Best school! Best students! Best parents! Best teachers! What a combination! I'm so proud to have taught here so many years and my own two children attended here in their elementary years. Seventh Ward is truly the best!

Seventh Ward is truly the best school in Livingston Parish. The teachers are wonderful. Administration is awesome. Students are well behaved. Great parental involvement. Great test scores. Well prepared for junior high. Structured but nurturing. So glad to have my children at SWE.

My son is a type 1 diabetic so we started him in KN and I love it!!! they are so great with him and the learning techniques are so great and the perfect learning tools and great interaction with parents. I am always able to get in touch whether its via email or phone call. They have a good blend of races and there is no racism! They are involved with the community and care for the students a great deal! I love them! The nurse is the best!

As a teacher at another nearby school, I feel truly blessed to be able to send my children to Seventh Ward Elementary! As soon as you walk on campus, you are greeted with warmth. The teachers all go above and beyond. The students are all well-behaved and on task. I feel very luck to know about this school!

We are extremely pleased with Seventh Ward. Our child is entering the 2nd grade and is progressing wonderfully. The teachers here have a genuine want to teach. This discipline is firm but loving. I wouldn't want my child to attend any other school.

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.
