I tried to keep an open mind at the beginning of the school year, but as the year has gone on, I have become more and more disappointed in the conduct of staff members and the behavior of students. There is no real order in this school. Half of the students don't even abide by the dress code that is supposedly 'strictly enforced'. It is hard for me to tell my child that he has to wear a certain pair of tennis shoes when he sees other children wearing whatever they want. Some of the staff have actually become beligerant with parents and confrontational. If the staff does not know how to conduct themselves properly, how are they going to teach the students to behave properly? I will give this school one more year to prove to me that they can teach my child instead of hamper his early education.

Maggiore Elementary is a caos.It's Dirty, the restrooms smell bad, the staff are unqualified, they can not put order in the cafeteria big kids pick on small kids , also to mention, The lunch Meal payment control is a mess (We keep getting no payment notices, when we already have paid.) Last Year, our kids wwere attending Schneckenburger Elementary. Our kids loved that school. It's more Organized and clean. Our kids did not get as sick as in maggiore. schneckenburger is 6 blocks from our house and maggiore is 1 mile , now m our kids are at home in a program homeschool.

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.
