About This School
Alternative schools are public schools that offer nontraditional education for students whose needs cannot be met in a regular, special education, or vocational school. While alternative schools are distinct from regular, special education, and vocational schools in their teaching approach or classroom environment, they can provide similar services and/or curriculum for students. Alternative schools include schools for potential dropouts, residential treatment centers for substance abuse, schools for chronic truants, and schools for students with behavioral problems. See Edward Hynes Charter School's test results to learn more about school performance.
In 2011, Edward Hynes Charter School had 12 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The Louisiana average is 14 students per full-time equivalent teacher.

Edward Hynes Charter School Reviews
Not a good school for kids with any special needs
The teacher to student ratio is not accurate at all. My grandson (who has a speech impediment and mild learning disability) is in a class with 27 other students. Because of these issues, he is a constant target for bullies. He is supposed to be getting federally imposed accommodations for his disability, but is not getting them. Also, with the full on implementation of Common Core standards at this school, kids (at least in my grandson's class) are starting to have problems keeping up with things in class. We, as a family, have decided to take him out of Hynes...not a good fit.
