College prep isnt really a bad scholl jst very strict to prepare scholars for the real world,it allows us to talk in hallways now they jst wanted to know if we were mature enough for this....they do give after scholl activites football,basketball,etc..at least you and your kids can know they are getting a quality education and i have been attending nocp for two years now and it has been a good experience

My son attends this school and I am very disappointed on the 'college prep' tactics this staff tries to inforce. I went to college and graduated..... I dont ever remember being treated they way these children are treated. If your student is 'smart', please dont subject him/her to the children or the staff at this school. Your child will surely be ridiculed for being different and harrassed by the teachers for being so inquisitive! This school offers no extra curricular activities, enrichment programs or an outlet for the students to build lasting relationships or blow off steam after sitting there for hours on end being pounded with school work. i mean.... everyone deserves a break to break the monotony of it all!

I currently go to New Orleans College Prep and to tell you the truth,I DONT LIKE IT.Its my 1st year(and only year)here and i regret coming here.The discipline is super tough.That school worries so much about walking in lines and not talking in hallways,they dont even realize our future is on the line.When we do something bad,we get sets(muliplication time tables),go to bootcarm,or be forced to take home our SUSPENSION PAPERS.I am definately not going back next year.I reccomend u dont send your children here.Take it from someone who experiences it everyday.

I totally agree with the first parent, the staff was very misleading about what their intentions were for the students. Now I am a firm beliver in dicipline, but this school takes it to another level. I have a child that has never had any dicipline problems, but the rational for the teacher's punishment is that the good has to suffer for the bad. The quality of the student has alot to do with the quality of the parent, and if you are looking for your child to make good quality friends. this is not the school for them. Some parents are totally out of control, and sometimes with good reason. The schools stresses the importance of college, but it seems like they're preparing them for the military.

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.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Louisiana used the Louisiana Educational Assessment Program for the 21st Century (LEAP 21) to assess students in grades 4 and 8 in math, English language arts, science and social studies. The LEAP 21 is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Louisiana. The goal is for all students to score at or above basic on the test.

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.
