As a former teacher at FWE, I can attest to the many positive things that are taking place at that school site. The teachers and staff members work efficiently at providing the best education possible to each and every student that enters the campus.

FWE is a school on the rise. With dedicated administrators and Positive Behavior System in place, this gives our sculpturing process a firm school-wide foundation. Now we must collaborate to refine our academic school-wide process that fits the needs of our fragile student body.

I have attended Fifth Ward and it was one of the worst experiences of my life. Some of the teachers there dont seem to teach like they should and they allow the students to do whatever they want, whenever they want. My teacher at this school gave me assignments that didnt make any sense and never seemed to explain them good enough. This resulted in me coming close to failing. This was true for other students in my class.

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.
