I go to fairview and it is an awesome school. We are very sheltered and protected in our very very small school. We dont have a lot of violence or drug problems. Everyone in every class grew up together and are willing to accept new additions to our classes. The food is not great. Lol but the staff are amazingly nice and accepting. They love every student as if they were their own child. Even the janitors lunch ladies and bus drivers always welcome you witha smile whenever you see them. Ive said all of this to say, you would be making a wonderful choice to enroll your child into our school

I'm proud that my children attended a small school with the same philosophies I believe in as a parent and as a Christian. The values as well as the education taught is great.

I think that we need better facilities at Fairview High School, such as classrooms, locker rooms, and gym. Our school was established in 1923 and needs to improve, especially technologically.

Hi My name is Wendy. I am currently a student at Fairview High School located in Grant Louisiana. I have been attending this school since second grade. Fairview has really grown on me. The Principles and Teachers are great, they know you by name and know all your family which tends to get annoying sometimes. And the students all get along great from Pre-School to Twelveth. You can walk down the halls and get many hellos and hugs. Over all, Fairview is a great place to grow up, and go to school.

Fairview is a small school in the country. The principal and vice-principal are wonderful people who truly care about each child. There is a lot of community involvement and most of the children thrive in this environment. The only draw back would be that when the children get into high school there is not as many electives for the students to choose from and this can be a hinderance to children who want to continue on to college. Overall Fairview is a wonderful school and have many excellent teachers.

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.
