I LOVE Creekside!! I have gotten A,B honorroll every 9 weeks so far and it's the 4th 9 weeks but we haven't gotten our report cards yet.I'm in 6th grade.The only thing I would change about Creekside is the fighting and cussing behind the teacher's backs.The teachers are soooo nice!!

My grand daughter is doing great in math thanks to great caring teachers

If I could change a few things about Creekside, this is what I would change: 1. More communication between parents and teachers. 3. More counseling for the children and maybe have the parents be involved as well. 4. Have baseball team for the boys. 5. Give more parents information about how to join in school functions and programs. Creekside is a tuff school for a lot of kids. I know that drugs or a serious problem and I know it is tuff to stop the spread of drugs. We need more drug prevention programs for these kids to come to for help. I would gladly help with these programs.

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.
