My grandchildren has learned so much at this school. I was worried about the Montessori concepts but found it to be a great asset to their education. The Principal and staff cares about the students and makes parents and the community feel welcome.This school also have great programs that show the student's talent.Music,Arts and Spanish classes is a plus!

I am a new teacher and have been at Washington Montessori for two years so far. I chose to stay at the school despite some of the problems. The teachers are wroking with the students constantly. They discipline consistently in ways that work one time, but perhaps not the next. The communication home is probably one of the weaknesses, because there is so much that goes home that it becomes too much to follow. The school is getting better with parental involvement. The parents that show the interest in providing opportunities for their students really make a difference. Approaching a parent that isn't open to the child's poor choices is difficult because they won't support the consequences and show their student it is unacceptable. Otherwise, I love the school and plan to stay to see the wonderful changes that happen over the years.

I had a prek daughter who went to Washington elementary and I must say I was pleased with how well organized her teacher was and how caring she was. My daughter learned so much and everyday she looked forward to going to school. The plus for me was the way she came home telling me what she learned, what activities she did at school, and about her teachers. The negative side is when I went to the school I seen so may students wondering the halls and cursing. Lastly the buses ran poorly most of the time the bus did not show up and when you were to call and report it in the office they didn't know anything about it. .The office administrative communication to parents were very poor you asked the principal or even the secretary a question about the information they sent how they seem to know nothing

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.
