Batiste Cultural Arts Academy, now Renew, is the best school a parent could ask for. Not only do they run all year, and all day, they have dance, band, music, and choir. They have a terrific team of teachers that we would feel honored to call family! They have pushed my children and held them responsible for their actions, (whether good or bad), in a way no other school has before. My children have attended BCAA for 3+ years and will continue to as long as they are within our reach! Thank You BCAA for all of your hard work and dedication to each and every child!

This school is horrible. It must be worst in New Orleans. The Middle School kids are out of control with fighting and disrespect. I worry about my son who is in the 6th this year all day. We have got to get out of this school. They promised all the arts and there is nothing for two years. Now theyre are some arts but not like they promised. The school is run by principles that are too young and lack experiences to do the job right. Don't believe the hype they keep saying their test scores are great now but on this site you can see they only get a 3. It's terrible.

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.
