I enjoy knowing that my child is treated as if he were one of the teacher's children. They show respect, knowledge, kindness, and compassion. He has learned SO much and if there is ever a problem, everyone I have ever asked for help has given it. From the principal all the way down to the cafeteria workers and janitors. The entire faculty and staff at Central is awesome! You couldn't ask for a better place to send your child.

I was unaware of how poor the quality of education was at this school until I moved out of state. I was very surprised to find out that my child was 2 levels under the expected level for reading and writing. This is to the teachers and parents, take the time to make sure your students and children are where they need to be in academics.

This is an awesome school that encourages parents to be active in their child's education, and work as a team for the child's best intrest. My son loves his school and that means alot to me.

I just love this school I do have a child with a physical disability and the principal has only been the best help I could ask for and I love all the teachers. I even say this about the ones who my child does not have yet. This school in my opinion is by far the best in Webster Parish. The school board is not that great and this is where the principal really has put his neck on the line for me in getting an aid for my child in the class room. I love central and we just raised over 22,000.00 for St. Jude the most raised for a school in our area.

I heard a lot of good things about this school before we moved here. My kids have been in central for 2 months now and I have never had so many problems in a school before. The teachers are unhelpful, the principle laughed when i asked for my daughter to be put in a smaller, remedial class. I cannot seem to get help anywhere i turn at this school. I am at the crossroads of letting my daughter fail or homeschooling. Private school is not an option i can afford. After 2 months i am very frustrated & getting nowhere fast. I would not recommend this school if your child needs even the smallest amount of teacher help.

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.
