Audubon is absolutely great!! The way the kids are taught is absolutely amazing. I have a daughter currently enrolled and a son who attended Audubon K-8th. My son is currently in high school and I must say he was definetly prepared and is excelling in all of his classes. My daughter absolutely loves school and lookd forward to attending everyday. Audubon is more like a close community. The teachers, staff and parents are all actively involved and supportive of our children and their needs. I am very please with Audubon and the way they continue to implement changes to build upon the already awesome education.
Audubon is absolutely wonderful. I have enjoyed the two years my daughter's has attended at Audubon and I am looking for the next year(s) to come. I also love the way the teachers teach and involve the children. I am glad that my daughter has the chance to be a part of Audubon. Go Audubon keep up the great work you do with our children of the future.
Audubon Charter School offers a wonderful, caring, challenging environment for its students.
Our son has been thriving at Audubon since moving there from a private Montessori school. He is confident and at ease, and loves learning again.
The diversity in the student body and the French Immersion program coexisting with the Montessori program.
I've gone to audubon all my life, and i think its a great school for kids!
After 5th Grade, Audubon isn't all of that. Expectations get low and the learning gets worst. I only consider you send your child to ACS for 4th grade. I have a 7th grade daughter and she is not being taught what will be on the ILEAP. High Schools will determine entrance on the 7th grade ILEAP scores. This school has alot of repairing to do on it's middle school program. I an not satisfied! My daughter will be going St. Mary's Dominican next year! I am not worried too much about the ILEAP, because my daughter works and learns at an advanced level. (She is in resource for advanced language and reading and the school says they have no time to give her advanced math :-() on a scale 1-10, i'll give ACS a 3.
I have been there for 9 years and i do not want to leave. Audubon is a wonderfull school.
While Audubon is great in it's Montessori and French offerings, fostering of student autonomy, embracing of the arts and fitness, etc, the school could be more parent friendly and fundraise more through parents and less through kids.
I have two children in the french immersion program. After Katrina and private schooling, we returned home to Audubon and I have been extremely pleased! I cannot say enough about the partnership between the administration, teachers and parents. My children are extremely happy and I feel as though I'm in a private school setting within the city.
Audubon is a really great school. My son's teacher really cares about her students and the school makes the parents feel welcome. The only negative I have about the school is that they don't really make it easy for younger siblings to enroll in the school at all.
Audubon is a wonderful school. I have a 5th and 2nd grader at Audubon. I am always amazed at how much they are growing academically, as well as socially. I highly recommend Audubon to parents seeking an elementary and/or middle school for their children. The principal is always exploring ways to make Audubon an even better school and I believe that the teachers are some of the best in New Orleans. Audubon is truly a jewel.
This is an awesome school! I have had children in the school for four years; this is our fifth. My children attend the French Immersion section of the school and they are learning to read, write and think in French. The school scored first in the parish on the LEAP test in reading and close to the top in the parish in Math. The principal is wonderful and knows each family personally. She is extremely approachable and has a wonderful, positive attitude that she shares with the students daily. The faculty is very stable and the afterschool program, Arts Reach, offers the opportunity for busy working parents to give their children the extracurriculars they might not otherwise be able to manage. Examples are dance, art, karate, chess and sports. I highly recommend this school!
Audubon is such a great school. Yet it is not the kind of school that provides support for students who are not on grade level. There are many claims of helps that will be provided and I have yet to see any of them executed. I am torn between allowing my child to repeat or finding another school. As known, there are not many high quality schools in New Orleans now. I am so sad that it had to be my child that had trouble this year. I love the school but I don't feel my child has gotten all that was needed in order to make sure that he did not get to this point.
My child is in third grade at Audubon and I wanted to write to address an earlier parent comment (June 2005) about kids with special needs. Since Katrina, I have found Audubon to be 100% responsive to my child's special needs--which was not the case necessarily before. I am very impressed by the progress the school has made in this area as well as in many others since becoming a charter school. This is a diverse, warm, academically excellent, thriving school which fills a very tall order in New Orleans, particularly these days.
The Best of the Best! Audubon is little jewel that sits by the river. We are one happy family. We now have the opportunity to expand to another building which will only continue to help us thrive. The principal is great, the children love the school and the teachers. Quality at it's best!
Audubon Charter should not be judged by its previous incarnation as Audubon Montessori/L'Ecole Franco-Americaine. The new principal has brought a renewed sense of purpose to students, teachers, and parents. Her pride and enthuiasm for the entire school community has brought wonderful changes to the school. Teachers seem happier and more excited about what they do, and this is communicated to kids and parents. With the principal's leadership, the teachers' renewed committment and enthusiasm, and the superb parent, PTO, and charter board support, great things lie ahead for this teriffic little school. It's been exciting to see the changes in the past few months since reopening after Katrina.
Our K-3 experience was great, but after a learning disability was discovered, trouble began. I contacted the principle MANY times but she never personally responded or met with me. The teachers would decide which type of help, if any, would be given to the child. If your child has a learning disability, expect no help from the principal or the teachers in the 4th grade. You must allow your child to fall behind TWo grades before they can help.
