If you ever get the opportunity to visit other schools in the parish of Baton Rouge-like Westdale Heights Academic Magnet- TWO thumbs up..you will see why Broadmoor Elementary needs to be closed down. Student-teacher ratio at Broadmoor is horrific and my 4th grader (who is now at Westdale) seems to be slower than the rest of the other students because he basically lost a year when I enrolled him at Broadmoor. After experiencing Westdale Heights, I thank God every night before I fall asleep that my children where accepted in the magnet program and are now attending Westdale Heights Academic Magnet. The student-teacher ration is excellent, Principal wonderful, the staff is so helpful, informative, and care, and the parent involvement is extraordinary!! Whenever they call for parent volunteers, we have to get in early so we can help because there are so many parents that want to be involved. Westdale Rocks!!

I have a third grade honor roll student at this school. I have not had any problems with the shool at all. I recently went in and had a one on one with the principa where he gladly went over the plans for the upcoming school year. As far as parties or other programs I feel that they are going in the right direction. The children are rewarded with certificates and free meals and so on. Instead of parents complaining about what is not being done I think we should get together as parents and create a better learning environment for our children. The school does have an organization for parents(just ask). I would like to see continual parental involvement in the upcoming school year.

My daughter came from a school in another part of the state that wasn't great by standards, but she spent the entire second semester here ahead of the other students. After 6 years of perfect attendance and honor roll (2 B's in 5 years, All rest straight A's) there was no special recognition for her achievements like there was at her other school.

I feel that 40 forty students per class room is rediculous and I am outraged. How can one teacher control yet alone teach that many 10-11 year old children in that type of environment.

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.
