I graduated from Slidell High over 35 years ago and Even then, although Gause road was a gravel road that would wash out with a good rain, Slidell High was one of the best schools in the state. Back then, the school was much smaller but the quality of the instructors and the level at which they taught was equal to or surpassed Private Schools. School spirit was always high and the camaraderie was always there.

Slidell high is like a big family where everybody knows everybody. As a former student there is not a day that goes by that i don't say i miss going to school. Every one that is empolyed there cares about there students. It is truly one of the best school in the parish.

Slidell High School could do with a good deal of revamping, some one needs to look into Physics, there is only one teacher for the course and I know teachers aren't supposed to be biest, or have favorites but some (maybe even most have some sort of feeling toward their students) don't really care for perticular students and it really makes it difficult to learn, ask questions, or get help from a teacher, when theres only one to turn to. Also, there most certainly has to be something wrong with a school that cares so much for its gym floor. I mean, I expect them to be in there worshiping it at night the way they act. Parking is terrable. Food is far frome healthy (someone really needs to hire a dietition). Some of the teachers shouldn't be teaching, but it is better than most schools in the State... hmmm...

I went to Slidell High my freshman year, and was forced to move away. Slidell High is the best school. It was so unified, and I had a great time when I went there. They provide so many activities to do. The activities include dances, extracurriculars and activities during school. I can honestly say that I miss that school.

Slidell High is the best school. Everyone has their own preference, but I'd choose Slidell High School. Thank you, Kimberli Vittur

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.
