My son recently graduated from this school. On graduation night after the ceremony the graduates were milling about and one of the top "honor" students was telling his peers how he wished his mom had not changed his grades so much. Apparently his mother works at Pine School and has access to change her sons grades. Another student implied that his mother had done the same, as she also works there, but he was glad because he said he may not have even passed, let alone with honors. Oh well. That is Pine for you. You have to play politics to get anywhere.

Pine is a great school. I enjoy attneding here. Unlike other shcools Pine puts education first then sports. I wouldn't want to attend any other school around here.. The teachers here are wonderful and i feel that they are the best.

Pine is a great school- the teachers show that they care about the overall well being of the students not just their grades. The kids are well behaved and respectful and for the most part get along with eachother. I could not imagine my child being in a different school environment.

Have been involved with many of the Washington Parish Schools, but find that Pine has a family base orientation. The teacher really cae and offer support to the students. They have the a great counselor who helps the students keep their cirrculum on track esp. those interested in TOPS. She is also there to give advise and offer options to students who need assisitance with courses.

Pine High has recently built an all new school which has proven to be the best in the parish. Great teachers and a motivating principal. Great extracurricular activites and coaches with great sports programs. Not as overloaded as Franklinton with a much better academic program.

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.
