This school has excellent teachers, a strong administration, and students that love coming to school each day to learn.


Posted June 21, 2011

The new principal must have had an impact on the academic program. 4th grade LEAP scores were way up. 88% at basic or above in ELA. 96% at basic or above in Math. 5th grade iLEAP scores were up also. 90% at basic or above in ELA. 86% in Math. The biggest drop was in 3rd grade. I doubt that teacher will be teaching that grade anymore.

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.
