Audubon Montessori is the best school in the city.I have an 18 year old who went to Audubon from k thru 8th grade and did very well in high school and is doing great in college.I have a 12 year old attending Aududon now doing well.The school is like one big family,with parent volenteers loving the school so much as to give time to their childs school and to other children of New Orleans.I have been a parent and family member of the school for 14 years and can't say enough about this wonderful school.

First, you must understand that Audubon is 2 schools in 1. L'Ecole Franco-Americaine is not just another immersion program. It is a french school with french citizens teaching just as they would back home. I have had my children in the Montessori School for a total of 7 years. The Pre-K through 1st grades are marvelous Montessori learning environments. Grades 2-6 have not been as Montessori as we would like but more of the teachers are becoming Montessori certified so we have great hopes! I have no experience yet with grades 7 & 8 but right now there is just 1 class for each grade level. We need another building for the Middle School to grow. We have dance, drama, art, concert band, P.E., and lots of after school classes available. Our PTO is very active and raises lots of money, primarily to be sure our teachers have assistants. Love it!

I have an incoming Kindergartner at Audubon Montessori. We are very happy with her teacher and with the diversity and learning approaches Audubon Offers. It is exciting that the school shares space with L'ecole Franco American another spectacular program! Audubon has a great small school feel!

I have had a child at Audubon for two years now. She has had a wonderful nurturing experience from k through first grade. I do not know about the upper grades but elementary classes have been superb! The Audubon has very good parent participation and the teachers are just the best. The arts reach program has been a very successful and exciting one, with artists and instructors from all over city participating. I love Audubon Montessori. Also, speaking from a very aesthetic point of view, it is one of the most beautiful schools in the city. Audubon has a very diverse multicultural student body that truly reflects New Orleans residents.

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.
