My child is an 8th grader at West Ridge. She has attended this school since the 6th grade. West ridge has a great faculty and staff. My daughter is involved is several sports and choir. She has been challenged by her teachers to be the best and has been supported by those teachers. Her coaches, especially her soccer coach has been very helpful in guiding her sports experience. Her choir experience has been the best of any school in the state. Her choir teacher in our view is the best 'teacher' we've ever had for any subject! Thank you

I am a local Youth Minister and I am involved in the Fellowship of Christian Students program at West Ridge Middle. WOW!! What an amazing program. Any student who is a christian at this school is very bessed to have such a great FCS program. The faculty that is involved in this program do a tremendous job. It is one of the top FCS programs in our parish, in my opinion. Very impressive.

I have an 8th grade child who attends WRMS. I am very pleased with the way the teachers know the students by name and also office staff. Everyone seemd to go out of there way to make sure they know their children at school. Football program is fantastic. Hats off to WR staff.

I would like to express my appreciation to the teachers at this school who are excellent at what they do: teaching. My favorite teacher this year had to be Mrs. Hart, because she encouraged us to do our best. She was strict, but she helped me reach my FULL potential. The acedemic programs at this school are wonderful, as is the parent involvement. I would very openly reccomend this school to any parent concerned about the acedimic program. I have been to different schools all over northeast LA, and the teachers here tought the most thoroughly.

I think west ridg midle school is a good school for alot of children. there is alot of good teachers. there is programs for students that can teach students to read and write for the iowa and leap test. I as a parent think that i put my child in a good school for teachers can help students can understand the teachers. My child is in choir. she loves being in the choir.i hope my other child can pass the 5th grade so she can go to west ridge middle school. I like the way teachers help the students. I hope the teachers keep up the god job so students can feel confidence so they can pass the leap test and Iowa. i like the councerlers when they tell me how my child is doing at school.

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.
