    Although the office staff is pleasant which was not the case at other schools I've visited the teachers seem to lack enthusiasm- and just plain don't care. For the parent/teacher conference my child's teacher didn't even know my child had an F in one of her subjects! The bathroom stalls are COVERED in profanity and x-rated drawings. and the school treats the children like criminals from day 1- having them fold their arms and walk on a straight line through the hallway. And at the parent orientation instead of the staff saying "we're going to have a GREAT year and going to do GREAT things!" they said "your child will not speak while eating lunch or while walking down the hall. they will behave." (which they don't). My child constantly complains about being bullied and the teachers just say "ignore it". THEY SIMPLY DO NOT CARE ABOUT THE STUDENTS! I didn't expect much from this school but even those expectations were not met. From our perspective this school is a HUGE disappointment.

    My daughter has attended this school for two years now. Under the administration of Ms. Wallis this school has become an exceptional school. I just wish that more parents would get involved with their children's education. We have experienced many schools outside of Louisiana and I consider this school to be one of the best.

    My son attends Elysian and has consistantly complained about the student bullying and the lack of patience regarding the majority of teachers. He tells my wife and I that some teachers are actually afraid of some of the worst students. This is an example of the complete lack of disipline in our public school system.

    The teachers seem to not care and do not take any actions if their class is chaotic. Many assembles from the assistant principal has happened but I could never hear her voice. The band class seems to be the only thing great.

    Most of the teachers I worked with were excellent educators and worked hard even after hours to make the lessons interesting for the students only to have a handful of students who could not behave ruin the lesson for the class. Parent involvement is nil.
