I agree with the last post. Cliques, unfriendly and horrible principal, lukewarm assistant principal. Teachers are good for the 1st half of the year, then I don't know what happens. They get stressed and the kids suffer for it. Clique parents and the principle are so unwelcoming that it makes you not want to participate in activities for the kids. It is a small school and that's the only thing I like. Just be aware, you and your kids might not ever fit in.

Like a previous comment made, everyone know everybody at this school. That's one of the many problems here. "Outsiders" are not welcome. If you didn't grow up here or are not related to anyone, you won't be accepted into the "cliques" that most of the parents and teachers have set up. If you are a working mother who can't attend every social function, you will be ostrcized and not welcome at any function. My children started this school 3 years ago and I still feel like the "new" family everyday that no one acknowledges nor wants around. Very unfriendly principal and disrespectful teachers.

I used to attend BVHS until hurricane Katrina forced us to leave. I have been to two other schools since then and I have to say that Boothville is the best. The discipline and quality of teaching is excellent. At Boothville it is like a family. Everyone knows everyone and for the most part everyone gets along. When I heard that the parish might not be reopening Boothville, I was sad. I rate this school 10 out of 10. I hope that this school reopens so that others can have the great experience of going here.

I didn't grow up in the area, I actually went to a HS with a graduating class of over 600... but I wouldn't want to have my kids go to a school like that. BVHS is great because the kids have a great raport with the teachers and vice versa. They respect each other... some anyway. I was sad to see one of the kindergarden teachers leave... Ms Luquette. Mrs Bianchini is another one of the great teachers and she is so helpful, attentive and willing to help the children. We do miss her as well... my kids transfered to another school in Feb.

Every school has its faults. Boothville-Venice High School certainly is not excellent! But overall I would rate Boothville-Venice High School as one of the highest. I think the teachers are very attentive and caring. The janitors and cafeteria crew are amazing, the kids love them. The school overall rates great on my list. There is a variety of extracurricular activities the students can get involved 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.
