Overall this is a good school. The teaching is pretty much the luck of the draw. Sometimes you will get a really good teacher and then sometimes you will get a really bad teacher. I do not agree with all things that go on at this school but I like the fact that I do know a lot of the faculty really well.

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.
