Lafourche Parish Public Schools Reviews

Growing up in Lafourche parish schools was decent. Our teachers were not that attentive to teaching, they expected us to “learn from our peers” as a group. From my experience there were teachers that were dedicated to teaching which I appreciated and some teachers didn’t care for what they were teaching and was straight learning from books. The school grades all got along but some people were bullied by differences and nothing was done about it. The food tasted pretty good. Our learning supplies was pretty good, good enough to learn with. Our schools are just as any other I would say.

The Lafourche Parish school are some of the most interesting school I have had the pleasure of attending. Their academic programs are excellent with many options for students to find their interest. The teachers are friendly and welcoming. If a student needs help, the teachers are eager to help them. The school system has an awesome response to the parents. Parents are able to get information need to help their child during their student career. A major problem that exists between the school and the teachers are that the teachers and administration often don't communicate very well with each other. The administration often give the teacher more work than they already have by making demands that often contridicts.
I really enjoyed our educational system, because we had college courses available, but I would really appreciate a closer look into what goes on in the classrooms. I feel as a student some of my teachers were wasting time talking to us rather than teaching us.
