My son is in kindergarden and is learning a lot. Mrs Myers is his teacher and she is the best. We sure are going to miss her when my son goes to first grade.

I love Plantation! I have had 3 children go through that school. The staff, counselors, Principals they are all top notch. There is not a school in this state that can beat what Plantation offers children. Education, Safety, high moral standards. Every child in involved! The represent the true meaning 'No Child Gets Left Behind' If every school was ran like Plantation we would be #1 in the nation.

My kids have been at Plantation for all of thier elementary years. The parent involvement is great, wonderful teachers, dedicated staff. There is some problem with air quality/allergens in the environment, but otherwise an excellent school. They really want the kids to succeed!

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.
