i like oakdale school it has done great things for my kids
—Submitted by a parent


Posted December 14, 2006

My son is in Pre K, Ms. Melanie is a great teacher, he is really learning a lot. So far this has been a great experience for my child and I. I am hoping to become more involved with OES when I start working in Oakdale. I know there are parents that don't have a full time job and could give a helping hand and I am sure the school could use it. I hope to see more extracurricular activities development in our community. I am open to suggestions and willing to help with anything to better our communty and help our schools.

The teachers are wonderful here although I think having an open classroom is disruptive for alot of the students. I think our children would do a whole lot better if it were closed classrooms.

This school is very small and crowded! Despite all that my child is getting a quality education. The teachers have always been there for both of us. The principal and staff members have always been great.

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.
