The only reason I give any stars is be a useful of my son's pre-k teacher last year. She truly is a gem. The school may be a good one to others but for me, personally, it is nothing short of a disappointment if my children do not learn anything from their teachers. This year was my oldest sons third year there. I can say he has learned nothing that will contribute to his future. I believe my second son lucked out with his pre-k teacher last year. This year, his kindergarten teacher had it easy with him because he was taught everything last year. In fact, he was pretty much the teacher's aid working for free. Each day he would tell me the errands he had to run and the kids he had to walk to the office. This is the case for my oldest, as well. He has been the teacher's aide, for free. Maybe next year, they will get lucky and score a great teacher but I am am no taking my chances any longer. Let us not even begin to talk about the principal. How did she even become one?

Clean school with good teachers. They care about the students. Very nice play area. Parents are moderately involved. There was more involvement before bussing began. The school generally performs well in it's testing. Reading, writing and math are encouraged. I went back to this school recently to evaluate it for my nursing program. Many of the teachers were still there. They remembered me, which I found very thoughtful. They provide a definate caring environment for the kids as well as a strong academic program.

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.
