The school is approved by the Louisiana Board of Elementary and Secondary Education. It is designed for students in first through eighth grade who struggle with dyslexia and related learning differences.

What has MAX done for me? From my time at MAX I have learned, experienced, and have done so much. I can’t describe nor put on paper the several ways MAX Charter has made me the person that I am but I’ll try my best. MAX has given me the tools I needed to get through school and into the real world. The support and help I got from these great teachers was immeasurable. By me coming to this school, it has taught me to be more dedicated and a harder worker.

My 6 years at Max has given me self-esteem, confidence, and knowledge. I’m in my 2nd semester of college and proud to say I have maintained a 3.8 GPA. I have no doubt that without MAX I would not be where I am today.
