The Einstein Way
EACH CHILD IS DIFFERENT! Einstein uses data driven instruction to create a learning pathway for each individual student. Our students grow academically and personally because Einstein teachers monitor each one’s progress until mastery is achieved. We know that learning can only happen when schools focus on each child’s scholastic achievement in a nurturing environment that is safe, clean and respectful.
EACH CHILD POSSESSES A GIFT! Our philosophy starts with success begets success. Students must be praised on a regular basis for their efforts big and small. We honor this commitment on a daily basis so that our students are engaged through positivity. We also engage them according to their interest. As professional educators, it is our responsibility to identify the talents and gifts of our students and to leverage them as the basis for lessons. We expect every student to experience success daily and to participate in our many extracurricular activities in the arts, athletics and science.
PARENT PARTNERSHIP is an important component. We invite our parents to communicate with the school regularly. We also encourage parents to participate in our school community through our PTO, events like “Muffins for Moms” and “Donuts for Dads,” or by taking full advantage of our principal’s open door policy. Please know that parents are always welcome and that we look forward to working with you.
“Our mission is to significantly increase student achievement in a safe, clean, respectful and responsible school environment.”

Einstein’s cultural diversity is unparalleled in Louisiana. We provide an ESL program whose expertise has not been surpassed. Across all campuses we maintain an active translation and interpretation department so that all parents, regardless of their English ability, can be involved in their child’s education.

The Einstein Way means:
Outstanding exceptional-student services: we provide the best quality education for all students as an open-admissions public charter school. We offer extensive students with special needs.
Data-driven instruction: Teachers at Einstein differentiate instruction to meet students where they are and provide for the most individual growth possible.
Departmentalized and interdisciplinary: Students have teachers with specific subject expertise, while also realizing that everything they are learning is interconnected.
STEM-focused: Einstein students explore science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) to become the creators and innovators of the future. Einstein students have a 100% pass rate on the Algebra I end of course exam, and receive opportunities to tinker in robotics and computer science classes.
Personalized learning: Teachers leverage technology to create student-centric learning environments with adaptive online content and rich collaborative experiences.
Self-Directed Student Culture: Students at Einstein are our focus. We teach for them, and not for adults. Students are invited into a warm and welcoming culture of learning instead of a “no-excuses” disciplinary policy; we exclusively use PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention and Support)!
Engaged parents: Our parents are the bedrock of Einstein. We ask that parents make sure their children arrive on-time, ready to learn, everyday. We have an active PTO at each school and numerous events throughout the year. Click here for more information about getting involved.
