My children attend Fisher's middle and high schools. My son is in grade 10 and my daughter is in grade 8. Today was my daughter'a first day of Leap, she was quite nervous but then told me that the teachers really helped her calm down. My daughter is a bad test taker and gets very worked up when she takes an important test. She takes all honors courses and so does my son. They like most of their teachers but, like all children, despise others. But I do think Fisher is in need of the money, every bit counts. While Fisher has it's problems, I wouldn't send my kids any where else.

Fisher is great because the town of Lafitte is behind it, the support from the community is wonderful and everyone wants to see the children be the best. I am also a graduate of Fisher and am proud of the fact that it continues to improve in academics and extracurricular activities.

Fisher is an excellent school. I graduated in 2004, and I would love to send my future children there. Fisher has a wonderful small town atmosphere, and everyone who is lucky enough to go there should be happy.

Both of my daughters graduated form Fisher and I am proud what they have learned in school not only about school work but what the school has taught theme about life and the world around them. They are both great young adults and I thank Fisher High School Teachers and Staff for helping my children in getting ready for their future.

I am totally satisfied with this school. My son is very proud of his school and he would not want to go anywhere else. I like the fact that the Principal and Asst. Principal monitor the grounds daily. They know their students. They are very professional, but friendly to the kids. The administrators, faculty and staff will go out of their way to help and encourage your child. There are many extracurricular activities offered to the students. I could go on & on! We love Fisher! It is a great school!

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.
