Posted November 6, 2012

I am fairly new to the school and still assessing. My daughter seems to like going there and she does not complain about it. The school seems to be orderly, have not noticed any discipline problems, not satisfied with current rating so I reviewed the 8th grade scores from 2008 to 2012 scores which seem to be on an upward scale; will review again. The Principal seems to be very visible and involved with the students.

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.
