We have many well educational schools in New Orleans, but Mcmain Magnet out ranks them all. he consistency and equality of well educated teachers to nurture our kids are at Mcmain. Your child will enter this school as a student and prepare to leave as a young adult. The continued hardwork from the counselors, teachers, office workers and even janitorial workers everyone a part of Mcmain have taken a part in nurturing our young people into productive citizens. If you want your child with a quality education where their skills and knowledge exceeds to unlimited opportunities, choose this school.

If you want your child to get a quality education, I recommend you proceed to enroll them at McMain Magnet. I commend the teachers, counselors on a great year by year performance to educate our kids. Here the children are given lessons for the next level. Our kids come into Mcmain as young students and leave as young productive adults, this is why former graduates have succeeded at their chosen career. My son has been accepted into every college/university he has appiled too. Mcmain sets our children for the future and not for the moment.

I think that McMain is an excellent school for kids that want to make it in the real world. They apply you with all the materials you would need to give you a good education. It is also good because it's surrounded with different racial backgrounds. McMain is a good school. It has been nothing but progress from the school and it will continue. That's why I enjoy being there learning everything there is to learn.

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.
