This school has poor academic assistance for children with special needs! The staff is ill equipped with knowledge on any type pf behavioral development teaching and show no interest in doing otherwise. So sad that the school has no funding for much of anything.

This is a great school! There's so much to do and the teachers love their jobs. Everyone knows what they're talking about and are pretty kind. If anyone has a problem, some adult on campus will help. I loved the two years of my being there and hope others will too. If you can be good and stay out of trouble, you'll love Webster.

The principal ship is great. A special thank you goes to Mr. W, Mrs. H., and Mrs. J. for all the extra time that they spend with our students.

I would like to say that my childs experience at Webster Jr. High has been a very good one. He has done very well in all his classes. He is on the Honor Guard and loves it. The sponsor is so giving of his time and is great one on one with the kids with encouraging words. I appreciate the principal. She really cares about the students and is very involved in all aspects of the school. Her door has always been open to any questions or concerns. Her reaction to situations are timely. The teachers are all student related. I have never not been able to talk to a teacher or had any problems with communication about my child. The school has shown concern for the students productivity and promote field trips for those with well-behaviors. I am glad we choose to stay in this school system.

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.
