Claiborne is a wonderful school! We have been there three years and never had a complaint. The principal is wonderful, the teachers are caring, the school is modern and clean... great safety features in place. Plan for my youngest child to attend school here in a few years also!

I am an extremely happy parent with this school!! We moved here from South Texas and I would just like to say that Claiborne Elementary is one of the best schools ever. My daughter loves this school and every morning is excited about going. Mrs. Judy Hall is a very loving teacher that really shows interest in her students and cares for them deeply. I would like to thank her for being my daughters first stepping stone to the rest of her school years to come. Thank You Mrs. Hall for everything you have done!

I am a completely happy parent!!!! We moved from George Welch to Claiborne Elementary and I could never be happier. The teachers and staff are top notch and they truly care about our children. Mrs. Perkins and Mrs Gremillion are the best first grade teachers that I have ever encountered and my child absolutely loves going to school. The customer service from the staff is completely excellant and I look forward to the years to come. From: A Proud Parent

I love Claiborne Elementary School. We transfered from Kiroli and Claiborne is by far the best. Mrs. Hoogland was wonderful.

I have had 4 girls at claiborne over the last eight years and it is only getting better. Mr. Welch is an excellent principal and the teacher are top notch. When considering a move to a larger house, we looked 2 years until we found something suitable in the Claiborne area. I was willing to stay in a small house rather than leave Claiborne. Both parent involvement and teacher feedback have been great. -Jennifer Calhoun

I had heard this school was great until we enrolled there. I would not recommend this school to anyone.

My son has gone to Claiborne for four years. This is an excellent school with an extraordinary staff. Mr. Welch knows each child by name and most of the parents as well. The teachers are caring and attentive and always willing to help in any situation. This is our last year at Claiborne. We go to Middle school next year. I'm thankful that my child had the opportunity to go to this wonderful school and we will miss it greatly. Renee Todd

My son has gone to kindergarten, and now first grade at Claiborne. We moved from an excellent school district and I was worried he would not receive as good of an education as he would have in Texas. Now I believe he's getting better! The teachers and adminstrators of Claiborne are extremely hard-working, dedicated educators. I have been very impressed also with the safety procedures of the school.

Claiborne Elementary provides a special needs Pre-K program. This is extremely important for my daughter to get the help she needs towards head-start programs. The school and landscaping are well maintained, the principal and staff are always polite and willing to help, my little girl's teacher is awesome and came highly recommended, and all of the teaching aids really set my mind at ease. They have a great team working there. Anyone should consider this school strongly if moving to the area.

Claiborne is an awesome school with wonderful teachers. My daughters went until we moved last year. The teachers at Claiborne provided a tremendous balance between learning, discipline and nuturing. They were extremely prepared for their new school. A+

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.
