My son is a student at L.W. Ruppel Academy. It is one of the greatest school environments I had ever experienced. We have a great home and school connection with the principal and teachers. I know what my child is learning in school. I feel like we our partners in my child's education. My son is anxious to go to school every morning. He is excelling in all his subjects. When he needs help, he gets it. My daughter graduated from Ruppel last year and is doing great in high school due to the great education she received at Ruppel. It is our other home. The implementation of current education theory and practice is impressive. I am thankful to be part of the Ruppel family.

Fantastic school. They have come a long way this year. 1.5 hours of Math class every day. 1.5 hours of English every day. Finally a progressive block schedule that works! We have been their two years and we have not had a bad teacher yet! Great to see the kids get pushed. Boys & GIrls sports were just launched and starting to get traction. Only need is more parent involvement in PTA!

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.
