After our child finished Sterlington Elementary with excellent grades and high LEAP scores, our child had a much different experience at Sterlington Middle. Compared to the elementary, the middle school is a "looser" type of operation. We ended up pulling our child from the middle school after the middle school principal yelled at and threatened to sue our child's pediatrician in response to a medical recommendation letter that the pediatrician sent to the school in an effort to have the school comply with our child's IEP accommodations. Our pediatrician was very upset over the principles actions and felt that the school was not a healthy environment for our child. The principle also acted in a very sophomoric and unprofessional manner to myself and my wife. Even after reporting these issues to parish school administration, that principle is still at the school. I do not recommend this school.

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.
