Audubon is wonderfully diverse, yet inclusive, just like the great city of New Orleans.

My child is in sixth grade and has attended Audubon Montessori since kindergarten. He is excelling in his studies and tested well for the LEAP. I think Audubon is a great fit for him and the teachers have all been fantastic.

Audubon is a public; (free) Montessori school. It is one of the best elementary schools in New Orleans. The school went through many struggles after Katrina and continues to strive to be the best for the students.

Audubon Charter School is an amazing school in Orleans parish that rivals any other public or private school in the parish. Highly trained faculty, staff and administration permeate the culture of the school. There are 'specialty' teacher that provide movement classes, music classes, art classes, and gifted resources. It is two schools rolled into one. Half of the school is a French school and half is a Montessori school. There is no other place in Orleans parish that offers a free, quality Montessori education from a 3 year old pre-K program to 8th grade. The French school is not merely a few French immersion classes; the children (3 year old Pre-K through 8th grade) are taught by native-speaking French teachers that are outstanding. The Montessori students benefit from the French teachers by having French classes a few times a week in addition to hearing French spoken throughout half of the school. Parental involvement is respected, appreciated, and contributes to the success of the school.

A truly diverse, academically sound and challenging, friendly school. Caring, smart teachers who get to know their students in a small, intimate school. A fabulous after-school arts program staffed by professionals and skilled parents. A school that connects students to the New Orleans community.

The ideology and practice behind Audubon Charter School is in keeping with the change we voted for in electing President Obama. Our future is in the hands of the parents and educators willing to go the extra mile to insure the solid academic and cultural development of their children in a nurturing, egalitarian atmosphere. The Audubon curriculum includes immersion in a second language and teaching children responsibility and assisting their younger peers to develop a high self esteem. Having only one soccer ball for an entire school is not ideal but the children appreciate and learn many valuable lessons from this. Imagine the growth potential if they had one of several play or musical instruments. The teachers without question deserve more tools of the trade!!

My child has flourished in the Montessori program.

I love Audubon because it is filled with diversity and culture. It is truly a melting pot. It's a wonderful place for my kids to grow and learn. I am so glad that I chose Audubon and I wouldn't want my kids to be anywhere else.

My son is in the French program and he has learned so much thus far. He loves his school and has many friends from different ethnicities. Audubon Charter is one of New Orleans finest.
—Submitted by a parent

My daughter has attended Audubon since Kindergarten and she adores her school. It's small enough to make sure that each child's needs are being met, but large enough to have after-school clubs and athletics. Go Rarebirds!!!

Great teachers, great curriculum, great kids.


Posted September 18, 2009

The kids that attend this school are among the top when compared to La. students. They are well rounded and will one day be great leaders..

The Teachers at Audubon are amazing!

Posted September 18, 2009

Since, my two daughters have been at Audubon Charter School, I have been very pleased. I am very impressed by the parent involvement. Many parents are involved with cheering the students to excel. I have noticed that parents attend games, etc. even when their child is not participating. The teachers are encouraging to the students. I look at the teachers as additional parents rather than teachers. They teachers and other staff members take time to nurture each student. The students at Audubon Charter have a great future with the help of the teachers, staff and parents.

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.
