I love this school and the teachers I give this school five stars so do my kids.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted August 20, 2003

it has been my experience that the parents have no say and cannot get any cooperation from the principal. a parent cannot request anything for his child. just take what they give you and be happy. this has to change.

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.
