PARENT/ One of my children have graduated from this school and I have one to go. As with the entire world there has been changes made. At the school, but in my opinion the changes are to protect our children. The world isn't the same has it use to be.I have had a chance to spend time at this school and we are extremly lucky our children have such wonderful teachers. You have to remember there will always be a bad apple, but the over all bag of apples are sweet, and was hand picked.

i attended this school recently and it was fine but this year it has gotten ridiculous the discipline is way out of hand and the assistant principal's only goal is to make the kids cry....and she always asks the parent well did so and so cry or feel bad?? that is unneccisary

I've been at Lee Road since kindergarden and i have loved all the teachers i have had. The teachers will help you with anything you don't understand . My teacher I have this year is Mrs. Hurston and she is awesome!! She breaks down all the material so it is easier to understand.

Lacks good leadership (ie principal), fails to provide education to students w/ learning disabilities, and has too many students of various ages attending one school.

Unfortunately the quality of education being administered is in my opinion, no longer top priority. Some teachers are awaiting retirement, and should have been weeded out through strong review. Some are top notch. I believe more consideration is given to how much revenue the school can qualify for than upholding fair and unbiased discipline. Experiences with the principal have been disheartening. Parents need to strongly observe what goes on in this school. Leap tests? What a joke! I've seen this school deteriorate in the last two years. The principal is, in my opinion, a detriment to the success of this school.

I love this school! My 3 children attend and they are thriving, happy, and well educated. The teachers are quite compassionate and loving. My children hate the end of the school year because they do not want to leave their teachers. The new principal has done wonders too! If you are looking for a friendly, warm nurturing place to raise a family, Lee Road is it. It may be far off the beaten path, but every minute of commuting is well worth it!

Just wanted to say that I went to Lee Road for my school. I loved it. The best teachers were there. Like Mr. Woods, Mr. McCain and several more. They have the best way to teach our kids, and keep them wanting to learn more. Its a great down home school. Lee Road doesnt try to be nothing its not. You go there to get a great learning and you leave there with one. My two girls go there now and Im hoping that my grand kids will go to. I hope it never changes. I like it to be just what it is a country loving school,that everyone knows everyone. Keep it up Lee Road your doing wonderful.

I had 3 children go to Lee Rd Jr. High. We moved in this area 17 years ago and I wouldn't have had my children go anywhere else. Now my Granddaughter will be going there. The teachers are GREAT and very concerned about the students education. Parent involvement is a big part of all the activities at Lee Rd. The entire staff is very friendly and most live in this small community so are friends as well as educators. In my opinion Lee Rd. is the best Public School in St. Tammany Parish. I just hope it doesn t get to big to soon as it is growing every year.

This school is simply fantastic! I love the way it is maintained by the staff. It is always clean with highly polished floors. The teachers are a superb group whom are well trained and truly enjoy teaching youngsters. There is a strong sense of unity in the school, and the support and involvement from the parents is terrific! The principal is strongly self motivated and appears to be deeply committed to making Leer Rd an excellent school. My child is in her second year.

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.
