This is one of the best schools. I feel very lucky to have my child attend such a well rounded place. The teachers really care about all their kids. Look at the school report card. That says it all!

I couldn't be happier with South Live Oak. The teachers are wonderful, and they care about the students, and being in touch with the parents. I am so thankful for my daughter's teachers. They have made this year a pleasant experience for my family.

Geared towards standardized test score successes and not much else. Do not have a good program in place for high achiever intelligent students not in Gifted Program. The rapid growth has watered down the number of quality educators per student.

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.
