My 3 kids attended Clancy-Maggiore before Clancy merged with Maggiore. Before the merger the principal was totally clueless about what was going on in her own school. She was very rude to the fact she did not speak to the parents nor did she interact with the kids. The teachers were not hands on as far as teaching the kids. I can recall sitting in countless meetings in regards to my kids education. There was 1 great teacher out of many that took her job seriously and wasn't lazy. Since the merger the new principal and new teachers I can honestly say great school much different than before. It's more of a family environment!

We have tried it all-private, public, charter...what it comes down to is that my super creative genius level kid is just not happy sitting in a chair all day receiving information from a traditional lesson. Sound familiar? Then Clancy might be the change you are looking for. They use arts integration--using the arts to help teach all subjects. This is the same method used by Lusher. It involves projects, movement, children learning things by doing, etc. Unfortunately, this school has not gotten near the positive attention (or magnet enrollment) it needs to survive here. It seems that they have overall lower test scores, which have a lot to do with factors beyond their immediate control. Besides, the tests aren't as important as what happens to your child while they are there. Is it a meaningful, positive experience that helps them grow and learn? Or is it a place where they are expected to sit quietly, with little opportunity for creativity, interaction, or critical thinking? Even the best conventional public schools in this parish are guilty of just that. I say to heck with test scores. I don't want my child taught to a test anyways. Step outside the box, and give Clancy a chance.

The school was a disgrace. The teachers are nice but not equipted to teach these children. The school is unorganized and they don't have field trips as much as other schools do and the principal is clueless.

I am a parent of a 3rd grader. This was my child's first year at Clancy. I will not be sending my child there next year. I have never witnessed ever before in a school what I have seen this past school year. To sum it all up, what I saw was a principal who had no control over students or parents, teachers who wanted to kiss up to the principal, and office staff who could not run an office in the correct manner. Discipline was totally out of control at the school. Anything goes, basically. The office could not tell me anything helpful. Overall, my advice to any parent looking into Clancy, find another school for your child.

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.
