My son will be in 5th this year and we are so happy that he is still at A. C. Steere, we have had nothing but wonderful experience at this school. My son is in the gifted class and I havetto say both of the gifted teachers are wonderful. If ever younneed to talk to themtthey are they. Ms Derrick is a wonderful principal (she has been principal of the year for good reason) Now I am so happy my daughter will be starting her school year at this amazing school. There is a reason why we are an A school. I would highly recommend having your child go to this school.

I love A.C. Steere! My children have had very positive experiences. My children come home everyday telling me about all new things they have learned. The Teachers & Staff are excellent. I would not want my children going anywhere else.

We have been very happy at this school. It is not without issues, but for the most part the teachers are great and the staff is wonderful. We are very glad to have attended this school.

I love this school. But, more importantly, my daughter loves this school! I was leary of 'public' schools and had our daughter in private school. We decided to try our neighborhood school. Our daughter loves to go to school, loves her teacher and has learned so much more in this year than private school. She was unhappy and dreaded going to school. She now wakes up and is ready to go! I am a firm believer that a child will excel in an enviroment they like even if it's not as fast paced and pushy as some private schools. Mrs. Booras is an excellent teacher and could never thank her enough for teaching and caring for my child. ACS is a very 'community friendly' school. Parents are involved in all areas from volunteering to help in the classrooms, going on field trips, classroom parties, and fundraising. Awesome school!

The qualities of academics at this school are extremely superior. All three of my children completed their elementary years at A C Steere and they were prepared for more than just middle school. The teachers are the best. The parents are involved. The kids love this place. There is a lot of tradition and history in this school. I wish our kids could have structure like this all the way thru 12th grade. Good luck to anyone trying to find anything better. You won't find it in private, magnet schools, or anywhere any state! A total neighborhood influence school with these kind of scores! WOW! Thanks to all the staff at Steer for helping provide my children a wonderful childhood experience.

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.
