All of my kids attended Boudreaux since 2002. I have had no problems, except for the minor squabbles that come from young children. My son went through their Gifted & Talented program and is now in the 12th grade with an ACT of 31. Boudreaux may not be entirely responsible for this but they played a role. Parental involvement was low. A lot of this may have been due to the parents. I went on almost all of my kid's field trips and heard other students complain that their daddies were home but refused to go. The kindergarten teachers were the best and took time out for their students. Honestly, I wished my kids could have stayed through middle school years.

My son have been attending this school since kindergarden . This year they have started a new program for children having problem with their reading . I find that they do have a lot of helping program but lack of teaching . Also when my son was in his second grade his teacher was never there . Test paper were never send home like there were suppose to and i find teacher using cell phone while teaching is unappropriate . I know i cant complain because it a public school but everyone wondering why La have the poorest education . It not the student it the teacher they need to put on there A game

The school is ok, not alot of parent involvement mainly due to scheduling I think. I have 3 children that attend Boudreaux and the scheduling for meetings and events are usually when it's convenient for the teachers and faculty not the parents. The school is terrible for maintaining documentation handed in like Doctor's notes, letters for special circumstances for students (evaluations etc.) I think it's a good school overall but there is a great deal of room for improvement

I was not impressed what-so-ever with my sons kindergarten year. His teacher was pregnant, which is not a problem except she left at 7months pregnant and from then on till the end of the year he was stuck with a substitute teacher. As far as outdoor activitys go I was more then pleased, they had fieldtrips all the time, but playing outdoors doesnt teach my child to read and write. Both my husband and I feel a whole year of my sons schooling was lost.

The quality of academic programs are excellent. The programs are geared toward LEAP requirements and preparation. I am unware about music, art, sports and other extra curricular acitivies because these programs are rarely advertised. The level of parental involvement is low. I think this is due to an admininstration that can be viewed an uncaring and insensitive to the diversity of the the school population as evidence by how parents are address when it comes to the student and their behavior/academic progress. Additionally, I think the events or programs are not scheduled at a time conducive for parents to attend or participate.

Both of my daughters attended Boudreaux Elementary and are honor students.My oldest daughter has moved on to middle school and continues to maintain her honor status.Their academic expectations and teaching methods are by far the best.They expect the kids to give 100% and won't except anything less.This is wonderful because when the faculty shows genuine interest in our kids and and dedication beyond measure it gives the kids that extra boost they need to excel to their highest level.My experience and my kids have been wonderful.

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.
