This school will help you succeed. The teachers are great and can understand your troubles. Good Choice for a public school.


Posted May 16, 2011

This school needs a health inspection. Its not safe if you dont want your kids to be in the enviorment of 'learning new words' from older students. People are very rude and teatcher dont notice it, and the P.E. coach will not care if you are getting beaten up by an 8th grader three years older than you. Please clean this school today I saw the cockroaches under the table in the cafateria. THIS SCHOOL IS NOT HEALTHY!

I am a teacher at this school and I can honestly say, with proof, that this is one of the best schools in WBR parish. It consistently has school performance scores in the mid to high 90's and has been the top school in the parish in past years. Teachers and faculty here are top notch and are willing to do whatever necessary in order for children to succeed. I would send my children here above any other public or private school in the area. These teachers are 'pros' at working with students of all socio-economic status and leave NONE OF THEM BEHIND. Their biggest problem is parental involvement; however, some of that stems from the age group that is taught. Many middle school aged students don't want their parents at school.

I have enjoyed my sons experiences at that school after transferring him into the parish. I am not pleased with the parent, teacher, principal conferences with problems in the class, but I do know that you must keep in contact with the school for behavior purposes. Your child will be in clinic before the teacher contacts the parent for behavior problems.

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.
