My child was transferred to this school as a result of another school closing in the district. This was the worst experience I as a parent has had. The school has failed to provide an enviornment conducive to learning and I feel guilty as a parent having subjected him to this environment. My son had the pleasure of having three teachers this school year. He had the pleasure of having two principals. Parents were not made to feel welcome at the school. I don't think that a PTA was in place although we were told there was. NO one reached out to me, no letters concerning meetings or anything. I've spoken to other parents whose children were moved to this school and the sentiments are the same. Other parents have opted to have their children placed in private school, which is what my husband and I are considering.

I have had wonderful experiences at Delmont and with the principal and the other staff. She and her staff have exhibited a very postive attitude toward me and other parents. This schools that truly show that they are interested in the education and social well being of the children that attend. This is my third child to go through Delmont and I a very pleased. This school IS NOT an academically unacceptable school and has improved over the passed seven or eight years. I volunteer at the school on a regular based and have been made to feel welcome and valued.

The school is behind academically. Parents are not that involved and the ones that are have not been treated as well as they should be especially by the principal but this is all in my opinion based upon my encounter with her and this will take away the parents wanting to get more involved with the school and what's going on by trying to avoid confrontation with someone with a possible nonchalant attitude and the ones that could just look for other schools to place their children so its best that all adults respect each other whether they are in agreement are not for we set the example be it education are so forth.

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.
