Horrible school. The office staff is very rude, and they don't mind hanging up on you. Edline isn't up to date that often. My son went to a school in New Orleans, before coming to this school. Do I ever regret moving up here! If you have never had a child in school in South Louisiana, you don't know what you are missing. My son is doing 2nd grade math in the 4th grade. He hates school. He isn't being motivated during the school day. I can only do so much, but without a good school, he isn't going to get the education he deserves. I would not recommend this school. My son will not be returning here next year.

Swartz has well educated my 4th and 5th grader, the staff is very concern about the students well-being, if they could help a parnet in need, the staff will go over and beyond to meet the need of the parnet or the students. i give this school much respect for the things they have done for my family.

Great school that really focuses on the students getting a great education. It's like the education of an expensive private school, in a public school...it's great!

Swartz Elem. is an excellent school with very caring teachers and excellent administrative and supportive staff. The facilities are approximately 20 years old and still look brand new. The education provided was very challenging for our third grader this past year and we look forward to this next year. There seems to be great communication between the teachers and administrative staff and discipline is not a problem at Swartz Elem. Mrs. Morris runs a very 'tight ship' and communicates well with the students. Overall, Swartz Elementary is a great 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.
