    "When we first moved down to Louisiana from out of state i told my son that he would be going to one top schools in the state. after the first couple of of weeks he is begging us to send him back. the teachers at this school don't care if you learning they only care about themselves. this not with all the teachers but it is the majority. my son missed a week of school to finish moving are stuff down to are new house, so he missed many test and was giving no time to study for them. they said he should of been studying while he was gone, and one test he took they wont put a grade in for it to these day it says missing 0/100 which brought his A to a F. another things is that the school has 8 periods with no study hall. some days my son starts his homework at 4:00 pm and dose not get done until 1:00 in the morning. this schools leaves of its past glory so pleases do not send your kid here."

    "MY DAUGHTER JUST STARTED AS A FRESHMAN AT DUTCHTOWN HIGH, SHE HAS SOME 504 ACCOMMODATIONS DUE TO LEARNING DISABILITIES. I WAS EMAILED BY HER TEACHER THAT SHE WAS ONE OF THE HARDEST WORKING STUDENTS IN HER CLASS BUT FELT HER ACCOMMODATIONS NEEDED TO BE REVISED. I WAS WOWED AT THE OUTPOURING HEARTS FROM THE STAFF. THE PRINCIPLE, THE 504 ADMINISTRATOR, THE COUNSELOR AND ALL 4 CORE CLASS TEACHERS WERE WORKING TOGETHER AND DISCUSSING HER NEEDS, MY DAUGHTER WAS EVEN INVOLVED IN THE DISCUSSION!! SHE HAD TEACHERS WHO VOLUNTEERED TO TUTOR HER ONE ON ONE BEFORE AND AFTER SCHOOL, SOME VOLUNTEERED TO HELP IN OTHER SUBJECTS THAT WEREN'T THEIR AREA!! IF ANY ONE KNOWS THE STRUGGLES OF A STUDENT WHO STRIVES TO DO THEIR BEST BUT HAS LEARNING DISABILITIES ITS VERY IMPORTANT TO HAVE THEIR TEACHERS PROVIDING EXTRA HELP AND MAY I SAY I'M SO IMPRESSED AND SO WAS MY DAUGHTER!! A CHILD SHOULD NEVER BE LEFT BEHIND. AND DUTCHTOWN HIGH GOES BEYOND TO MAKE SURE THIS DOESN'T HAPPEN! MY DAUGHTER AND I ARE VERY PLEASED! NOT TO MENTION THE HIGHEST RATED NON PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOL IN THE STATE FOR 2013 AND CONTINUES TO BE A TOP RANKED SCHOOL."

    "My school is very controlling and very much so on a power trip. Teachers are all looking for every little thing that they can write you up for and they do a very good job of making me feel like all I need to do is just get a good ATC score and then after they get their money from the ACT scores, they are right back to writing people up."

    "I rate this school a ten. Great teachers, organized program, maintains discipline of student body, great athletic programs. Guidance for children is offered and very good. The children who come out of this school do well in college or tech programs. I love substituting at this school because the students are taught to respect and the staff will not allow misbehavior."

    "I am currently a Junior attending Dutchtown High School in Geismar, Louisiana. I have been fairly surprised at the quality of the school thus far, this being my second year in Louisiana and tenth school since Kindergarten. Louisiana tends to have a bad reputation for education overall and, for the most part, Dutchtown does not fit the stereotype. Lets start with the drawbacks of the school. First of all, it is not as competitive as many schools in higher-achieving states. There tends to be only a handful of students per class who maintain a 3.8-4.0 Unweighted GPA in mostly AP courses. There is no auditorium. The administration often suffers from poor communication and organization. Now for the goods. Because of the scarcity of education, students who strive to learn are given special attention, this includes a fantastic Gifted Program. The teachers, especially in the AP and honors programs, are truly interested in the subject matter. There are large and thriving music and musical theater programs. The head counselor, Joni Murphy, is magnificent. English and the Life Sciences are far above par and overall the school provides an extremely practical education."
