Orleans Parish Public Schools Reviews
The teachers are great! They work hard for their students' education, but the educational system is so bad. A lot of students are taught early on that they don't have to work hard. They're babied in elementary school, so when they move into high school, it's difficult for them to adjust to a rigorous workload. Hardworking students will go far in this system.
I have been a student in Orleans Parish schools my whole life and they have helped shape me to be a great student and person. Every school tries to have open communication and even lets the students go to the board meetings. A change I would like to see would be a different generation of teachers, rather than the young teachers. Nothing wrong with them and I understand their longing to teach but as students progress in school, we need tougher teachers that will push and motivate us and I've noticed that a lot with more seasoned teachers.
I would like to see more prep for real life skills outside of academics because everyone will not continue to pursue academics. In addition, there should be more college prep resources available to every student and school.
