Glenmora High is one of the most unorganized school. They don't know how to put you in the right classes and can not get you in the electives of your choice. It is too small of a school and need more teachers, so children can get a class of their choice. Some of the teacher need to explain more clearly, instead of giving your work and say a few words. This school really needs some help. There are hardly any academic programs for you. You might not agree, but you have to see it for yourself.

I am a graduate of Glenmora High School. I am also on the alumni board. I feel our students are well prepared to go out into the world. They are well rounded individuals and I believe this is because our teachers and staff still care about them and how they do in life. Gail Goldberg

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.
