Being both a graduate of the school, and having my other family members attend there now, the school has changed in only one way. It has grown to be not only a influence on the students, but on the family of the students, and the community in which they reside. I only hope that Glen Oaks will continue to be one of the biggest driving forces in public education for our children. Both the teachers and the staff believe in their students, and that what makes it different and better.

Having been associated with GOHS in the past, I feel that it's a great school, and an asset to the community. The faculty and staff are very concerned of the needs of its student body. There are competitive academic programs that are very pertinent to the world of work and the post secondary educational level. The school has a long rich heritage of success in athletics, the arts and extracurricular participation. The level of parental involvement has risen significaantly in the past few years which in my opinion contributes to the continued success of Glen Oaks High. I salute you on your continued achievements as a local EBR high school.

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.
