Amazing school. My child has been to 5 different school and this was her favorite one by far. She was in the French Immersion program and learned sign language in the first grade! We LOVE this school!!!

My daughter attends this school in the French immersion program. She loves her classmates and her French teacher very much. I have been pleased with the French immersion program at this school and I find that the French teachers work very hard with studends on their academics; above and beyond what is probably required. However, time and time again, I have been deeply dissapointed and confused by the administrative staff. They seem to be unconcerned about academics and place a higher value on cerimonial issues such as carnivals and award cerimonies that the parents are not even invited to. The administrative staff is also seemingly uninterested in feedback or any slight suggestion on improvements to their operational systems such as 'car-rider' pick up, etc.

This school has been a disappointment. My child is dyslexic. Her reading level has been below for three years. She has received reading tutoring for years and it hasn't helped. The school should try another program, but doesn't. SJM does not find ways to help students improve.

I have first and second graders at this school. Both come home excited to talk about new studies and how much fun they have learning. My second grader is doing very well in Math and reading. First grader is learning very well. I really think the reading program is a great tool. The teacher I have met are very helpfull and easy to work with. The principal is very kind and approchable and listens to the interests of the parent. I feel confident that my children will get a good education at this school. The teachers my children have are fun respectfull patient and educated. I would like our school to have perfoming arts program.

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.
