Excellent is the only rating for this school! As a parent of McDonogh # 32 Literacy Charter School, I know first-hand of all the excellence that has been introduced to the children since 2007 under Mr. L. Green s leadership. My child has been with the school for 2 years and returning for her 3rd year as a gifted and talented student. As a volunteer, I take an active part in my child s education and the advancement of the school. I find the achievements of the school to be phenomenal. Yet, the stats are incorrect for the school. If there is only 161 students enrolled and the teachers have 54 students, then there are only 3 teachers in the school. The correct stats are about 600 students and teachers have about 25+/- students. McDonogh # 32 is 1 of the leading schools to send a child for their education.

This is a great school, the instructors and teachers really take time with the students. My grandson raphael thornton goes there and he has gotten so much better and he is contimually on the principal honor roll, and i can honestly say the teachers there is doing a teriffic job... Keep up the good work

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.
