The kids run this school, not administration. Teachers are trying to teach, most of the kids just don't behave. It needs a "changing of the guard."

I say that West Thibodaux Middle School is a really great school. It can have some issues every now and then, but overall it is great. The football team has so far gone undefeated 2 years in a row, andis the parish champs.The boys basketball team whent one. Also the girls track team went 3 years in a row undefeated, and got to be parish champs. Acedmically speaking, the teacher will push you to pass the Leap, and ILeap. The principle knows what they are doing. They try to make the school the best it can be. Fighting, and other things like that are everywhere in the world, it's just a life experience. There aren't alot of fights, maybe 2 or 3. I still think it's a wonderful school.

West Thibodaux Middle school isn't one of the best schools in Louisiana but however it isn't one of the worse. I would have to say this school doesn't punish students as well as they need to.I find that many student did so many bad things but they never got punished or even caught. The teachers rarely watch they language in front of the students. I would also have to say that the teaches at this school are very closed minded. West Thibodaux Middle School, math teachers cared and were really pushed us to passing the math part of the leap test.

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.
