I went to this school in the 50's and I loved it. My grandchild went there 2 years ago and it has certainly changed. I was so disappointed in the teachers at the school. Their discipline was awful. My grandchild had a hard time there and now is doing so much better. I wish my grandchild could have gone to the school I went to, much much better.

I think that after raising my own 3 children and now raising my grandson since birth........Richardson Elementary is the best school I have known! Caring and loving teachers and staff! We are very proud to be associated with this school! I just hate the idea when my boy goes to the 6th grade. He will no longer be at Richardson Elementary! Mrs. Steven Harrah for/Anthony Harrah

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.
