The principal and teachers try to understand and help children. The principal has the ability to reason with children and make them feel they can trust him. The teachers will work with the students if they are willing to try and do their part. I feel for the first time since I moved to Pineville that my children are in an environment where the District mission statement 'Every child every day whatever it takes.' has true meaning.

This school is the greatest school ever. I went to this school last year and I'm going this year and they have great teachers that are beautiful inside and out and they have a wonderful principal and a great vice principal. This school's teacher you might think they are mean but they aren't their just strict and because of them being so strict they are helping you to get ready for high school. This school is the best school I've ever been to!

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.
