Lee Jr. High School is on the move! There is a great movement into the school and the halls are crowded. That is not always a bad thing. It shows that the community is finally seeing the wonderful things that are happening in our school and are putting their trust and confidence in the wonderful leadership of our Principal, Whitney Martin, and her staff. Did you know that this is the 50th anniversary of the school? Great things are happening at Lee Junior High School! Come see!

Unfortunately, you have some great teachers wnho really connect with the kids. But overall, there are so many teachers battling with classroom management. The overall climate is disturbing. Teachers do not resort to group activities and the lecture styles bore the kids to death.

This is an excellent school. Good facilities and top-notch teachers and super principal. It does not get any better. All three of my children went there and loved it.

I think Lee Junior High isn't a very good school. I have had my god daughter there for some time and she still has a hard time with everything...The guidence counselors & principals keep telling me everything is going to work out fine but things keep getting worse and worse for her. I am acctually moving to a new community to get her out of that school.

Lee Junior High has done so much with my academic achievement. I switched from a private school into Lee.Even though there was a culture shock,the teachers helped me every step of the way. Every teacher is certified unlike some private schools. The students in regular classes, get the same attention and education as students in honors and gifted. The school is VERY clean. This is just an overall GREAT school and I would like to say thanks for the wonderful education i recieved from it!

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.
