This school offers challenging academic programs led by great teachers and office staff. I am happy we are in this district. My kids are excited to get started this year and can't wait to see who their teachers are. I have never had a bad experience here. I have friends with children in other schools in Denham Springs and from what I hear they don't compare. Thank you Lewis Vincent, my children are getting a quality education.

My son attended LVE and now my daughter. I am pleased with the level of education this school provides. The principal and staff do a great job at maintaining a professional but courteous environment for the children. There are always activities to keep my child interested in school and learning. I am happy to live in this district as I moved here specifically for this school.

Awesome school! Wonderful staff! Great at incorporating fun into education! Such a positive experience for my children. Mrs. Tammy the school secretary greets all parents and children with open arms. She loves the children! I admire her sincerity and love for her job! Always a joy to enter the school and be greeted with a smiling face! Ms. Robertson runs a tight ship! Very appreciated!!! Her level of expectations raises the bar for Lewis Vincent. Hats off to Ms. Robertson(:

I am shocked at how unfriendly the staff is at this school. My child transferred here from a great school and since day one we've had problems. Everytime we have some kind of issue, they act like it's so horrible that they have to take time out of their day to talk with us. I would not recommend that any child go here unless they have no other choice. We are moving as soon as our lease is up just so my child doesn't have to go here anymore.

I hate this school!!!! This year was my first child first school and its been a pain my in butt since the first day of school. I love his teacher but thats it. They don't resolve any problems. They tell what you want to hear but they don't follow through. If your child is suppose to ride the bus great that is when the bus actually shows up but make sure you have gas in your vehicle because I've had to bring my child to school so many times and its only December because the bus didn't show up and when I called the school they just say oh I don't I haven't heard anything you need to bring your child to school. It takes gas and time from things I have to do like work, bringing my other child to his preschool since they don't have preschool any school around.

My son likes this school and his teacher and i like his teacher but I don't like the way this school is ran. Not very parent friendly. They don't resolve problems they tell everything is good when its not and its aggravating.

My son is now in first grade but I was particularly impressed with his kindergarten teacher Mrs. Mitchell. This school has a very dedicated staff that work extra hours to ensure that the kids get the best education. The only negative comment is the amount of kids in th school and the condition of the facility itself. It needs to be renovated and expanded.

My daughter is in Kindergarten and loves it. She has a great teacher, the other teachers and staff know my daughter by name, and are very encouraging & supportive.

My son attended Shenandoah and he was unhappy on a daily basis. Since attending Lewis Vincent he loves school and his teacher Mrs. Parker. I couldn't be more pleased he has found a school that fits us and our family values.

My child has been at Lewis Vincent for 3 yrs. and we love it. They have been great to our child and to us. If your child has some areas of concern they will help. And I have greatly appreciated it. Thanks again Lewis Vincent for everything!!!

Most schools, at least public schools, have some discipline problems. This school is not for children. If you disagree with them you are laughed at and the children suffer. There are some great teachers there. The administration is the biggest problem.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted October 14, 2004

My children moved from a Private Catholic school in East Baton Rouge Parish. I find that this school is better than what I was paying 3500.00 per year per child for. Very interested in children and work well with stimulating particular interests in individual children... not 'group'. Have always been greeted with a smile and understanding in the office. I couldn't be more pleased with our decision to move to this district.

My children started at Lewis Vincent this year. I am not pleased at all with this school. I have seen the way they treat children. The principle and the secretary are the rudest people I have ever met. I will not be sending them back next year.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted July 15, 2004

Ms. Roberts runs a great school. She is clear in her instructions to the parents, the children seem happy and stimulated by the teachers, and the extra curricular activities are more than most schools in Livingston Parish or East Baton Rouge Parish participate in.

This school is not a school for kids with Disabilities. The teachers are not capable of teaching children with numerous problems. They dont care what happens with these children. The IEPS that these kids have arent followed and in many cases wont be followed. I know I have kids there. Of course to your face they are gonna tell you what you want them to. But when your not there the teachers and staff do exactly what they want. I am so glad that my kids are out of this school and doesnt have to be there next year. I was promised that if changes werent meet that my son would be allowed to go to another school. They lied! Now his grades has suffered due to this.

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.
