My son attends this school, and I feel that it is a really good school. They always keep us informed through phone calls, flyers, and individually through emails and texts. On prep day, we got a list of all teachers emails and were encouraged to reach out when needed. I know other parents whose children go to neighboring school districts, who had concerns the first week of school, but did not have a specific email or way to get in touch w the teacher. The online system for payment is great and very convenient. The teachers do seem to pay individual attention to the student and are always responsive to emails.

My son attends this school, and my daughter did go here when she was younger, overall it is ok. I've not had the best experience some years with the staff (teachers) and when there was a complaint, I felt that there was nothing getting done about it. I am hopeful that this year will be a better year for my son.

I am a teacher in Ascension Parish and have the choice to send him here or another one in this district. I choose this school! Although my child is only in Kindergarten, he is loving every minute of school. Not a moment seems to be wasted on 'busy' activities and the students seem to always be engaged. He is learning at a very rapid rate and he has a teacher that truly cares!

My two sons started school here in 2002 after transferring from Delaware. The teachers and staff are wonderful and very supportive. Parents are encouraged to volunteer and participate in school activities. All classes in grades K thru 3 receive extra help with reading tutors working with the kids in small groups. They are committed to helping the kids succeed.

I am very pleased with St. Amant Primary. I attended this school and now my son has been there for 3 years. Great teachers, firm yet thorough dicipline & great support. I wouldn't send my son anywhere else.

From the moment we stepped into the hallway I knew I would love this school! The teachers and staff are friendly, yet firm. The students all seem to respect and love each one of them. I have never had a question left unanswered, and usually my questions are answered before I even get a chance to ask them.

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.
