Greenlawn Terrace Elementary School is among the top traditional elementary schools in Louisiana's Jefferson Parish, despite the fact that 83% of its student population qualifies for free or reduced-price meals. One parent credits the teachers for the school's success. "They are amazing. They are enthusiastic, like I have never seen before. They really want the students to do well," she said. The school's principal said students succeed because educators set high academic and behavioral standards.
