I attended this school as a child after moving across the state with my single mother. This school was a nightmare. I was ostracized and bullied relentlessly from my first day. My third grade teacher's response? Laughter. I'm not kidding. She used to laugh at me with the other kids. On a regular basis I would sit down with my lunch tray and take one or two bites before I was told to dump it and wait in the hall alone. The culture that runs rampant through the town of Blanchard is reflected in the attitudes of the children. Unless you were born and raised here- do NOT send your kids to this school. They will be beaten, bullied, abused and neglected.

It's a great school in a great community! I couldn't have asked for a better school for my children. This school is one of the main reasons I move to this area.

Blanchard Elementary School is one of the best schools in this area. The teachers, parents, and students work together to achieve the highest learning possible. I love this school and the people in the Blanchard community. The parents and grandparents work closely with the school. It is a great place to work - A five star school!

I am a grandparent and I think the school is fantastic. They try to involve the entire family and the community.

This is a great school. As a parent of a developmentaly challenged seven year old they have done an excellent job with him, giving him every chance and then some to help him in this environment.

I am very impressed with the leadership, teacher quality and gifted programs at Blanchard. Very active parent involvement and the central location of the school make this a very safe learning environment.

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.
