Childrens Charter school teachers and the principal works hard to ensure that all students reach 100% mastery!
—Submitted by a parent


Posted September 24, 2008

This is my daughter's second year at the school. I have been very pleased with the instruction. The school continually has a long waiting list, so her admission was in itself a surprise to me. I am not sure why the post from 8/11/08 is not satisfied with the school. As the previous parent mentioned, the max in a class is 20 (with a teacher, and an aid). While test scores are important, they are not the only measure of success for a school. It has been my experience, although somewhat limited, that this school genuinely cares about its students, and the principal is always striving for success, both from staff and students. I highly recommend this school. Might I also point out that many of the students receive free or reduced lunch, which according to EBRPSS indicates the level of poverty. These students are thriving. Kudos to CCS.

My son has attended this school since he has gone to school and I thought that this school would help in many different ways, it appears that the school is really interested in the education of my child and his success. I already have had one child graduate from this school and he is doing very well in a regular school setting!

There is no 10/1 ratio. There is not 2 teachers in each class. There is a teacher and sometimes an aid in each class. This school at one time was very good, but seems to be declining, just take a look at our test scores and compare the ones from 2008 and 2007 to the test results of 2006 and 2005. I am glad this was my last year.

My children have been going here for 5 years and I love it. The teacher/student ratio is 10 to 1. There are 2 teachers in each classroom and with the max. of 20 students per class. Our school does have of all the violence, and problems that other schools in our district has. It's a small close knit school, the teachers there have been there for a long time and most faculty and staff love our children. I will not put my child in another school!!

Ms Lousteau is by far the greatest teacher I have ever seen. She was my son's Kindergarten teacher and I truly wish that he could stay in her class,however i know that he has to move on and I have full confidence that he will succeed with his new teacher.

My daughter have been in the children charter school since kindergarten the teacher were excellent she was reading a 4th grade level in 1st grade the teachers there are very commited to the kids learning and the school is a family oriented thing. parents are very involved with the school. my daughter is going to the 6 grade now and she left the school with a 3.8 average. this is her average from 3 to 5 grade. One thing I can say about the school is that if you ain't learning you will not go to the next grade. our theme is no child left behind just what it says thats what our teacher went by. if you decide to send your child a Children Charter that will be a big challenge for he or she.

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.
