I have always heard everyone talking about how bad the orleans parish school system was and they were partially correct. However, since hurricane katrina my daughter has been to several schools, in louisiana and out of louisiana, and none of then compared to lake forest. Mrs.Early and her team did a terrific job educating their students. I just had to let them know again how appreciated they are. My daughter has learned so much that she is bored in the classes she has now. 'I learned that already', is all i hear her say. So to the staff of lake forest, thank you.
This is one of the best schools in the city. The principal, Ms. Early, emphasizes discipline and order above all else. The disciplined environment enables students to focus on education. Lake Forest is in New Orleans East, a predominately middle-class, African-American area of New Orleans and the student body is probably 98% African-American. The class sizes are small and the school itself is fairly small. I recommend Lake Forest Montessori to anyone who wants an orderly, safe and quality education for their child.
My daughters attend Lake Forest Montessori, and I just have to say it is a wonderful school. They are fully focused on a child's education. The principal and the staff are phenominal. I could not have hoped for a better group of people to educate my children.
