Although the teachers are great as far as i am concerned it is the upper management that changes my perception about this school. Bully is a very big problem here and is very rarely properly handled! And with saying that i understand that it is the students that do the bullying but it is also the principals responsibility to take care of these situations as they arise and a simple warning is not proper punishment for children who continue to call names and make fun of others.

This is a great school! The teachers are caring and compassionate. They take the time to go the extra mile to make sure students succeed. Both of my children have attended school at Central and I am confident that they are receiving a quality education.

There are some good things about this school, but it seems that the school teaches to test for the Leap. Also, the principle seems haphazard and unfocused. The gifted classes are definitely of a higher quality.

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.
