    "I recently moved here from another state and fought to get my daughter in the great scholars program. We live in the neighborhood, and wanted to insure she got the best chance possible. After orientation today, I am not sure this is a good choice. Some of the administrators talk down to the kids, and the regulations regarding uniform border on institutional. The thing that got me the most is the thing that was said regarding the 2.25 gpa requirement. One administrator admitted it is Mediocrity, and also said that if they did not live up to the behavior standards they could go to those "other schools"... and they will see how truly bad it can be, and I guess yes for the transfer kids that's an option. In my mind threatening and talking down to kids while holding them to low standards does nothing to improve the deplorable situation MOST schools in EBR find themselves in. He is right about one thing, though.. Yep, they can go to other schools. So my advice is to find ONE for your kids.. This is not a place that empowers kids. It just squashes them down. Truly sad."

    "I just started at this school in November and I think while it's a good school they have too many regulations on what you wear. You can only wear shorts or pants and have to get special permission to wear skirts or dresses and also students can only wear the school sweatshirt or a sweater with no logo, no hood, and it has to be grey, white, purple, or black plus, they only allow sneakers while other schools allow students to wear boots and flats.They even put a ban on any shoes.I transfered from Westdale Middle School and there they put less regulations on their uniforms because the type of jacket you wear doesn't matter because it's a jacket and it's ridiculous at Woodlawn because sweaters and shoes are usually the only thing we can get creative with at school and we can't even do that there. So I think that the school should cut back on regulations on jackets, sweater, and shoes because students deserve to at least show a little style because that is the only way they can be able to show how they are on the inside through minimum ways like their shoes and hoodies or jackets or sweaters."

    "My daughter who is very quiet, 4.0 GPA, and never been in any trouble has been harassed and bullied constantly! It has gotten to the point that since school started, she has been involved in 2 fights!! Glasses broken and yet she still gets suspended for defending herself..my child is NO punching bag! So my child is punished for defending herself at school, and this goes in her permanent file! So something should be done as i was informed by the staff that these fights usually happens when the kids are changing classes; well IF you know this..then why dont teachers patrol the halls at this time...had a teacher been present when the girl hit my daughter in the head maybe it would stop! I have to explain to my daughter even though she did nothing wrong, she still has to be punished! Louisiana needs to open their eyes to all the violence that our kids are dealing with at school; and then they wonder why soo many kids bring weapons to school!! Its a call for HELP!!! I am sick & tired of having my daughter beat & bruised up..she goes to school to get an education..not to become an WWE fighter!!"

    "My interaction with the administration has always been less than pleasant. I found myself on several occasions having to remind the individual i was speaking with that i am an adult and not one of the students that attend the school. i can only imagine how they treat the kids if they dont even know how to communicate effectively with adults. I dont think a few training classes on communication would hurt this administration at all!"

    "I think this school does a good job and I am pretty surprised when the local neighborhoods pick the magnet school over this one. I've had children in the regular academic program and in the gifted and in the great scholar and with a few exceptions, they all had good teachers who did their best. I never had a dealing with the principal so I can't speak to that. The office staff is exceptionally rude. There is an amazing guidance counselor. I appreciate that they enforce the rules and dress codes. I think if you are going to make the rules, you should enforce them. Don't make any rules you aren't willing to enforce."
