I love this school. Everyone is friends with every one. And the teachers don't always act like teachers, they act like their your friends too. You can always go to them for advice. Our sports are awesome. Each sport has done something special. Basketball girls made it to Top 28 this past year, Our Cross Country Boys & Girls won state, Softball made it to the State Games in Sulphur, Track won Regionals,the Baseball team made it to State & basketball boys made it to the playoffs :)

As a teacher at this school I believe the education we are providing our students speaks for it's self. More Elizabeth graduates pursue a college education than any of the other surrounding schools. Our students can come to school with out fear of retaliations or fear for their safety in a completely violence free environment that is conducive to learning.

I am a gradate of EHS. I have lived here with my husband for 26 years. I taught at EHS for several years. I recently moved to a different parish to complete my teaching experience. I am saddened by the deteriation of the quality of education provided at EHS. Students' needs are not being met at the upper level. There is very little provided for graduating students. I moved my senior student to another school so that she could receive better instruction in advanced classes as well as take college classes during her senior year. I fought the system, following correct channels, yet I got no results. The end result is that both my children and myself left the parish. Both my husband and I are graduates of EHS, live here, but have no connection with the school system.

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.
