I went to school here and now I attend LSU. I loved it! I have so many great memories, and my teachers were so wonderful and caring. It definitely prepared me for S.J. Welsh. Their SPARK program also helped me tremendously, so check into that if possible.

Prien Lake is a great school with fabulous teachers. They focus strongly on the academics side so it can be a little tough on the 'overactive' child, but as a whole I have been very pleased with all aspects of PLE for my two children.

This elementary school has been a really wonderful experience for my children. The Principals as well as the staff are really supportive and caring. I feel very secure sending my kids to Prien Lake. The education that Prien Lake has to offer is outstanding. I am very proud to say that my kids attend this school. Every year gets better & better. This past year my daughter had Mrs Dupre and she was unbelievable. All of the teachers at Prien Lake are top notch !!

This is a wonderful school. It is a public school but feels like a private school. The French Immersion Program is wonderful. My children have really grown here. I love this school.

My son attends school here, it is a wonderful school and I would recommend it to anyone. My child is safe here and he was taught very well. Mrs. Carlson was his teacher and she was wonderful. Her website was available every Friday, you never had to wonder what type of week your child had. She had pictures of every event that went on for the week, the student planner kept you aware of everything you needed to know. Very fair, qualilty education and good parent involvement.

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.
