C.T. Janet Elementary
Janet Elementary opened in 1988 and accommodates children in kindergarten
to fifth grade. Janet is a red brick school house located near the
swamps of Lafitte, in Marrero, Louisiana. All teachers hold a minimum
of a bachelor's degree and many hold advanced degrees. The teachers
are complimented by 19 teacher assistants, and an excellent clerical staff.
The student teacher ratio is 25:1 in the lower elementary grades and 30:1
in the upper elementary grades. The school environment includes self
contained classrooms in grades kindergarten through third with computers
in each room. Our fourth and fifth grades enjoy the flexibility of
being semi-departmentalized while enjoying extra curriculum activities
of the 4H club, Student Council, and Chorus. Our motto "Where every
child learns" best describes our mission in education.
