i went to this school and everyone treated me like family and ive been there since pre-k and i have family there. the teachers are amazing. there is rarely bullying so i recommend this school to parents.


Posted July 8, 2013

Some staff is good; most need improvement. Teachers (some) are always yelling at students, not good. I am aware that children need discipline but constantly yelling is not going to produce good results. Marlon is awesome, and so is Mr. London & Mrs. Paul; they keep this school going. A better discipline plan needs to be implemented for 5-8 grade. They also need teacher assistants for grades pk-2 and another school counsler to assist Ms. Latter (she is also an asset to the school)..

I love the teachers and so do my kids. The office staff is helpful to parents and students alike.

With parental presence to show support for your child & a team effort w/ the teacher(s), u can get what you put into it. This means constant communication re: homework and test dates and helping your child at home. Improvements have been made post storm to deal with discipline problems w/a new principle & the presence of security guards. Lunch prep, quality & selection needs imprvt.

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.
