I C S was an exceptional school. Sure, there were students that disrupted the entire flow, but the teachers there were very professional in dealing with those. Many of the teachers there were certified with a few (TFA) Teach for America. My child received Speech Therapy from a very caring and professional therapist. I saw a great deal of improvement in her speech. As a parent who sent her child to a school to learn and not to baby set, I made sure that there was carryover at home from what was started at school. We must understand, that a single teacher in a class of 30 or more cannot do it alone, and we are fooling ourselves if we believe this can be done. Again, I had no problems with ICS.

This is a failing "F" rated school and I can see why. My child only attended for a week and that was too long. The students have no books, there is no communication to the parents, the school day is 30 minutes shorter than other schools in the area. In addition to the school day being shorter, the first 30 minutes of school is breakfast time. The school day also ends early on Fridays for Professional Development. The kids they service really need their day to be spent receiving instruction. The learning curriculum is minimal at best. They are doing a disservice to any children they serve. I'm sure there are a few good teachers in the bunch, but overall it's seriously lacking. This is a school with a high turnover rate of faculty/staff.

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.
