10 Parent Reviews for Abita Springs Middle School

My child had a terrible experience at this school from 4-6 grade. There is some amazing staff members. Several staff members including the principal are very incompetent, unprofessional and should not be employed working with children in the education profession.

This is a wonderful school. The teachers and administrators do a wonderful job with the students. They are caring and loving yet prepare the kids for the junior high. Love the small school atmosphere and would recommend this school to anyone.
