Louise S. McGehee School Reviews

McGehee is amazing and the only place we could imagine sending our daughter in New Orleans. The girls who are at McGehee are extraordinary confident, smart, kind, and ready to tackle the world. In lower school the girls study everything from Shakespeare (at 7 my daughter could read elementary versions of Hamlet, As You Like It, Twelfth Night, Macbeth, etc.), engineering, Louisiana history, basic economics, French, dance, soccer, early algebra, and so much more. The teachers and administration at McGehee are the best we have ever seen. We are so delighted that we found McGehee and proud to be part of the McGehee family.

The most influential experience of my lifetime! The teachers, the staff, the friends, each person on campus is there to make sure that you succeed and that you are held to a high standard. Truly shaped me into hard working person I am today.
This school takes a young girl and produces an well-educated, poised, self-confident young woman who knows her mind and who will excel in college. Unlike other schools in New Orleans, McGehee specifically focuses on teaching 21st century learning skills such as communication, collaboration and creativity, rather than a large quantity of AP classes. In this way, I think the graduates are more prepared for life and education beyond high school and not just getting a leg up on the college classes they will take.
