Hico Elementary is a wonderful place for teaching and learning. I am a regular visitor at the school and I am impressed with the total learning atmosphere. The school is so clean and well kept. The faculty is outstanding and always friendly. I know the students are high achievers, especially in this school district. It is a great school and I am glad that my children have the opportunity to learn in such a wonderful place. Hico Elementary is on the cutting edge of new and innovative teaching tools and techniques. I encourage the faculty and staff to keep up the great work.

My three grandchildren all go to school at Hico. They love the staff and the atmosphere. The principal is new this year, but was vice principle last year. She is a very caring person, taking time to talk to all students individually. I have had hands on dealings with four different teachers. Each one is extremely knowledgeable and shows each child just how special they are to them. The fact that this is a small school adds endless possibilities to the depth of caring and sharing. All students are of similar background, which makes for a less competitive spirit. This is the best possible school and I am very proud to have my grandchildren as a part of it.

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.
