Gretna no. 2 Is the best school my son has attended thus far. He is a first grader and always admits that he loves his school. For your child to love his school, who could ask for anything more!

We love Gretna Academy. Our children are thriving. The project based learning is not fo reveyone and it requires self-motivation on the part of the students - but for our children it is a perfect fit! We love the faculty and staff, the challenging curriculum and the aprent involvemnet. It is truly a top notch school!

Gretna No. 2 opened its doors to my child last year for 1st grade and the goals are limitless. We are so excited about 2nd grade and all that it has in store for us. I can personally say that I attended and was involved in everything possible the school had to offer and I actually feel as though this school is where our public schools were when I was in school 25-30 years ago. The students are the heart of the school and the parents stand side by side with their children watching them attain every goal possible. This school is everything we dreamed of. And that's just the first year. We are so blessed for the principal and teachers who made this school a possibility. Go Gretna No. 2.

Gretna #2 is a fabulous school. My daughter traditionally loved school until we moved to LA, we put her in a charter school that was highly recommended and she started hating school and cried almost daily. The next school year we put her in Gretna#2 and she loves school again. We are so happy that it opened and it is a fabulous place to learn. The entire staff & faculty are wonderful, they care about the kids and making sure the make the most of their education. HURRAY for Gretna #2 GO GATORS!!!!!

My husband and I were very excited for our son to attend this school. Within days of him starting school, we realized this school wasn't meeting our expectations. The principal has her agenda and if your child doesn't fit the profile right away, she is ready to write your child off. They were not nurturing, made my child hate school, and made us feel as though our child was stupid. We pulled him out, and he is doing wonderful at his new school. The new school worked with us and worked with our child.

Gretna No. 2 Academy opened its doors in the fall of 2006. It has been a fabulous year for our students and parents. You're on the RIGHT TRACK! GO GATORS

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.
