Ecole Bilingue De La Nouvelle-Orleans
Teacher effectiveness: Somewhat effective

It is better this year than it has been in the past because of the new assistant principle. He should move up and replace the principle.

Amount of homework: Too much

Homework in elementary school has been proven to be damaging to children. It takes away from their interests, hobbies and family time. I have spoken to families at Lycee Francais who have no homework in K and tiny amounts of fun homework in 1st and 2nd grade that is not daily. That is one of the reasons why the Lycee kids test comparably to the students in the most successful non-immersion programs in the city. They tested comparably to Lusher (one of the best schools in the state) in English. It's because those students are taught a passion for learning instead of being bogged down with meaningless busy work at too young an age.

The curriculum for the youngest is very structured. They are not allowed enough free play to learn the basic social skills they need.

Yes, but respect for authority can be a bad thing when the authority is unprincipled.

There is no system for evaluating or assisting children with learning disabilities at Ecole Bilingue. Because these children remain undiagnosed, they are the targets of bullying.

Bullying and racism is not addressed on the playground. I believe the right school should mirror the values a family has at home.

We are leaving the school after several years of my child's confidence being eroded by unkind criticism. In the pre-school, their behavioral expectations are too rigid. Little kids wiggle and many have loud voices. They shouldn't be made to feel bad because of it or get red marks for their daily behavior due to normal age appropriate energy. In kindergarten, we are given daily homework which is ridiculous for any elementary school kid and especially poor practice for five year olds. It is a struggle every day and my child feels dumb for having a difficult time with it. The issue has been brought up time and time again and the adminsitration is dismissive and completely ignorant of the fact that there is no benefit to homework in elementary school. It has been proven incontrovertibly by numerous studies. This school is doing long term damage to its students. Kids belong playing outdoors and learning through free play that is guided by their own curiosity. Denying these facts not only produces emotional problems, it is also abundantly apparent in the test scores of the older burned out kids at EB.

Pure mediocrity. Could only possibly impress parents who've had scant education themselves and thus have low expectations. A great place for mid-range children whose parents prefer a sheltered environment above all else. There is no 'international travel' beyond the possibility of a trip abroad to France (never happened all the years we were there), which every French immersion school has, including the public schools.

There is a top down problem of integrity at this school that will not be solved until there is a complete turnover of board and administration. The business practices are beyond belief and will scare away anyone but the most naive and hapless.

Greatest school that I have been apart of! Great diversity, excellent teaching, fabulous leadership, growing sports teams, and a family like atmosphere. Been a part of this growing school for ten years...my children have thrived. They are far smarter than. My husband and I at their ages....they speak three languages, learning world and american history, math in two languages, arts, theater and music are a part of the day! International travel as a class. Outdoor science class. We feel blessed to be a part of the EBNOLA family for life! Incredible experience!
