As a parent I was very hesitant to put my child into a school coming from daycare because I thought he would get lost in the midst. I was welcomed with all my anxiety, his teachers were Mrs. Pat and Mrs. Cue they were so warm and welcoming, It eased my mind. They addressed every concern or question I had, my son began to love school, imagine my surprise, he was given structure and goals that needed to be met. Our first year was wonderful, it was an experience for both of us. My only regret I have is that I couldn't add to the ratio of parents that were involved in the school. I have decided to commit to being involved more this school year and encourage others to do the same. Not just as a hobby but to assist in the growth o the school not just for my child but for all children. I have no complaints, we are looking forward to another year to be amazed.
worst school ever please do not allow your child to attend...this school is better off being closed down.... the teachers are horrible with communication .....this school prides itself on summer school they notify the parents little to none to tell them if there child is failing...the don't focus on education their big deal is fundraising .....seem like the teachers do not care if your child succeeds or not...whatever you do do not send your child or children to this school
Parents think long and hard before you even think about sending your child to Resurrection of Our Lord elementary school. They have not evolved into this century, especially where education strategies and childrens' learning styles are concerned. The kids still sit in rows and work from xerox handouts or simply turn to a page in a textbook and do part A and B. Students are not engaged with interesting activities that would promote academic achievement. This is not teaching. Many teachers are not making the material applicable and therefore more meaningful and concrete for students to understand why they are learning certain material. Some other teachers are not following a curriculum guide. There is often no direction as to what they are supposed to teach and at what time. Students would be better served in a good public school. This one is lacking on so many levels it is unbelievable. Communication is also very difficult here since they don't have a system to receive voice mails for some teachers nor emails for each teacher. Again, do your homework as a parent and look carefully before you choose this school. I wish that I had. I give Resurrection one star.
I am a current student here at Resurrection. I think that this school is very good because the teachers always help you understand what your problem is and try to solve it with you. Also because I am Graduating this year, the teacher stress about highschool, they push us to do the best we can to get into good schools, especially Mrs. Comeaux, our assistant principal and social studies teacher. She tries her best to help us get into the schools we want to by visiting the schools, asking about the requirements needed to be accepted, and also makes school baskets for our annual Spring Festival. Another reason why i like this school is because certain teachers make learning and understanding really fun and enjoyable, and there are always fun events such as Movie Night. When i graduate this year, i will miss everyone here.
I attended Catholic School all of my life, from Holy Ghost to St. Augustine High where much of my instuction came from highly dedicated Nuns or Priests. Today, in comparison, that same dedication rarely exists particularly since fewer nuns and priests actually teach, teachers salaries are low, and unlike in the charter system, teaching qualification requirements are minimal. My wife who is certified and has an M.Ed. teaches in the charter system. You're just not going to find many teachers with these credentials in the catholic system. The Archdiocese can't afford it. I applaud the leadership of Resurrections' principal. He has done a great job with the resources available to him. Though I agree with some comments I've read about the teachers, you can't fault the entire school for a couple of bad apples. Remember, before katrina, catholic schools were tops while public schools were flops. George Temple, MBA
As a student of Resurrection of Our Lord I would like to speak about my school. I have attended Resurrection the two years post-katrina and the comments that some parents and students have posted are very wrong about the school. Its a very good school they help every child . They always had a open ear if you had a problem . I would like to say that if i could go back i would they made my 8th grade year the best. I will miss all the teachers.
My son is a student at this school, and while I will admit that some changes are needed, I wonder how many of the parents posting here actively participate in the school. Besides the gossiping and complaining that I encounter in the parking lot, I do see many parents volunteering around the school. My son's teacher's constantly calls on me to help her because she can not get other parents to commit. Parents should remember that we are our children's leaders. The school can be what we make it. And, according to the remarks here and the lack of presence at the school, I guess you rate the school negatively because you want to pass blame instead of build up the school and our children.
This school is old school your child can be educated better in a public charter school. I am so glad this school year is finally over. All my son teacher did was complain he could never do anything right. Even though his grades were great. This school will definitely have your child with low self esteem.
I would not give this school one red star. My son has been attending Resurrection for 2 years now and I am looking forward to the end of the school. I would rather stay home and homeschool him before I would send him back to this school. HIs PreK teacher did not know much about teaching PreK and his Kindergarten teacher is still giving them PreK 3 homework. The quality of this school has definitely gone down and I would not recommend this school to noone.
Considering the damage that New Orleans East sustained after Katrina, Resurrection has made admirable strides to offer a safe, Christian environment for the student body in New Orleans East.
I was outraged at the type of school this has become. Many of the students were running around unsupervised; the teachers weren t in the classrooms. Some of these kids were terrible. Warning to parents, this is not the school is was before Katrina, it is all about making a dollar now, and they don t care who they accept, as long as they are getting that tuition money. My kids stayed all of one week. They were begging not to go back. Think twice before making that mistake. I informed the office about the concerns we had and they just stared at us, as if we were the ones with the problem. They looked at us as if we should not be concerned about our kid s safety and concerns. My son was afraid of some of the kids in his class. It is not worth it...there are better public schools in this city than this school.
The dedication of the staff is awesome! I made a great choice sending my kids here pre and post Katrina.
The overall quality of this school has gone down.I would not send a dog to this school. My daughter would ask her teacher questions he would answer her by stating 'it's in the book' no further explanation was given to her. some teachers did'nt even show up for the report card conferences. What does that say to me as a parent? bottom line I would not send my child to this school My daughters both went to this school prior to Katrina as well as after Katrina. The school lacks security. I voiced my concerns several times to the principal and was avoided like the plague. I as well as my daughters are looking forward to the end of the school year,when we can put Resurrection in our Rear view mirror.
My daughter attended Resurrection prior to Hurricane Katrina. She was blessed with two great teachers. Her foundation at this school has led to outstanding success at her present school. I was very pleased with this school. I appreciated the 'no bargaining', 'we demand the best' attitude amongst the seasoned, professional staff. My daughter will return, if, and when we return to New Orleans.
I am a former teacher of R.O.O.L. Since I was displaced by Hurricane Katrina and blessed to secure a teaching position at another school one month after the windstorm, I can objectively say that Resurrection is a good school. Although the staff has changed and the school is in need of repairs post-Katrina, its strongest assets continues to be its priest, its principal, and its teachers. One of the middle school teachers, Mrs. Comeaux, returned to Resurrection despite the ability to work closer to her home. She is one of the many dedicated teachers at the school. While I was employed at Resurrection, there were some complaints about the demanding curriculum in middle school, but an impressive number of students return to the school to report that they were placed in high school honors classes and / or feel adequately prepared for their first year of high school. R.O.O.L. values students.
My daughters have attened this school for 3 years.I felt they were taught a year ahead. My daughters experience with the teaches,staff and the principle of the school was excellent. I look forward to this school opening back up for the 06-07 school year!
Do not send your child to this school the teachers do not care about your childs future not all but most.
Stay clear of this school. The teachers are impatient and tired. This school charges too much for too little.
If you are looking for a good school steer clear of this one. The educational levels are a grade behind, and the staff are all old and tired people. This school needs more young and better educated people.
