This year was our first at Acadian (5th). My child has a learning disability. The teachers & administration has worked with us a great deal. They were willing to do what was best for my son. Very pleased! This year we finished the year with average grades which is great considering it was always a nail-biter. The ELA teacher pushed him beyond his comfort level and he has started reading more. Hopefully all of our years at Acadian will be as productive.

Not too good on discipling students who do bully and tease others. I don't think they do a very good job at handling bullies.

Parents who help and stay involved in their schools show their children leadership, morals, and support. It's ashame our school doesn't have more involved parents. Parents who help the school show their children that they care. Also, they can really see how discipline is handeled and understand what teachers go through day to day. This school is overall great. The faculty and staff are always willing to help. We have a brand new lunchroom, gym, library, and also 2 classrooms. Find time to show your child that you care about their work and their morals. Children learn respect and manners first at home. Your child's disrespect towards teachers shows that they must also disrespect you at home.

My son has always been painfully shy. His teacher this year is wonderful! She has helped him come out of this shell and blossum into a leader.

I believe that Acadian Middle School is not exactly up to the Lafayette Parish standards. It has very poor quality in general. I also hear nothing but complaints from my daughter on the way she is treated. Kids who tease or bully others are not being disciplined enough.

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.
