    "I enrolled my child at Harahan Elementary for kindergarten (to save money). Within a week, the teacher told me that me child had ADD and he would be put detention if he did not go on medication. I was completely shocked as he had been in private school since PK2 and I have never had an issue. Since ADD is an Objective test (not Subjective), I took him to his pediatrician and he determined (along with recommendations of his PK teachers) that he has no behavioral issues. (Imagine putting a 5 yr old on amphetamines when he doesn't need it). I enrolled him in a local private school and he has had no problems (he is now in 5th grade). He still has nightmares about the "Red School" (color of uniform they wear)."

    "I agree with the parent comment on June 1. The only thing the school cares about is the leap & i leap scores. These kids study & practice the tests for months. IF THE TEACHERS ARE TEACHING, THE KIDS SHOULD NOT HAVE TO TAKE PRACTICE TESTS.The school is only concerned about their rating. SO SAD, SO VERY SAD."

    "I attended Harahan when I was a child and it was a great school. My kids are now going there and I am less than impressed. My son was tested for adhd and when I went to the asst primcipal and teacher they would not make any accomodatuons because he was not failing. They were more concerned about the ileap scores than his actual grades. The down time that these kids have is also ridiculous. They get yelled at for talking in the cafeteria after eating their 20 minute lunch and the before and aftercare program is like a jail. One of the aftercare personel grabbed my sons are and pulled his ear and now school is over and I still haven't heard back from the principal."

    "Harahan seems like a quality public school so far. My daughter is in Kindergarden and have had great teachers both this year and in PK4. Only issues at this time is that overall test scores seem to be dropping in some areas (GreatSchools ranking was 9 last year, now an 8), and that parents are unable to visit the classroom (new principal's rule?). Classes seem to be getting a little too full for my preference. A good percentage of the students seem to not live in the area, and their grandparents address might be used instead of their parents... but I suppose that is probably pretty common at any of the better public schools."
