The curriculum is ok...but a lot faculty is not very warm...When I went in to enroll my daughter the principle was the only one that day that was nice...the rest of them held their nose in the air and had really bad attitudes especially the secretary and the assistant principle...Also I have noticed if you are not an athlete the school tends to treat you like your nobody...

I feel Neville is a good high school choice out of the district choices. I would like to see the teaching staff at NHS take more active interest in the freshmen student's academic progress. These students are entering a different form of learning/studies and are in need of positive guidance. I belive this would help their future years be more successful. I would like to be more involved in my child's freshmen year and not get the reaction from the staff that I am babying my child.

Neville is the best high school available to students today. The faculty and staff help the students in any way possible. Especially senior(2005) guidence counsler, Ms. Thomas. She keeps the 2005 seniors on their toes about classes they need and any other information they need so they can graduate. She is loved by many. Coach Rankins is the best! Keep that tiger pride up Coach!

I think Mr. Vidrine has instilled displine and pride in the students and school. With his leadership he has made Neville H.S., one of the leading academic schools in the state. Neville continues to make a name for itself with each graduating class.

Mr. Vidrine is and excellent principal. Coach Rankins fills a need for a role model for certain students but does not act as more a pricipal than Mr. Vidrine.

I believe Neville is one of the best high schools in Ouachita parish. The leadership provided by the educators at the facility is exceptional. I have seen many succesful adults, both young and old who attribute their successful lives to having such a great start at a wonderful high school. I truly believe graduating from Neville has helped me become a better student in college. There were so many useful things I learned then that I am able utilize now. Thanks a million Neville and keep up the good work!

I believe that neville high school is a great school but, correct me if I am wrong Mr Rankins(Coach Rankins) is more of a principle than Mr. Vidrine (no offense what-so-ever) But overall it is a good school compared to others.

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.
