To be honest, this school was not learning anything. The teachers would just give up on the kids when they were upset. The school was just a mess. That is why the school grade letter is so low. I Don't prefer for anyone kid to go to this school. The teachers and the principal and the teacher talk to the kids any kind of way. Please Don't send your child her.please bring ms Thomas or ms Connie back because Logan is not fit to be a principal.

Andrew Wilson Charter is a great school! it has been recognized as a 5 star school. My grand kids started there in 2006 after returning home to the city after Hurricane Katrina. The Principles during that time Ms.Sheila Thomas, then Ms. Connie Young were both involved Principles who knew the children by name and worked well with the parents. There is always parent involvement at the meetings and many activities. The new Principle Mr. Crowe is also involved and caring. Ms. Walker's position has been very positive & helpful to us. We have had positive interactions with all their teachers both in person & via phone on a regular basis during almost 6 years now.

My two daughters came to Andrew Wilson Charter School this year after attending a public school in North Louisiana that was considered "great" by most accounts. Wilson has been a breath of fresh air for us. It is a beautiful campus, AWESOME staff (I mean absolutely AMAZING), wonderful administration, and a very respectful student body. We couldn't be happier with our decision. I encourage you to come down to Broadmoor and take a look. And PS: Ms. Tyson in 1st grade and Mr. Crowe (the principal) is so enthusiastic it's contagious.

This school is very unprofessionally run and staffed. Inadequate teacher knowledge as well as training. Does not prepare your child for the next grade. Nonvisible principal. This a free for all school eventhough it has a good reputation in the community.

My daughter has been going to Wilson for a couple of years. Only this year, third, have we encountered problems. The teacher has no classroom management and apears to be clueless each time I or my daughter pick the child up. Would not recommend this school for lots of reasons though.

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.
