My school may not be the best, but it is a good school. People try to make Amite High School out of the worst school in the parish, but I strongly disagree with that. We do learn and our teachers and other administrators are working hard to install knowledge into our minds. Our school scores are also improving. Amite High School is not what people try to make it seem! If we could gain support from our community and others, I think it will improve even more. We need people who care! I love my school!

This school is a complete failure they are not doing what they are suppose to do there some teacher there that not doing there job when my cousin attendent this school they had the best teachers there now since I'm here I really hate this school so all parent that are looking for schools to put your child I do not think Amite high is the best school if I was you I would put my child in Jewel M. Sumner High School they will prepare your child for a bright future ahead of them.

I have attended Amite for the past 10 years and I love Amite!! Its an awesome school and a great place to learn! This year our school's ACT scores have grown tremendously as well as our LEAP scores! And I know of many students who made higher than a 20 on the ACT.I love the people who attend Amite and all of the extra curricular activies we have. We have really great teachers who truly care about their students. Go Warriors!!

Overall Amite is an ok school. I graduated from Amite High so I can personally say it could be much better. The teachers could teach more than what they do. How is it students make straight A's but can't even make a 20 on the ACT? Having attended all four years of high school at Amite High, if possibe I would not have not attended Amite High at all.

In my opinion Amite is one of the best schools in the parish.Some people seem to think because of the black/white issue its a bad school. I disagree.

I am a former student of Amite high. I now work in the Kent school district, Washinton state. I think with the resources available Amite high is a good school. More resources should be made available to make it a great school. More activities and programs for special needs students should be explored. Amite had and continues to have great teachers. The average pay is far to low for them and the sacrifices they make. I work as a district security officer in Washington and I make more than tenured teachers in La......Something is wrong with that.

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.
