N.P. Trist is the school that my two boys went to years ago and now two of my grandchildre go there and love the school. That what counts if the children are happy.

I have twin boys who started at Trist in 1/09 coming from a middle school in Poplarville, Ms. They put them in Honors classes and they have done wonderful. I can not say enough about this school. The principal is wonderful and my children love school and don't want to miss a day....

Trist has been a wonderful experience for my daughters; I have 1 in 8th and 1 in 6th. Both in honors and have done extremely well. I feel each teachers they have had, has pushed them that extra mile to get more out of them academically. My youngest is in academic games, and LOVES it. Extracurricular you ask? My 8th grader is in Student Council, 4-H Jr. Leader and a Cheerleader. My 6th grader is in Academic games, Jr. Beta and Cheerleading. To give you a little feedback: once the girls missed the bus and I was already at work, I could not leave. The girls were going to walk to school because they did not want to stay home. So THEY called a few family members before the found one who could bring them to school. Now to me 'That says something about N.P. TRIST!' I love this school.

My son was in the 6th grade honors program last year and he had the most awesome teachers, Mrs. Martin & Mrs. Tortorich. I was very impressed with this school!

Trist has provided an excellent education for my daughter. The honors program is wonderful. The teachers & administration have provided an environment that made learning enjoyable. They have truly prepared her for the transition to high 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.

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.
