This is my sons first year at RHS and I am very satisfied. It is my alma mater so its only fair that he gets the same top rated education as I did. I had a great foundation and so will he. Everyone there is like family and that is what you need at a school, faculty members who nurture and care for the students and will do whatever it takes to ensure that no child is left behind. Rayville High(academics/extracurricular activities) has a lot to offer students who are willing to take advantage of the opportunity to obtain a good education. I highly recommend that any parent admit their child to this school. *****and four thumbs! Go Hornets!

If I were a parent I would want my child attending this school. This school offers very good things. I just recently graduated from Rayville High and learned many things. I love this school with every thing it has. My favorite was the dance team, which I was apart of for 4 years. Going to this school was a great opportunity. The teachers are great and our principal keep us inline. There were hard times and good times. The good times is what I remember most. I love this High School and miss it dearly. The best thing about it is having the best guidance counciler direct you in the right path. I want to thank her with everything I have. Thanks Rayville High School. You have taught me great things.

Rayville High School is top notch. Many of the recent graduates are in college or on their way to college, and this years grads are on their way as well. Going to college is much easier after experiencing the great classes and administration atRayville. And not only does Rayville exceed academically, but it's also successful in extracurricular activities. Rayville has an excellent band, choir, and athletic teams. And more importantly, the coaches and band/choir leaders want to see their players and musicians succeed academically and beyond. Great teachers and coaches and can you top that? Besides working on the school and making it look better, because Rayville is doing that too.

I am a student at RHS and I feel like it should be given a ten from a one to ten scale. We have, as far as I know, the highest academic scores in the parish. If a student needs help, then the teachers will gladly help the student and help them until their problem is resolved. The students are allowed to choose from art, band, and other electives. They can also choose from a wide variety of sports. Thank you for listening to what i had to say. I love my school, and I think other people should too.

Rayville High School is an excellent school, and the administration is of the highest caliber. Dr. Georgia Ineichen is one of the finest principals in the state. She deeply cares about her students, and she has worked tirelessly to build one of the best faculties in the area. Since Dr. Ineichen has returned to RHS, the positive perception of the school has dramatically increased due to her continual efforts to raise public awareness of the school's many achievements. Rayville High School can take pride in being one of the few schools to have no employees teaching outside their area of certification; the school has consistently improved its accountability scores; and this school has raised ACT scores above the state average. Rayville High Scool is a fine example of a public institution that is constantly working to improve itself for the benefit of its sudents and its community.

The Principal, Dr. Georgia Ineichen seems professional, but is not. She likes to use words like thug toward the students, which is quite sad and very unprofessional. She walks fast at all times, as if she has something to do. But this is not the case. She just doesn t have time for the students, and the teachers. The students and the teachers are afraid of saying the truth. Students feel repressed, and most of the teachers fear unemployment. Some teachers challenged Dr. Georgia Ineichen, but they are not longer working there. And I wonder why. Well, that s quite an euphemistic observation of the reality that the school has lived since Dr. Georgia Ineichen became the principal of Rayville High School.

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.
