My son has gone to L Leo Judice for two years now. The teachers are very thorough and do a great job at teaching the kids. They work with parents so we can assist with our kids learning.

We have only been a part of this family for two years and already I couldn't pick a better place for our son! All the teachers know the kids by name and so well. Our son wakes up every morning ready to go to school, unlike he was with daycare. I hope by the time he reaches 5th grade the school will have expanded!

Theres not a thing as a parent that I can say that I dislike about this school. The faculty staff and parents are wonderful. My kid looks forward to school and all of the different activities that take place! Its a dream come true that he is in this school and we couldnt be more pleased with the willingness and helpfulness of everyone around us!

My school is L. Leo Judice. I love everything about this school. The teachers and staff are wonderful. My child is involved in the tutoring program that they offer and has helped alot. I love the fact that all the teachers know who the kids are and the reactions between students and faculty. I wish that it went up to 8th grade instead of 5th. There is no other school that will come close to L. Leo Judice. I have kids that are in the 5th grade and I really don't want to think about them going to another school. I would rate this school 5 stars and if i had to change something it would be them not having to transfer out of this school till they reach high school. I would recommend this school to anyone.

I have had one child go from k -5 here at l leo and now have my 2nd child attending. We love the school and didn't want our kids going anywhere else. The teschers and administrative staff are very involved and keep the parents in the loop.

My school is L. Leo Judice Elementary. I have 3 children enrolled in this school and I can not complain. The staff is very knowledge able about each student and they truly care about their students. I am certain we have the best Librarian ever; she really puts her heart and sould into what she is doing! There is no other school that comes close to this school and I wish it would go up to 12th grade.

It was a huge blessing for my child to have been chosen to attend the school of choice leo judice! I cannot thank his teachers enough for all they do with the students to make their learning experience so sucessful!

I wish we had enrolled our child here sooner than we did. His school year prior to enrolling at L. Leo was a wasted year in hindsight. The extra tutoring the school provides has been an incredible resource. The principal and teachers have worked so hard and have been so encouraging. They have also been amazingly accessible to help us address his school needs outside of the classroom.

All three of my kids have and still are attending this school. My daughter just finished 5th grade and has an 8th grade reading level. My other two boys are advanced reading as well. The librarian Mrs. Labarraque is awesome and the teachers are great. The principal is awesome. I also teach there as a substitute as well. Not only do i see things as a parent also as a teacher. The teachers are excellent and will do what they can for these students especially now that they are required to take the LEAP exam. There is onsight tutoring to help those children so that they can succeed. The curriculum is hands on and many of the kids love the science aspect of it. It is an awesome school. A little jewel in lafayette parish school system. Hopefully they see the same and take care of it.

As a person who has been in classrooms in seven of the area elementary schools, I want to let the populace know that L. Leo Judice is the top school in my eyes. Their Montessori training has decreased the yelling you see in many schools. The Montessori method shows increased civility and the teachers are consistantly at many optional inservice training seminars. These teachers want to and do make a difference in the lives of children. These teachers and Mrs. Landry are excited about new ways to teach. Check out this school and see what you may not see elsewhere---a principal visiting every classroom and actually talking to the kids!!!! She is the best!


Posted December 3, 2009

This is an excellent school. My son has been here from kindergarten til now 4th grade.. The principle Mrs. Landry, and the teachers and facilty really take care of the students.. I love this school and would recommend this school to everyone..

On more than one occasssion I have confronted Rosemary Landry about her action and her lack of action concerning my child. Each time I asked her to explain what she intentended to do, she transformed into a babbling, stuttering liar. Rosemary Landry will say anything to avoid addressing a problem. Rosemary Landry will lie to you with a smile, she is not a good principal, she just appears to be. The school's secretary, Joyce Casey is the opposite of couretous and professional. If you child is an advanced learner or above average they may become bored. There are no programs at L. Leo Judice to embrace the advanced learner which seems contrary considering the addition of 3rd,4th,5th grade.

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.
