Posted December 3, 2009

I love this school. I'm in 11th grade and I've been going to Mansfield almost all my life. I transfered from a private school in elementary school to Mansfield Elementary and continued onto Mansfield Middle, where I transfered out again to go to a different school. I came back to MHS at the end of my sophmore year and I'm loving it. I have and am participating in things that I never would have had a chance to do if I would have stayed in the other school. I am in JROTC, along with many clubs and sports. The counsiler along with the teachers push you to become the very best that you can be and support you fully. I've changed my mind many times on what I wanted to do with my future and they've helped me finally decide and are seeing to it tthat I get what I need.

As a parent, I have been very pleased with Mansfield High School. My son attended a private school before transferring to MHS as a sophomore. We chose MHS because of its outstanding faculty and academic program. All of my son's teachers are highly qualified and very accessible. One of the things I have most appreciated is that his teachers have tried to challenge him, not letting him sit back and just do what it takes to get by. As a result, he has had several opportunities that he might not have had elsewhere. His dad and I have been very pleased with the educational experiences offered at Mansfield High School.

This school has undertaken being a Teacher Advancemet Program school. It made great strides in the first year implementation as rated by the Louisiana State Department of Education. We look forward to seeing the progress as they begin their second year. Students have many opportunities for excellence in academics because of the caring attitude of teachers. Academics provides 5 vocational academies, such as Prostart, agricscience, performing arts, business, mililtary and biomedical to complement the academic program. Quiz Bowl, Science Olympiad and Literary Rally are academic endeavors available to students. JROTC is another program in which students can enhance their career outlooks. Students are also given opportunities to participate in football, girls and boys basketball, volleyball, girls and boys track, baseball, softball and girls soccer.

MHS has a great Culinary Arts Program, choir and Agricultural Program. Many of their students attend local colleges where they are on the Dean's list.

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.
