I very blessed that my child is in Livingston Parish Schools. His current school is amazing and I didn't have to FIGHT for his rights. Any school that makes a parent fight for their childs rights is worth nothing to me. ty for giving your old zip that really means nothing. My advise to you is to pray your child never needs special assistance while at this school. ty for your opinion but I don't need it. Have a blessed day

My son has been in private school since Pre K. We enrolled him in North live Oak this year in 3rd grade. I have been super impressed. Everything they do extra for the students, the incentives and treats that make them want to try harder, and such caring teachers. I have no complaints. As far as children with special needs, my nephew is at the middle school and is deaf. At any school you have to fight for your child's rights. You have to know the laws as statutes. Once you are armed with the information you demand what your child is entitled to. You will have to do this at almost any school. Most don't know what every special needs child needs or is entitled to. It's the job of the parent sadly to find out and fight. Don't let a couple bad reviews turn you off from a school district. We moved here from a district where no school was rated over D. (2, or 3) on this scale. You want to see bad schools? Check out zip code 71423. You will then feel blessed your child is in livingston parish.

I have 3 children and a niece that go to NLOE and I love the school. I grew up in the Live Oak School system and the teachers are just as caring as they were 20 years ago when I was there. The most important thing to the teachers and staff truely is the students and that makes this a great school.

My son attended NLO the first year it opened and now my daughter is in kindergarten and I couldn't be more pleased. She went from not knowing how to read at all to reading four letter words in just two and a half months. All of the students are very polite when I visit (not just the kindergarten class) and very well behaved, that is something you do not see in Baton Rouge schools at all.

This school is wonderful. This is my son's second year at NLOE and I have been very pleased with his progress. The teachers don't tolerate any misbehavior and I have had no problems with anyone bullying my son. He has an adequate amount of homework and I really feel he is learning. I feel he is in a safe and healthy environment at NLOE.

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.
