scott middle is a really good school when it comes down to teaching and letting us be teens and pre teens be teens... if i could go back to scott i would


Posted April 4, 2013

This has to be the worst school my child has ever had to attend... The teachers, office staff and principals leave much to be desired.. although they say they have no tolerance for bullying, that is not the case at all. We moved to this town with high hopes for a new future, sad that our child is not getting the education he deserves while struggling with bullying... in my opinion it is a horrible school and if you are fortunate to live in this town and have your child attend a different middle school, take full advantage of the opportunity. We were not offered a different choice. -Submitted by a very concerned parent

I do not recommend this school. Teachers, principals and office staff leave much to be desired. Unbelievable were the many things my daughter would come home and reported to me had happened at school.

Its ok though I miss all the events at my old school nothing happens here no feild trips or dances we have one coming up but a lot of other school have already had 3 or 4 and I feel the teachers treat the BAD kids better than the GOOD ones plus its unfair some things they fuss some kids about they don't fuss others and there isn't much school spirit and staff doesn't help increase it plus at Lunch it feels like I'm in bootcamp being rushed around so much

Scott Middle is a good school. I had a lot of problems this school year as I wanted to be real involved with my child but the teacher and counselor did not want me to be. I was told to stand back and not help her.

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.
