The staff is interested in accelerating the children at a level that qualifies per child.

My school is like one big family. They treat others the way they want to be treated. They care about your child and the children and their children when they are there.

SRE is one of the most structured schools in the state. They are academically sound, structurally prepared, and most important discipline enforcers. Theres no better school

SRE is a wonderful school. The teachers are very involved with the kids and I feel confident sending my little girl there everyday. I know I can count on the staff to keep my child intresed in learning while keeping her safe at the same time. I only wish they had daycare services for my baby.

As Louisiana public schools go,I've been impressed with SRE in the three years my childs attended. I've attended many public schools through out the country having been a military dependent. This one is on par with the best i've attended.

This school is by far the best in the district and maybe the state. Teachers and all of the staff put children first. The administrative staff is knowledgeable and fair in dealing with our children. The curriculum is very challenging for my child and meets the needs of all children. I love this school and it's family atmosphere. When I walk through the door, I feel like I am at home with my family. Keep up the great work St. Rose.

I have never had a problem in the 5 years that my son has attended St. Rose. I love the school and the staff.

Posted October 7, 2004

This school is inconsistant with policy and extremely unorganized. I cannot tell you the problems I have had with teachers who do not know what is going on. The staff/teachers cater to the majority, which is for the most part low income. And I have experience a small form of racism in the front office. I would complain but the principal would do nothing. I am looking to move to find better schools.

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.
