My children and grandchildren all have attended Tioga High. They loved it and I have high regard for the teachers and the school in its self.


Posted December 17, 2010

I graduated from Tioga High in 2008 and have very fond memories from there. Graduation rates seem to be doing well. I have seen students I recognize from when I was there come to Louisiana Tech University and am so proud to know they now are able to attend one of the best universities in the state. The band was phenomenal and the educators there did their job well. I felt loved by most people there, even the principal who I didn't exactly see eye to eye with.

I am very pleased with the educational opportunties that my child is afforded at Tioga High School. She is receiving quality instruction in a safe and caring environment. She loves all the activities and the teachers are focused on her recceiving the best education possible.

I am a currently a senior at Tioga and I just wanted to say that it is a great school. Our school is currently under construction and is looking better and better every day. Our administation just hired 14 new teachers to replace the ones that no longer work for us. The atmosphere at our school is wonderful. I have enjoyed my 4 years there. And in response to the first post...Tioga is nothing like that anymore. Do send your kids to Tioga. It is a great school and is improving more and more every year.

I just want people to know Tioga is a wonderful, caring school. With the new principle, students interest are a concern. The atmosphere at the school is great. I have two girls there and I couldn't ask for a better school for them to attend.

Do not send your child to this school. They are out for the teachers not for the students. They push out the teachers that teach and keep the teacher whom the administration has control over. Do not move in the Tioga school district. They do not support parental involvement. The adminstration at Tioga have thier personnal agenda. The kids well being is not put first!

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 End-Of-Course (EOC) tests to test grade high school students in English 2, English 3, biology 1, algebra 1 and geometry. The EOC is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Louisiana. The EOC is a high school graduation requirement. The goal is for all students to score at or above basic on the test.
