Please tell me more. Be specific
Been out at LSU. Anyway, some coworkers have kids there. I do not. From one of them, I have been told the voucher kids are not held to the same behavior standards or academic. Some of them are fine but a few are thugs in training that should have been kicked out but nothing happens. The parents are hopeful the new principal will put the school in order, even if it becomes more Southern Baptist rather than the generic Christian.

Who was the principal at the school? Good luck finding somebody to take that job.

No private school can come close to competing with public schools academically for less than 11,000 a year.

They already hired a new principal. I briefly met the guy but I can't recall his name at the moment. I remember that he has a second job where he works at a book store that the president of the school board manages..The school board that just fired the old principal. I can tell you that a lot of families where not happy with the old principal being fired and were considering leaving the school over it. The new principal being friends with the president of the school board who fired the old principal, that was another bad move and it will hurt the school in the end.

I have three children at RCA, who have been there since preschool. In all the years we’ve been there, we have seen teachers come and go, we have seen a complete turnover in the administration, and we have had our share of concerns. We definitely saw the most changes this past school year, 2012-2013.

As a parent, my experience was that the previous principal was not very involved, rarely there, and did not respond to emails or phone calls. Because of the professional teaching staff and the office manager, we continued there because my children were all being well educated. I have seen nothing but positive changes since the principal’s removal. The new principal is a veteran in educational administration, professional, and easily accessible. I believe that the school’s troubles ended when a new administration was put into place.

Kudos for subjecting your kids and yourself to that lack of stability.

The school is open and better than ever! So many improvements have been made over this summer. The new administration and teachers are very qualified.
