I love this school. It doesn't have much money the teacher are under paid. However they show up everyday with materials they bought out of their own money. They try to teach with what they have. They are very dedicated to the children and their eduction.

CES has great potential, however one area of much needed improvement is class size. Our first graders class has 23 students, and our fourth graders class has 24 students. 15 students per teacher is about the average for CES, but the average reflects non traditional / special education classes with very low teacher to pupil ratios. Setting a goal of no more than 15 students per teacher in all traditional classes should be made a high priority for this school.

I feel that Clinton Elementary school is a great community school. Like the previous review it has great potential. Most of the teachers are very good and do care about the students. The school's performance score has risen for the last three years and continues to climb. The principal is a person who obviously care about all children and people. I know that if the community came together and supported the public school in this parish the system would be as good if not better that any neighboring system including West Feliciana. Children need to be brought up and taught how to live with all people. This is reality. When we leave our homes and our churches and for some of us our schools, we need to know how to get along with everyone. If we see problems it is up to us to get involved and fix them.

This school has major potential. If more parents got involved in their child's education, this would help. I do see that African American's are in majority attendance. I am not racist, I do feel that this is a shame though. That parents would rather send their children to private schools than to allow them to function normally together and learn.

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.
