I wish I had never enrolled my child in Loranger High. Here it is, the first day of school, and because one of their faculty members failed to document that my daughter turned in a text book, my child cannot enroll in her new school, as we have moved out of the parish. So the choice they are giving me is either pay for a text book that they have in their possession, or my child cannot be enrolled in any other school...UGGH! I wouldn't recommend sending a dog to Loranger High School

I believe this school is average. The accelerated classes are not advanced enough. I have spoken to a few graduates that went on to college, and they felt like LHS did not prepare them for college. I have been debating wether I should move my son, but I don't have a lot of options. There are some really good teachers, but I just feel like the students are not pushed enough academically. The principal is a very intelligent woman, but it is time for her to retire.

I am currently a student here at LHS and I like the school. That's saying alot, coming from someone who has attended more than 4 private and public scools. When I first came here, I thought it would be the typical high school with cliques and better treatment for other 'elite' students. But it's not. You can safely talk to just about anyone in the school. There are some people who dislike each other, and fights rarely occur. And the accusations of athletes given better opportunities, that is simply not true. I'm a new student, I'm not in athletics, cheerleading, band, or any other school activites yet I have access to all accelerated classes and I found myself enjoying the lessons. The only thing I'd say is the major downside to the school is the lack of variety of courses. But that's understandable, since this is a small school.

I am a current student at Loranger High, and I must bring some light to these horrible accusations. I have attended Loranger schools since kindergarten, and my my parents did the same. Also I am enrolled in as many accelerated programs as LHS offers, so some may consider me one of these 'elite'. However I must say that all students at Loranger High School are given equal opportunities. The standard of education individual students receive is based on their will to succeed. Unlike many other schools in the area, LHS teachers will not 'give' anyone anything. Loranger's academic platform is built on hard work. Therefore a student simply MUST have a good work ethic to excel. In no way is elitism a part of LHS. Also the administration at Loranger High, is tops. Our principal is very highly educated, and has nothing but our best interest at heart. All of us.

If I had it to all over, my children would not have attended Loranger High School. This school is all fluff and no substance. It's a great school if you want a 'Stepford' child. I want a superior education. Teachers are not allowed to teach. Discipline is enforced according to who you are or the connections a child's parent has.

i am a parent which 2 of my children attended LHS... and i agree with past comments how it all depends on who you are... i was very involved with my children education but 'elite' children were treated different from the rest of the student body... what a shame, since my oldest is very bright and went to a gifted school his junior year and now is doing great in college, my second who had the unforunate of being targeted by the 'elite' group the actions of LHS administration and his peers is still unknown to how it effected him for life... only time will tell...

Loranger is in desprate need of a new principle so that it might see the harm the staff is inflicting on some of the 'lower class' students. If you are not one of the elite, you mean nothing to them. Special treatment is given to atheletes and cheerleaders. What is done for the children that just their struggling to get a education? Nothing!!! They tutor and give bonus work to the althelete but none is provided if your not one.

The principal at Loranger High School is simply one of the best pure educators in Louisiana. She has successfully raised the academic scores by changing attitudes and paying attention to every detail. Anyone who does not think that Loranger High School is a great school is telling one 'tall tale.' Loranger High can meet the needs of you child.

This school would benefit from a new administration. The principal does not treat all students and faculty members fairly. I know of a few outstanding teachers who have left Loranger High School because of this problem. Discipline is very inconsistent, and in some situations, non-existent.

Loranger High is one of the best schools I have ever been to, the teachers were so involved, EVERY student fit in. It was a very close knit school. While I attended school there I learned a lot more then I learned in 2 other schools. I would give anything to go back to Loranger High school.

Loranger High School is by far the best around. The school is not just your typical school, it is a community. Everyone cares about everyone else. All school activities as well as local programs work together for the betterment of the community. We have teachers who truly care and get the job done. This is the kind of school a parent looks for when choosing an educational facility for their child. I moved to the area sixteen years ago. Before I moved here my children were in parochial schools. While I was looking for a home (in various areas of the state and out of state) my primary concern was the schools. The schools are what brought me here and kept me here. I successfully raised four children and they all graduated from Loranger High. They went on to college and/or successful careers. This school district is by far the best.

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.
