My son started here in the 4th grade, we are so pleased he is going to return. Carter can't wait for school to start back, he loves the principal and all the teachers. He says its awesome, I couldn't wish for more a place he loves to go and learn. He's leap scores are great and he is proud of himself. Mr. Pate is a good christian man I'm proud to say Carter looks up to him.

My child went to pre-k here, and we had an awesome experience. The teachers were great. They were very understanding of our needs. This other rating is absolutely ridiculous, Boley Pre-k provides a service. They even allow out of zone kids to attend. Boley as a whole is like being part of a family. I have never seen a school more focused on the needs of my children. They are constantly rewarding these children for their grades, and honestly care! The teachers at boley are so devoted to helping children. In my opinion this school is the best kept secret in town.

If you're in this school district, move! In Pre-K, some kid cut my child's hair with scissors and didn't even know it happened. We found her hair in the corner of class THE NEXT DAY! Principal did nothing to reprimand his teachers. The following year, they try and put her on the wrong bus, among other things. Then they want to take no responsibility and blame, and tell us to lay off and let them run things there way. There way is no way. These people don't want you to know anything that goes on and when your child is hurt, they want to just blame the 4 year old kid and take no blame themselves. Terrible, Terrible school. No safety, no discipline.

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.
