This is a wonderful school. I have two children still in elementary, the whole staff is great with the students. The children are getting a wonderful education.

Teacher-student ratio is great! The teachers contact parents often about any concerns. My kids love this school and know they are getting a good education.

Having come from a long line of teachers I can say that this school is one of the best I have ever seen. The principal, asst. principal and counselor are wonderful. It is nice to have children attending school where everyone knows you and your child. Mrs. Jennie runs the school as if she were the mother. I feel my children are cared for as if I were there. My daughter's reading scores have been skyrocketing since she started. They have a great reading and spelling program, computer lab and reading teacher. I say if a kid can read they can do anything. The faculty works as a whole to make sure that every child grows academically, mentally and physically. Also prayer is still alowed.

Teacher/Student ratio is high. Discipline is the key in this school with academics falling to second place. Mainstream students will do well here but children with any problems should go elsewhere.

My oldest child is now in Middle school, my other child is going into the 4th grade. I am completely satisfied with the school, the teachers, the leadership and the principal, and assistant principal, and our wonderful school counsler. The school has a wonderful computer lab program, science lab, and a beautiful new library. My children both love going to Springfield Elem.

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.
