Bernard Terrace has finally been renovated! The teachers, the principal, the Gifted program, are all good, and now the setting is worthy of them. The main 2-story building, built in 1927, has had a major makeover, inside and out, including new windows and window frames, beautiful new quiet flooring, bright new ceilings with pleasant lighting, new entryway doors and glass walls around the office. It is light and airy and clean

My child is entering her fourth year at Bernard Terrace this fall, in the gifted program. We have been happy with the quality of education. One problem for us is the lack of communication and organization which I think could be addressed by the teachers. Also (and I realize that they are under-resourced) but the website it always out of date, which is really frustrating. The teachers and staff are exceptionally friendly, helpful, and supportive of the students. I have never witnessed any teacher yell at the children or speak them roughly, though I did witness that at my daughter's previous school.

Education low, test scores low, teacher low, and low grade school.

The school is a site for gifted as well as regular education students. I have been so pleased with the quality of gifted and its teachers, but are leaving due to the overall environment. The general population is very 'rough' and inner city, for the most part. The principal makes it clear that she does not support the gifted students or their parents. I do not feel that my child is safe on campus, and don't want my child exposed to the kinds of behaviors that routinely occur there. Regular ed teachers yell/ speak to all kids as though they are rough, 'street kids'. Gifted parents should really consider other options. If the gifted program were elsewhere, we would definately not be leaving the program!

We are impressed with the quality of education and teaching staff. The principal knows everyone by name, giving kids a sense of belonging. It is a great learning environment!

The principal and faculty are some of the most dedicated professionals I have ever encountered. They routinely go beyond the call of duty to help the children. We are very impressed with the high quality of instruction and sense of community the teachers and administration have created.

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.
