This is my first year at Henry Heights. We recently moved from another city in Lousiana in which I had a very BAD experience with the school and my one of my daughters teacher so I was ready for the worse. I must say I was totally impressed from day one. The teachers are very caring and attentive to both of my daughters needs and skills. My 1st grader was allowed to start in French immersion on a trial basis and is now making A's. Job Well Done!

I have been at this school for 6 years. I will be here another 6.Our school offers French immersion. I have daughter in 4th grade. She can speak,read,and write french fluently. My favorite thing is the parent, teacher, staff involvement. They have many activities after hours for students, family, and staff to get together and have a little fun. Awesome idea!!! I also love the fact that i can call at last min for a conference and be seen the same day. The teachers are so wonderful and caring. They dont mind staying late if it means better our children. They also offer programs for children with learning disabilities. I have 14 yr old. He was slow. They worked with him faithfully. And now he is testing out of his class but they didnt overload him while he was learning. Hats off to this school!Congratulations on a Great Job!!

My grandson is in kindergarten at Henry Heights. I can see why he is so excited about school. I was invited by his teacher to come in and read to the class. This gave me the opportunity to see first hand how the teachers and staff relate to the children. I never seen such caring individuals at any other elementary school. Everyone that I met could tell me a little something about my grandson and what he was doing in school. Even the crossing guard knew him by name. Also, I am so proud to be able to tell my friends and co-workers that you are teaching him French. Thank you so much for caring.

My son had problems at his prior school before comming to Henry Heights Elementary last year. In the past school year my son has improved dramatically. I would reccomend anyone to send their child there. The staff is absolutely wonderful and willing to help parents with their needs and their childs' needs. Having a school that both you and your child is really comfortable with is really hard to find, I love this school and how well my son's educational process is taken care of. Rebecca Rowland

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.
