This is the best school! I wouldn't send my children anywhere else!!! The teachers are excellent! Parents are always welcome!

Sarepta can't do it all. The primary education is most important and they are doing great at that.

You invest in band instruments and your child is learning and then no band. They have a French teacher but no band. I do love this school but do not understand some of their choices. the school or at least the office really does tend to 'blow off' parents. Some of the teachers really involve themselves with the students. This is still a worthwhile school. Academically they excel.

Sarepta has no sports worth playing because they just don't pull through. They have poor grades and teachers. And no parents ever get involved.

This school has gone downhill with the leadership of the present Principal.Teachers,the ones I have dealt with,for the most part are good teachers.The school is lacking some elective courses I feel are important.I don't see enough parental involvement but I feel that with a lot of families with both parents working thats hard to do and the school making you feel like they don't want you involved is the problem here.

I have 2 children in school at Sarepta, grades 5th & 9th (2003/2004) Sarepta is an wonderful small town school with a family feel. It offers oportunities for all students ,no matter what thier interest, both academicly & socially.

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.
