Jack Hayes is a great school. My 6 year daughter was doing soo poorly in her other school. So a friend told me about Jack Hayes so we bought a house in the school district so my kids could attend and they have been on the principal list every six weeks since they have been going to Jack Hayes. They are eager to learn now, learning has become exciting to them. They both love there teacher because they take the time out to teach them and show them that they truely care about them and want them to learn. The teacher go above and beyond for each student. Open house is a great way to let the parents know exactly what the kids are doing in class and the teacher has everything laid out for you and explains everything step by step so you won't leave wondering why my child got this grade or why my child not doing great in this subject because the teacher are very hands on and have everything notated. They also notify you when your child has drop in a subject and let you know what you can do take help your child bring his or her grades back up. I would like to Thank Jack Hayes for all of there hard work and for helping my kids to become some of there top students.

I am really pleased with my son's progress at Jack Hayes. He was in first grade last year under Mrs. Stevenson and she was an excellent teacher. My son learned a lot and really enjoyed being in her class.

I have been very pleased with Jack Hayes. My son started Pre-K this year ,and I was really worried on how he would adjust ,but the staff has been wonderful,and he really enjoys the environment. He loves his teacher ,and I can already see how much he has matured and learned in just a couple of months. The teachers really keep the parents informed and involved in their childs education. I am really proud that my son goes to this school

We moved here two years ago and I was concerned about my children adapting to a new school. Well my worries were unwarranted. My daughter says she loves Jack Hayes more than any other school she has attended and has informed me that she will not go to any other school until after the sixth grade!As for me, I commend all of the teachers who are dedicated to children. The teachers encourage parental involvement and I'm very pleased with the curriculum and the implementation of the lessons.I only hope the other schools in this area are as fortunate to have such a great staff.I wish there could be more time set aside for quality P.E. class.

My son attended this school from k-6th grade. My wife and I am pleased with the academic progression that he has demonstrated through the years. The learning environment was outstanding and I'm pleased to know that a quality public education still exist. The teachers at the school were professional and welcomed parental involvement. The only thing that I think that should be considered is to add a foreign lanuage class. I would recommend this school to anyone moving to the area.

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.
