My 2 children went to Meadowview and 2 of my grandchildren are there now. I have been blessed to watch Meadowview grow. Getting parents involved is their goal!

I love meadowview--My daughter went there(she's now 21) and I have another daughter there in the 4th grade and hopefully my granddaughter will be attending pre-k when school starts. The teachers and other staff really care about the children that attend there.

Dr. Barrett has improved teacher awareness for the education of students to the level of teachers desire to teach and parent ability to discipline children to increase their eagerness to learn.

Meadowview Elementary is one of the cleanest if not the cleanest school in the state of Louisiana. The Faculty/Staff welcome each child and person with a warm and caring attitude. The mission is to develop life long learners while encouaging integrity and respect! The Faculty/Staff are dedicated to improving student achievement. There are a variety of extra-curricular activities at Meadowview such as 4-H,jump rope team, 4-H cheerleaders, after school tutoring K-3,After School Academy, High Acheivers, StarBase, Boy Scouts, and Girl Scouts. It is a great family of learners at Meadowview and a wonderful place to attend school!!

Yes, the staff at Meadowview is very nice and welcoming! My child has been enrolled here for 4 years. I have heard a lot of good things about Meadowview, but I think that the niceness maybe covering up for the faults. My child was on the honor roll until this year. I noticed grades dropping and no-one else seemed to be worried, until I pushed for something to be done. Also, when I talk to other parents in other districts, I am amazed at the extra cirricular activities, that other children are exposed to that my child is not, here at Meadowview. I'm afriad that if I was not an attentive parent, my child might get left behind! Considering a move.

We moved hear with the military a year ago. I am not impressed at all. My child is in first grade and he is frankly bored with the work that is been given to him. He will not be attending this school next year. This school is way behind the rest of the country.

My child has received an excellent education from Meadowview. The teachers were concern about the child as well as being highly qualified to teach subject matter. This school enhances not only academic learning but strives to interact character education through out the curriculum. There are many programs to service the needs of all students. You can feel a warm welcome as you walk into the door with smiling faces of the children and staff. I would rate this school as #1 in my district.

This is school is one of the best in the city. The teachers and staff care about all the students. There are strong programs in all grade levels to enhance learning. The teachers and principal are always there to help. I am glad that my child goes to this school. I can be assured that my child 'will not be left behind.'

I don't think that the teachers have enough time for their students and that they have to many in one class.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted August 26, 2003

My daughter has been attending this school for the last two years and I haven't had problem one out of it. The principal is a wonderful person and is super nice to the kids and can be very stern if need be. The teachers are well qualified and we get letters of what the students are doing in their classes all the time. I would definetly rank this school as one of the few best in Louisiana.

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.
