Cedarcrest is a great school and i love how the students can coperate with one another. they all listen and follow directions well. i highly recomend this school for children, and i would also like to say that it is a wonderful school for pre-k. some people forget about pre-k, but this school likes to include pre-k. even though pre-k doesn't have ancillary the teachers of pre-k allow their students to enjoy the time that they spend in class.

Both of my children have attended Cedarcrest-Southmoor from K-5. I have been extremely pleased with the education that my children have obtained at this school. The teachers at the school showed genuine concern about my children. I am impressed constantly by how well-behaved the students are at this school. I believe it is due the great leadership, the high academic standards and the clear discipline policies.

Excellent school. I have one son that attended from second grade thru fifth grade and another son currently in fifth grade that has been there since kindergarten. The teachers are exceptional. They are great about communicating with parents and caring about the children.

Excellent School. My son has attended third and fourth grade at Cedarcrest.When we first moved to Baton Rouge two years ago the school district was the main focus. We moved into the school district we are in because of rave reviews from other parents whose children attend Cedarcrest. I can say that I am in no way dissapointed.

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.
