Live Oak is a good school considering the other public elementary schools in the area..my daughter has been attending live oak since Pre-K and she is now moving on to 2nd grade. The teachers are nice and always helpful to guide her in the right direction. For once there is a principal who actually cares about her students and parents. Sometimes it is frustrating dealing with school issues but as a parent you learn to overcome those issues. I believe for the amount of children in the school they need some type of auditorium or bigger cafeteria to hold school functions in but I guess you have to make do with what you have. My daughter loves going to school here (outside of the children that has no discipline and respect for other people....but that issue starts at home)...GREAT SCHOOL...GREAT JOB Ms. Becnel !!!!!

this school is an okay school i went here when i was younger now my nephew does the teachers do not take time out to see how each student is doing on his or her own to set standards to help everyone get on the same path. The principle always talks about how she is doing her best when she really is not. The school can have better teachers that actually take their time out to see what are the kids strong points as well as weak points and the homework that they give are sometimes unnecessary. Having students do multiplication problems 6 times each just because one student does not know them is really not necessary.

This is an ok school. The principal is wonderful and truly cares for the children. The teachers try to teach the children, but the children are bad,,,bad,,, no respect and this allow some teachers no to really help the good kids. Basically, the good must always suffer for the bad. There is no soap in the childred's bathroom and this is not good. So, if you send your child here stay on what is going on and what your child is learning.

I love Live Oak Manor. Before Live Oak my daughter attended a private school. I was paying a lot of money for a good education at least that's what I thought! My daughter has attended this school for her 2nd year now and she loves it. The teachers always make time to talk to you, they don't push the kids to the side that are having a hard time, and the best part Live Oak actually has a Principal that cares about her students! I give Live Oak a 10.

This school deserves recognition on the fantastic job it does on educating our children. My child has been attending since pre-k , she is now in 2nd grade. All of the teachers we have gotten pushed their pupils to strive for execellance and the students that ran into accedemic problems were never left behind. This last year, we had a choir and the students took great pride in this activity. The only negative thing I could say is there is not enough time for physical activities.As a parent I believe in our school motto 'Execellance under the Oaks.'

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.
