This school had a bad reputation when I was in middle school (way back in the 80's), so I wasn't thrilled that we were zoned for LeBlanc. However, the school has far exceeded by expectations. This is my son's third year and LeBlanc and I cannot give the school enough praise. Even more important is the fact that my son loves his school. He was given an opportunity to change schools and begged me not to make him. When I have had an issue, the principal was available for me to talk to and the problems where handled quickly and fairly. LOVE LeBlanc Middle School.

This school is a joke. They ridicule my child and call her a liar when she is not. Her older sister went there and caused problems so they have earmarked her as a problem child since day one. It doesn't matter how hard she tries, they are constantly writing her up and sending her to the office. When I go in to meet with the principal and assistant principal and ask my child her side of the story they get offensive and make it look like it is all my childs fault and call her a liar and argue with her like they are a child. The kids and the teachers at the school make her hate school and she used to love going to school. She was an honor roll student before she went here. I would NEVER recommend this school to anyone.

My children are students at LeBlanc School. They love this school. I like the fact that it is smaller than the other middle schools in town. The staff is very caring, and wonderful. They are recieving a great education. The school encourages and welcomes parent involment, they make me feel like a part of their family. We will sure miss this school when it is time to go to high school.

LeBlanc Middle School is an absolutely wonderful school. I have two children in 7th grade at LeBlance, and I have been impressed by the quality of teaching they receive. As a college student pursuing an education degree, I have had the pleasure of observing a few teachers there and couldn't ask for better, more dedicated people.

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.
