I have lived in Pollock for several years now and have had the pleasure of being put off so to say, and the teachers as well as the staff (including the school board) seem to be preoccupied with other things going on and over loking what needs to be addressed. Anyone can attend classes to make them look good on paper and in the mean time my child has been struggling for sometime now. People can be friendly enough doing a job and not get the job done. It also seems as though the teachers seem to be very aggravated with the open classroom policy, not liking to be looked in on with parents that are trying to stay involved. Support in the community is also terrible this school needs a fresh start and needs closer looking into if you ask me!

My children go to Pollock elementary and they love it. The teachers are always finding new ways to help the children understand information presented. Ever teach goes out of their way to ensure that no student is left behind.

I have 3 children and this fall will be 4 children that attends Pollock . I just want to say that I do love this school. They have went way beyond to help my oldest son that has a mild case of ADD. I have fell in love with all my childrens teachers , staff , principal , just nearly aboutanybody that works there. The school makes sure that with events that has happened to the past with other schools weather be here in Louisiana or other states that our children are safe when at school . I stand up and say Thank You . I know when I put my children on the bus every morning that they are safe. To anyone that is thinking of moving to our area that Pollock Elementary is a really great school .

My child has attended Pollock Elementary since the second grade.We moved from Alexandria. My son has had an excellent teacher each year.I know from experience and volunteering at the school, how dedicated each and every one of these teachers focus on their students. Seeing how they learn what is appropriate for their class and then some. I have to admit personally each one has gone above and beyond the call of duty with my son and I couldn't have asked for a finer school! Having the after school program is an even greater help for my child. I can not help him with his homework and they see to it that he has it done right. The nurse on staff is a relief for all illnesses and accidents. Pollock Elementary and all the staff has my Blessings and Prayers. Keep up the great work!

In regard to our community member from Colorado, I too am from Colorado, where my children were taught in mobile homes on the elementary school campus just like here in countryfied Louisiana. Better to improvise than overcrowd a classroom!

Here's the inside scoop....In respond to an earlier posting regarding Pollock Elementary's staff and curriculum, I feel there are a few things that need to be clarified. Our teachers are highly qualified and are continuously attending workshops, seminars, etc. to ensure that they are kept up to date on current teaching methods and strategies to ensure that every student excells. Our school also offers a FREE afterschool program that offers Tutoring, Music, Fine arts, Science lab and Computer technology. Our summer program offered a class for all ages in French. These programs are staffed by qualified teachers who by no means are 'countryfied'. We have no 'mobile home trailers' on our campus. We do have two well equipped portable buildings that house our School Based Health Clinic staffed by Cabrini Hospital and our school counselor. Yes, this is a rural area and money is scarce. But do you blame the children?

I would like to accurately portray Pollock Elementary. I have taught at this school for 5 years, and this is the school that I attended during my elementary years and the school in which my child attends. This school currently has several teachers enrolled in night classes to obtain their Master's Degree. No students are taught in portable buildings, these are health clinics. Pollock's performance score is the highest in the parish and last year PES showed the most growth in the state of La. This school has helped to produce numerous doctors, lawyers, superintendents, and educators. In reference to being 'countrified', I am curious of the previous reviewer's education considering there were numerous misspelled words. All of the teachers at PES are certified and highly qualified according to NCLB. My child scored in the 97% on all standardized tests and to date I have not hired a tutor. Maranda Granger

This is for the parent from cherry hills, colorado: a master's degree is not required to teach in any state. Foreign language, in my opinion, shouldn't be taught at an elementary level. Children are learning english, which happens to be 'our nations language'! the teachers are 'countryfied' to you? Well lady, you're living in the south. It's called an accent, or did they not teach you this in colorado? Most of these teachers received an education from lsu (that's louisiana state university, ). And by reading your review, it looks as if you maybe should have attended this 'countryfied' school, since you you wrote 'teachers seem to busy............Etc.' My pollock education taught me that 'to' used in this sentence should be spelled 'too'. That's one more 'o' than you used, in case you needed me to point that out to you.

Coming from Cherry Hills Village in Colorado, I am very dissapointed in this school and the school board. Very few teachers have Master's Degrees and no foreign language offered here. Teachers are pleasant but 'countryfied' as some people put it. They get offended if you ask them about their education background. Teachers seem to busy to talk to you about your children and make you feel like you have no right to question them. Be prepared to hire tutors for music, foreign language, arts and technology instruction. School itself is over 30 years old with visible deterioration. Children are taught in mobile home trailers in some cases. Very Poor community! ID's are not checked when you come into the school making it unsafe for your children. Caliber of school all the way around in my book would be a 1 out of a 10.
