Baker Middle School has a very devoted staff and is slowly making improvements to the school. It takes time to turn things around, and I saw some great things being put in motion this past school year. The main thing that this school needs is more community support and parent involvement. Too many times a school and its employees are scapegoated when things aren't going to well. It takes a collaboration between the school, parents, and community to get these students to reach and exceed their potential. The school looks great and the staff works hard to keep the building clean and safe for everyone. The school also has some very successful programs as well. We tend to always focus on the negatives, never seem to highlight the positive things that happen within our schools.

This is an HORRIBLE school! Children are constantly fighting and constant Bulling goes on there. When there's a problem, they put it off to "horseplaying" and nothing ever gets resolved. Even when you go above them to the school board still nothing gets resolved. Most of the teachers and office staff don't care about the students or their education.

I heard alot of bad things about this school prior to my child attending, and I am sad to say that all of it was true! I am extremely disappointed in the leaders of this school; namely the prinicipal who does not return the phone calls of parents. Conflict resolution is yet to be seen, and when he says we will investigate a matter-it remains unresolved! I was told that the teachers are concerned and care about the students, it should be said that a select few do.

This school has a lot of good christian instructors. Great Leadership qualities of the entire staff. Patience is truly a virtue when it comes to kids. Last but not least, the Administration staff headed by Principal Morris is incredible has open eyes for many students.

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.
