This school hands out As like candy. Exams are all open book, open Internet. Teacher turn over rate is high, I had three different math teachers for the same math class. One left after another. One thing I noticed about the course work in general is that you don't need have read a single page of the material before the day of the exam to get an A on the exam. I of course do not rely on my classes/grades for college readiness, It would be silly to do. But what about the students that do? I'm supposedly enrolled in their advanced classes for 10th grade, but their exams are so simple, they remind me of my 7th grade course work at an old public school I used to attend. I was concurrently enrolled with a local public high school. Until this school can prepare students for college, its probably best to stick with a real high school.

The teachers are highly skilled and work hard to bring out the best in each child. The principal is kind and knows each child by name. He is a great example of a leader. Thank you KHS for bringing out the best in our Youth and giving them the encouragement and confidence they need to go out into the world!

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 End-Of-Course (EOC) tests to test grade high school students in English 2, English 3, biology 1, algebra 1 and geometry. The EOC is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Louisiana. The EOC is a high school graduation requirement. The goal is for all students to score at or above basic on the test.
