This school doesn't service 4th grade. Its an ok school. The current principal needs to be concerned less with how the community sees him, as a good ole boy, and more about the discipline issues he is not taking care of in the school.

I was not impressed with the school from the first day. There was too much emphasis on non-academic classes, they stressed the "great band" far too much for my comfort. The teachers are good, but the school doesn't offer more than one advanced class or any more electives than band or chorus.

Iy is a great school. I have been there since 5th grade, but there is way to much mold. We need to get rid of it!

My daughter was in 5th grade last year (07). Her teachers kept us well informed, sent us weekly reports, and challenged her. Both of her teachers have websites with their lesson plans, which helps a lot. The 5th graders have an assignment journal. Sometimes we bounced it off the lesson plans and found that she was missing an assignment or two. The teachers answer their email in a timely manner. Expect a lot of homework. My only complaint would be that the chorus was frustrating for my daughter and her friends. She said that the majority of the kids did not take the class seriously. I could tell during their performances. She is looking forward to sixth grade.

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.
