I have a son that was misdiagnosed at birth. Doctors said he was developmentlly delayed. It wasn't till he was about 4 when we found out he was profoundly deaf. After he received his cochlear implant, I inrolled him into Red River Elementary at age 4 with no language or speech what so ever. These wonderful Teachers were so loving and caring to my little boy. most importantly they were so experienced they were able to recognize that my little boy was very smart and simply needed language. With their professional option in writing it allowed my son into a privet school in San Francisco Ca. where we spent the next 3 years in a very intense Auditory oral program. In 2013 school year we returned home enrolling him back into Red River Elementary with still a lot of work ahead of us. Everyone has stepped up and has gone above and beyond to help my little boy. With the caring and loving additudes, professional experience and hardwork of Red River Elementary School, my little boy is in main stream 1st grade, reading writing and having conversations. just had an IEP on April 16th 2014 and the accommodations they provided were amazing. Thanks to Red River my son can speak and hear

I dont think its a good school at all. My children are having problems with the bus drivers who are very rude to them and they grab them by the arm and throw them in the seats. And the students takes my childs stuff. I will try to contact thier teachers and thier teachers will not contact me back. I will go up there and try to talk to the teachers and the pay me no attention. I am one out of many parents who arent happy with our child going to this school. That is why i am moving so they can go to a better school that actually cares and are the for the students and parents.

I have two children in this school and I have to say that everyone from the teachers to the ladies in the office are always friendly and helpful. My children also like going to school here and are doing well in their studies.

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.
