I wouldn't send my dog to this school. I petitioned the school board to get my son pulled out of the French Immersion Program at this school. My child was literally coming home with F's everyday and not once did any one try to setup a meeting with me to see what the problem was, nor did they even act like they were concern. They would just send him to the office everyday, til finally I had enough. My son in now going to Ossun Elementary and has been making honor roll ever sense. Not to mention he had 4 behavior referrals when he was at Evangeline and sense he has been at Ossun he hasn't had not one. Even his new teacher couldn't understand why he ever had 4 behavior referrals. He has been at Ossun for 2 years now, and I have not had one phone call of anyone complaining about my child, if his teacher does calls it out of concern, to see what we can do to get him to the next level. I can't stand the staff at this school.

Mrs. McNeal does an awesome job as she continues to help my son, Cornell Tardy II, with his reading opportunities. Cornell struggles severely in reading and excel in other areas. She has shown major concern that my child succeed in her class. She keep in contact with me to assure me that progress, if any, has been made. Mrs. McNeal has answered all of my notes that I have sent and she explains things to me when I am not sure of exactly what is going on. I say all of this to say that, Evangeline has a very valuable asset when it comes to the second grade teacher, Mrs. McNeal. I appreciate all she do for me and my child, Cornell Tardy II, this school year. Thank You Evangeline, Tangi Robertson

The principal is retired on the job and does not have the best interest of the student. She has no people skills. Some of the French teachers are not qualified to teach classes other than French.

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.
