Principal Julie Lause expressed how this visit was a special recognition for Tubman and their K-1-2 Montessori program.“The way we think about building a strong foundation for learning is something Superintendent White and his team wanted to see first hand,” she said. “I am very proud of the work we have done internally to get to the point where others want to learn from us.”

“This school is an innovative school that is doing things creatively for its families and for its children,” he said. “It’s also a great example of how the school came in, took over in a situation that was troubled, and has really turned it around. This is a school that is on the rise, and that’s great news for education in New Orleans.”
