This school is a place that the teachers are afraid of do what is best for a child because they think that they must fit in with the principal of the school,she has her daughter as a snitch to tell her what the teachers are talking about. It is so sad because there is some teachers there with so much talent but are afraid to do what is best for the children. I think it would be good for the principals of the Leesville school M be moved around every year. Wait they did that but they did not move Mrs Simmons wow being in the click has its advantages . I am so thankful we are out of that school soon. I would tell any one new to here drive to Pickering or Anacoco the two school are down to earth and want to help the kids no matter what it takes and work with moms and dad's to do what is best for the kids. One more thing the yelling is kept to a minimum at thes schools my child tell me everyday that the teacher yells at the class every day. My dog runs from me if I yell at it what type of teaching are they using

My son was moved to this school cause our job moved us here, this school is not helpful are understanding at all, when we moved here we didn't know our way around this city. And it was quick to learn that this school takes in early because of the buses they say, And this school is not easy to find at all if you never been to it before and its not located on a GPS. So if you new to the area and your child has to go to this school, if they 1 or 2 mintues late they give the student after school detention for a hour, they holler at the children at this school and I noticed teachers have no patiences with students either....

My son was moved from overseas in a dod school and when he got to this school he was welcomed with open arms. I have to say that my son got a very good education here and will be moving on to the 5th grade next year. T his school loves and welcomes all kids along with military kids also. My son was one of the best in his class at this school and at his last one also.

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.
