Read in the local paper that St. Martin Parish School Board has decided to extend the boundaries of Catahoula's school district towards St. Martinville (LA96) until St. John Rd. area due to declining enrollment & currently the 2nd smallest school district within the parish. Well school board officials I say, "too little too late". You may want to research on why parents that were willing to assure that not only their children succeeded but the school did too are sending their kids elsewhere.

Catahoula Elementary School The principal of this school is more interested in uniforms than the success of this school. She refuses to protect the children being bullied. Having had 10 children attending this school from 1978 to 2013, I can attest to the decline of this school. I believe it is directly attributed to the principal's lack of proper leadership and the attention to safety and good values.

This is a school in decline. The principal refuses to meaningfully discipline students. Bullying, teasing, hitting, and disrespect of school personnel are major problems. The glory days of this school have passed.

We have a new principal and I think that this school will benefit from having her take charge. In the past I have been worried about a few of the teachers. I feel that this school has some teachers that lack the experience needed to teach our children. I'll be more specific in saying that it is only a couple of the teachers that lack compassion, experience, and just act like they are children themselves. They spread rumors on children to other children instead of talking to the parent. Which then makes it harder on the child to progress because of being teased by what the teacher has said. If we could get rid of the few bad seeds this would be the ultimate school. I do recommend this school although I dread to see my child get these teachers.
