My daughter has been at this school for the second year. She is learning a lot. I am pleased with the curriculum that she will embark on this year. She likes the school a lot. I plan on her completeing elementary there. I would recommend this school to any parent looking for a school for their child.

White Hills Elementary is a horrible school, the teachers have no control over the students. They do not offer any extracurricular activities and they do not take the children fieldtrips.

White Hills was a nightmare for both me and my children. For all the students waiting to be picked up by their parents in the car pool line there is only 1 adult there to watch them. And all that person does is scream and hollar at the children. In the morning for breakfast in the cafeteria their is only 1 adult watching the children. My children attended there and didn't learn anything. When visiting the classroom I could see why because it was total chaos. The principal is very rude and unattentive to any of your concerns. My children were pulled from their and are now in a much better school. I would not recommend this school to any parent.

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.
