My son attends this school and I feel that some of the teachers also constantly yell and scream at the kids. I heard it myself first hand during a vist to the school and couldn't believe my ears. Glad she wasn't my childs teacher.

My child has just been transferred from Barret Elementary to Summer Grove. She has always made pretty good grades, but her conduct was another problem. She's been at Summer Grove for only a week and I can already see a difference in her conduct. So far, so good. I'll just have to wait and see how she does for the rest of the year.

My child has attended this school for three years and it has gone from bad to worse. The teachers and staff constantly yell and scream at the students. It has been compared to a boot camp. My child is miserable and very unhappy.

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.
