I love the school because the teachers, principal, and staff put the children first. The curriculum is great. My child is new to the school but everyone made him feel as though he was a part of the school. The teachers are concern and does an excellent job to make sure that no child is left behind.

This school has a great pre-k program. The teachers are knowledgeable and work well with the children. The only drawback is that their is only one pre-k class. The classroom environment is wonderful and children are encouraged to explore and learn at their own pace.

I find that upper grade teachers are reluctant to use technology to communicate with parents or to help students enter the world of technology by posting homework assignments and links that would be helpful in completing assignments. The school web site is very limited - no class web sites have been established. The school needs to put more emphasis on this area.

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.
