Rougon is a great school, all my kids and grand-kids went or still go there. Mr Ted was wonderful, but Miss Pasty seems to be doing a great job as well. Some teachers,( won't call any names) do not seem to great at caring about the education of the students. This is just my personal opinion.

Rougon has some good teachers. My child loved her pre-k thru third grade teachers. Parental involvment is need at the school, but I believe that my child is getting a good education. Special thanks to Mrs. Julie Langlois, and Mrs. Yvette Mcgruder.

Rougon Elementary has some really good teachers in the elementary grades. My child has not yet experienced the junior high part. I believe they do a lot for the kids, unlike what was experienced in the 2003 review. I agree though that there are not enough 'extras' for the students. My biggest complaint is No P.E. for the elementary kids and no playground. How are kids supposed to sit still in class if they are not provided time at all to use their energy?!!! I also don't like that there is no soap in the bathroom. Othere than those things, I believe my child is getting a good education. I like the administration and the teachers, and the school still looks like it did many years ago. It is well kept!

I agree with the parent that stated that Rougon would benefit from more parental involvement, but Rougon does have a family math and science night. Also, this year, one of the third grade classes is takinf a field trip to a museum. Even though it's a slow start, it's a start. Rougon still qualifies as one of the best schools in the parish.

Rougon is one of the best schools in Pointe Coupee Parish. I truly recommend it & they have very good teachers, too.

Excellent teachers in regular ed. This school would greatly benefit from some parental involvement.

Rougon Elementary has the potential to be an exceptional school. However, the principal discourages parent involvement, including not allowing a PTA. There is no playground equipment, no music classes, no art classes, no foreign language classes. The only club is 4-H and only 4th through 6th graders are allowed to participate. There are no organized sports. There is no yearbook and no family day. At no time during the year are there any activities for the children and their parents such as Raising Reader, Math Night, Family Day. The only time we are invited during the year is Open House and the last Awards Day. Even though they give awards every 6 weeks the parents are not informed as to when the awards are to be given. We are only informed as to the last Awards Day at the end of the school year. My child received a decent education, but has missed out on so many opportunities simply because they are not offered. My biggest concern is that the principal will not allow a parent organization on campus. I believe there would be several parents interested and that the involvement of the parents could greatly improved the opportunities for our children.

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.
