The office help is rude and less than helpful. Some of the teachers are kind but most are just there for a paycheck. The teachers have no interest inn the well being of our children. My son has been bullied and mistreated and the teachers punished him. The reward systems are unfair and show favoritism. Children feel left out even when they try their hardest. Vinton Elementary is not the best school

The teachers are nice and loving, and the students seem to love the school.

The teachers are just considering their teaching as just a job now.....They don't care about their students. This is why I am moving my child next year to a texas school. The vinton schools will never improve just go down.

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.
