So far we really like this school. The teachers and all the staff seem very caring towards the kids. My daughter is in the Kinder Spanish Immersion program and the teachers are great. Very devoted to the kids and their learning.

My daughter has been in the Spanish Immersion program for 5 years at Alice Boucher. I have found her Spanish teachers to be excellent. They have all been caring and concerned about her education. Not only is my daughter fluent in Spanish, but in all of her subjects. I will say, she has not had more than 20 children in her class, currently there are 12, so the small class size provides for more attention. I am sure that the other immersion programs, French and Mandarine Chinese will also flurish, but the lack of parental involvement and concerned staff may be the reason for the problematic behaviors with the other students.

This is the very worst school that my child has ever attended. It is a low performance school! I am extermely upset by the lack of concern for the students at this school. The curriculum is not up to par or rather the students are not being taught. As I stated earlier this is a very low performing school, one that I think should be closed.

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.
