The school is ok, but sometimes staff has a very paternalistic attitude towards families. The school is very testing focused, without a lot of time for developing other skills such as art or time for physical activity
LHA is the most engaging K-8th school in New orleans. In fact the network of Firstline schools are the basis of why this school excells adding on to the LHA leadership team. The teachers are the hardest working group I have ever had the chance to work with in my lifetime as an educator. We are significantly improving with new strategies and programs each year and is evident by our students scores and happy dispositions.
I love Langston Hughes Academy because the staff and scholars value academic excellence and character traits. It's not enough to exceed academically, you also have to work towards being a better person.
