I am a sub teacher and have subbed in eight different parishes since 1992 witha ph.D js a ucoin elem has the best dispcipkine and safe envoirnment any parent could ask for...The principal comes outside to lead the children in the pledge of alliegance and a moment of silence..The fauculty even the janitors are kind,caring, compassionate about the charges (children) entrusted to them by parents..I have not seen this much concern at john curtis or jesuit high school ! St mary parish s best kept secret is js aucoin..I am proud to be on their sub list.....Their students should be reclassified as angels....

J.S.Aucoin elementary is the lost jewel of St. Mary parish. The school has about 250 students, young, passionate teachers, and a family-type feeling amoungst personnel. Our school has a high vietnamese and hispanic population and we have been recognized nationally for our outstanding ESL program. We value the students and their success and cannot help but feel personally involved with their acheivement.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Louisiana used the integrated Louisiana Educational Assessment Program (iLEAP) to assess students in grades 3, 5, 6, and 7 in math, English language arts, science, and social studies. The iLEAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Louisiana.

In preparation for new assessments in 2014-15, Louisiana is including more common core aligned content in LEAP and iLEAP tests in 2012-13 and in 2013-14. The percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Louisiana used the Louisiana Educational Assessment Program for the 21st Century (LEAP 21) to assess students in grades 4 and 8 in math, English language arts, science and social studies. The LEAP 21 is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Louisiana. The goal is for all students to score at or above basic on the test.

In preparation for new assessments in 2014-15, Louisiana is including more common core aligned content in LEAP and iLEAP tests in 2012-13 and in 2013-14. The percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change.
