I have been a student there and still am and let me tell u it’s terrible the way they chose punishments for kids is all one sided either one kid gets in trouble for something they didn’t do or the other kid gets in trouble if they tried to defend themself it is also the most SEXIST school they favor girls over boys way too much 100 and 50% the most sexist school you will ever find and the teaching method are terrible i had a teacher who would play on her phone or shop during large times during class periods and all she would do is make us do workbook pages or print stuff out from the internet . and not to mention u have zero privacy and cannot do anything as you know titkok is a big thing and the disciplinarian has a secret account and makes kids snitch on people if they post a timor’s with either there uniform on, if the sound has a bad word, or if they don’t like it . so all in all it’s the worst school and most sexist school you will ever go to 😁
This school is not the best. If your child can do for themselves it fine. If they need to be challenged because they are high achieving students, they won't be challenged. If they need help they will NEVER get it. If your child is slightly different and creative then they will be harrassed. Especially if you have a son. The parents are shallow superficial narcissists. If you don't fit in their country club atmosphere they are creating you will be ignored. There are some nice people there but too few these days. I sent my kids there and have regretted it. I feel I tortured my children. They were happy normal kids until that school. I won't go to that church again either. Find another school or move away from Baton Rouge to any other outer area. The schools are much better and the people too.
The academics are strong. It's a blue ribbon school, and compared to the public schools we learned a lot. Spanish, computer, music, and art were laughably terrible but everything else was good. More honors than just math would have been nice. Diversity is practically non-existent and not just in terms of race. Also, the food is awful. Everyone would have been willing to pay a bit more for food that was edible. No one ate. For social reasons I did not enjoy my time here. It was cliquey, and you either were in or you weren't. Even the parents are all friends with one another. Highschool students who did come from SAS admit that they fit a type- rich, cliquey, and somewhat superficial. It's the cotillion, national charity league, tennis club, Mardi gras crew type.
There is bullying. There are no advanced math or science programs. There are only accelerated programs, which means you will repeat material when entering high school. I was prepared for high school. Some teachers have bad teaching methods, such as not explaining the material before the test. The rules are too strict, loosely enforced in some instances and enforced to harshly in others, and the rules are uneffective in some cases. The English class is farther than some other schools but the foreign language is almost non-existent. There are a lack of clubs. The sports are excellent.
SAS is an amazing place to make lifelong friends and receive an education that prepares you for both high school and college.
there is some bullying, but that's inevitable
Great school! I enjoyed learning here
I enjoyed my years at St. Aloysius and I would certainly love for my children to one day attend a school even remotely as great as St. Aloysius.
