I love Verda Elementary. I praise God for this school. Everything about it. The teachers and facility are dedicated to the education of our young people. There should be more schools like Verda!

All that was said in the first review is true. I came from a big city and find that this small school is wonderful for my children. I only wish that more could be done to give back to the school. I wish there was some way that updates could be made to the buildings as well as to the playground. I know that the school does the best on what is given them I only wish that some type of collaborative effort could be made by the school board, community businesses, and families to make the improvements that are needed.

Verda Elementary is a wonderful small town school. Education is very important to the teachers and administration. They know every student by name and do every thing possible to help you with any problems you may have. They encourage and welcome parents to be involved in different activities. In my opinion Verda is just not a school it is an extended family.

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.
