Y'all saying all that but every school has fights and all the schools have students that run towards the fight to see it and stop being rasis I love that school and I would go back to that school y'all jst don't like that they treat y'all kids there age if y'all dont like this school ow well take y'all kids out. And that is how I feel if you have a problem with that deal with it.

I can't stand this school!!! My son is in the 6th grade, and the only reason he goes here is because they don't offer special education in private schools! The teachers don't care, the office staff is rude, and not one person there has the interest of your child at heart. My son is failing EVERYTHING. He says that if he turns in his work, the other kids laugh at him because "nobody does their work." The students don't care and now my son has started to act like "them"!!! My son is WHITE - not GHETTO!!! THIS SCHOOL NEEDS TO BE SHUT DOWN FOR GOOD!!!

Well, this my second year here and I got to say I dont like this school. The office staff are very rude. If you go to the office to ask something, they give you attitude or yell at you. Also what I hate about this school is when there is a fight or there is about have a fight the students run towards it. When they do that they hurt the people that want to get away from the fight. The staff should do something about that. Oh, I forgot the students here are horrible, most are rude, and ghetto.

Last night my daughters and I attended the 6th grade transition night. The presentation short and sweet. Door prizes, refreshments, and school supplies were given out. Parents were able to purchase school sweatshirts, sign kids up for school programs, clubs, athletics. Special thanks to New Orleans Skaters Association for the backpacks and school supplies. My daughter was not happy about attending Livaudais to for the 2013-2014 school year. She wanted to attend Gretna Middle with her friends. The Transition Night won her over we're super excited about the 2013-2014 school year. GO LIONS !!!!

I am currently a student at Livaudais and I have been here for 3 years. I have not liked the shcool in the past but this year is different. This year the teachers are better, the new teachers are much more caring and want us to succeed. They work realy hard and are trying to get us to pass. My moms says they are fearless and I agree cuz sometimes we can be crazy. But I love my school. I know I am glad that the school got new teachers and the good old teachers are here and now its a great school. This year has been the best yet. We also do lots of fun stuff and everyone even the teachers get involved. we are like a family this year. GREAT SCHOOL....going to miss it alot!

I am currently a student at this school and it is not the best. I am an honors student and even i the honors class the school is not very well behaved. Teachers cannot control the students, but some teachers like Ms.Cotton, Louisiana History and World Geography, go above and beyond to make sure we meet all of the expectations and exceed them. However, in terms of English and Algebra it is not very good. At this point I am struggling to enterr Thomas Jefferson High School for Advanced Studies because I do not want to attend John Ehret and I want to succeed. However, I would not recommend this school for anybody.


Posted February 4, 2009

My child is an honor student there. He complains kids are always talking which makes it hard for him to do his work and says the teachers cannot discipline them well enough. Communication between parent and teacher is not very good when you dont know until interims or report cards that your child has an F in conduct, I would say that's a problem in one class with one teacher.

I have had 3 children go to this school. The first two completed their class and moved on to high school with no problems. The school went downhill when the previous principal Mr. Varette was taken by Orleans Parish School and Mr., McClain came in. I was not happy. When you go to the office for something, the office staff ignores you and walks past like you are not even there. My child was getting in trouble for things that I myself saw other kids doing in the vice-principals office with no action taken against the other students. When I brought this to the principal s attention he got very defensive and told me that we were not there to talk about other kids, we were there to talk about my kids. Well the other kids were getting away with the same thing my child was being suspended for. Reverse discrimination.

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.
