Very involved staff that care about the children and their future. Parents are always taking time out to volunteer and encourage school activities.

The education I received at this school fully prepared me for my time at LSU, which I graduated from with a 3.5 GPA. I also scored a 27 on my ACT because of the well rounded education I received. The classes are small, the teachers are experienced and the extracurricular activities are there for the right reasons - to teach responsibility and teamwork, not to win the school prestige. I enjoyed high school as much as a student can while there, but looking back and at other schools in my new area has proven that NVHS is a FANTASTIC school! You can be as involved in your child's school experience as you want, and if the administration knows you, it doesn't have to be for a negative reason.

I love the fact that North Vermilion is such a close school. Everyone knows everyone and they are all so extremely nice. The teachers are helpful and want you to pass and the counselors want everyone to succeed. They are trying to get all of the students on the path to a career after high school. I absolutely love my school!

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.
