Arnett is a great school to attend. My oldest son, 15, now a freshman at WHS, & my now 8th grader, 13, both had an honor roll average at the end of the year. the teachers did an excellent job at making sure my boys were actually learning & understanding what they needed to know! the extracurricular activities also helped to show my boys that school can be so much more than just textbooks & lunchtime.

I Believe the school over all with extracurriculal activities is a 9. The problem is there isn't enough parents support with extr. activities and disciplining there own child when they act up at in class. My child misses out each time the teacher has to stop to correct a kid. S.P. Arnett is a wonderful school for my child.

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.
