I am very proud that my children attend this school. I wouldn't want them to be at any other Elementary. Our teachers do a wonderful job. Mrs. Mullican is a very good principal. She is always fair and makes good choices. She knows every childs name that attends this school and I think that is very important. The academic scores are excellent!!!

I am a parent as well as a paraproffesional at Grayson Elementary. This school is a wonderful place to work and there is no better school for my children to attend as far as I'm concerned. The level of guidance and educational instruction couldn't be better for the students that attend here. Our principal is one of the best you could ever ask for. She cares for each and every child at this school and she is awesome to her staff. I give a huge thanks to all of the staff at this school! Keep up the GOOD work!

I'm very proud to say that my child attends this wonderful school. If I had to drive 50 miles to get him here every day, I would. Thank you faculty and staff for the wonderful job you do!

Grayson Elementary is a wonderful school. The principal, Mrs. Mullican, is a wonderful person. She addresses every parent's concern. The school has some great teachers, too. They are hard working and all of them are concerned about the children.

2004-2005 school year, I had a kindergardener at Grayson. The new principal could use some help. At times she seems very concerned with what the parents want and at others she is not. She at times seems overwhelmed with her job and does not always make the best decisions. Maybe more experiance as a principal will make her better.

I am very disappointed in our Principal. Mrs. Parker is a very stern woman who should not be guiding elementary students. She takes the life out of them. School is a place to learn, but it is also a place you should enjoy to learn at.

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.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Louisiana used the Louisiana Educational Assessment Program for the 21st Century (LEAP 21) to assess students in grades 4 and 8 in math, English language arts, science and social studies. The LEAP 21 is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Louisiana. The goal is for all students to score at or above basic on the test.

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.
