Office personnel are very unprofessional and inept. They do not acknowledge parents or guardians that enter the school. People walk in and out of the building without signing in or checking students out during the day. It is impossible to contact anyone by phone and they do not return phone calls. The children there are not educated properly. The teachers lack the ability to prepare children for the next grade. The test scores are epically low! Do not send your child to this school. If you have other options please exhaust those prior to allowing your child to attend school here. You will regret allowing your child to attend this school!

Teacher fussing and admitting to it on first actual day of school to children in k and 1st grade. The k and 1st grade teacher would have gotten a negative if I could have given that

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.
