I must say I absolutely LOVE this school. My son is a bright, creative individual and he has excelled at Madison Prep this past year. He's engaged and enthusiastic where his curriculum is concerned (and is even a candidate for early graduation). I've seen him blossom socially and could not be more proud of the impact the faculty and staff has had on him. These people go above and beyond their duty in creating a safe and positive enviornment for the students while still managing to nuture the INDIVIDUAL child. Poor performance and bad behavior are NOT tolerated at this school (and you will be told so @ orientation). Granted, the school has a "culture" all it's own but that's by no means a negative thing. Each student at MPA has potential that's REALIZED AND DEVELOPED by the staff. And, that's the kind of place I want my child to be.

This is a great school if your child has no alternative. I will gladly recommend this school to a juvenile delinquent. That child will fit in.

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 End-Of-Course (EOC) tests to test grade high school students in English 2, English 3, biology 1, algebra 1 and geometry. The EOC is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Louisiana. The EOC is a high school graduation requirement. The goal is for all students to score at or above basic on the test.
