offers a nurturing environment for my kindergarten son. He loves it and can't wait to go every day.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted October 1, 2009

I love Audubon because the children are bright, happy, and carefree while excelling academically and embracing the Arts. The teachers and staff are welcoming and sincerely care about the students' successes. The parents are all committed to giving all they can to ensuring the success of our great school. It is an honor to be part of the Audubon Community.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted October 1, 2009

Audubon is very inclusive. The teachers are certified and go through more training during the year.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted September 26, 2009

Audubon is a community not just a school. The atmosphere is a welcoming one. Students are treated as individuals by their teachers while learning how to become part of greater humankind. Watching children in the lower elementary classes learn concepts that are traditionally taught at the high school level with ease and understanding because of the use of manipulatives is awe inspiring. This is only on the Montessori side. There is also a fabulous French ecole where children are taught in French from pre-K through 8th grade. Wow, what a place.
—Submitted by a teacher


Posted September 25, 2009

Audubon Charter provides an environment which encourages teachers to teach to the whole child, cultivating confident, life-long learners. I was a teacher there from 2007-2009 and found it to be a profound experience. I love Audubon Charter School!

My daughter is so excited to learn French and she loves going to school everyday.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Louisiana used the integrated Louisiana Educational Assessment Program (iLEAP) to assess students in grades 3, 5, 6, and 7 in math, English language arts, science, and social studies. The iLEAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Louisiana.

In preparation for new assessments in 2014-15, Louisiana is including more common core aligned content in LEAP and iLEAP tests in 2012-13 and in 2013-14. The percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change.
