I love this school! We get the time and attention we need from the teachers and they are very encouraging and just trying to get us ready for the real world. This is an awesome school you learn discipline and everything their. I am a student by the way

Summerfield is a reasonably good school for a small community. The principal and most of the teachers are excellent. A few of the teachers need to retire or find a new vocation. One of the downfalls of the school is immense peer pressure. Another is almost everyone is kin somewhere down the line.

Many of the schools in Claiborne Parish would do well to try whatever is going on at Summerfield High School. As a frequent visitor to the school, I can tell you that the halls are resonably quiet during class changes, the students are very respectful, the administration positive. I think every school in the state should emulate what is going on at Summerfield School.

I graduated from there. The teachers are absolutely the best. My chemistry/physics teacher was my inspiration and he helped more than inside the walls of the school. I am proud of my school. -Class of 08

As an alumnus I am so proud that my child attends my alma mater; such a wonderful school. We moved into the district when she was in kindergarten and I have never regretted it. Small classes, christian teachers and staff, great test scores, GO, REBELS!!

I graduated from Summerfield almost 20 years ago, and I now have 2 nieces and one nephew that attend there. They love the shcool, and really, not much has changed since I was a student there. The teachers are great! I would highly recommend this school to anyone. This school has been going since the 40's, and it's still going strong!

Summerfield High School is the best school for kids of all ages. The teachers are great and the principal (Mr. Stevens) is the best there is. The faculty cares about the needs and concerns of all their students and their parents. I can say this. My son went to Homer Elementary for one year and that is the biggest mistake I ever made. The faculty there really do not care about their students or the parents. So if you want your child to go to a great school send him or her to Summerfield High Scool.

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.
