After moving here from Virginia, I finished my 8th grade year at Mandeville Junior High. There is some areas that the school could improve in. My math teacher was quite impatient, and snappy. The building could also use a small renovation. But, Mandeville Junior high also has good student life as well. Despite my math teacher, everyone else cared for the students and did an excellent job. Great teachers and administration. If you're an 8th grader, you're in for a big surprise at the end of the year, and believe me, you'll enjoy it!

My daughter attends Mandeville Junior High and we are very happy with the teaching staff. My daughter has excelled academically since she has attended MJH. It has helped her score high on the ACT and provides an open and supportive environment for kids.

I love Mandeville Junior High. The teachers are great! I learn so much everyday. I feel that I am getting a good impact of academics. The learning plan they have here is very good. I am positive about my grades and the standardized tests. This school is one of the best public schools in Louisiana.

My child was physically threatened by an irate teacher in front of other students. The teacher is still teaching there and has not given as much as an apology, even after letters to the school board and principal.

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.
