As a parent of 2 children that attend this school, I feel my children receive a quality education. The teachers display a caring and welcoming atmosphere while maintaining discipline and a strong environment that is conducive to learning. My kids are challenged and the curriculum exceeds most districts in the state. In addition, this school had the HIGHEST DIBELS, iLeap and LEAP scores in the district.

The school atmosphere is pleasent, but they still need recess. The children need fresh air and excercise. They need to burn off some of the high energy instead of keeping the energy bottled up inside and disrupting class, then they will be able to come in class, settle down and work. The staff is really good, and they seem to care more about the students learning now than before. I was excited to see the science projects and the parent involvement with it. There were a few complaints, but they got busy and excited about doing them. Teachers, keep up the good work.

I think they need to bring back recess or some kind of break time for these students other than P.E.. All they do is work and no play. THey need to give their minds a break.

Dorseyville School is okay. There is not a lot of extracurricular activities at the school. They don't even have recess. The PTA is working on that right now. Everything is structured at the school. Parental involement is very low. We need parent trainings. The teachers need trainings also. They are limited with teaching skills if a child can't grasp information with the rest of the class. It's a lot that need improving.

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.
