The staff at Timmons is less than helpful when contacted about issues. Very poor in my opinion.

Being new to this community I did not even know where this school was located. After doing my research and speaking to a few of the staff members I felt comfortable enrolling my son into kindergarden here. After getting to know the faculty better, I have to say, that was a wonderful choice. These people are just as passionate for my son as I am. He comes home each day with a different story and is eager to go back. Thanks everyone for the wonderful experience you are giving my son.

My daughter and I both love this school. They are very safe and secure. The teachers, counselors, and all staff really care about the children and their education.

Our daughter is in kindergarden at Timmons and she has done very well. Her teacher exceeded our expectations in pushing our daugter to learn as much as she could. She excelled in math and reading bc her teacher was so good at pushing her to her potential. I also enjoyed being able to come to the school and eat lunch if I so chose. It is a school that really cares about students and their parents.

I cannot say enough about how great Timmons is! The administration/faculty are top-notch and genuinely care about each of the students. It's a small, but energetic school where the academic performance scores climb each year. We've recently been able to add full-time music and PE programs. Personally, my family is outgrowing our home, but we will not even consider moving until our youngest is out of Timmons. Due to the school's smaller size and rural location, we are limited as far as extracurricular activities, but I can honestly say the staff does its best to offer as many activities and incentives as possible. The entire faculty continuously goes the extra mile for the benefit of the children.

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.
