East Feliciana Public Schools Top Louisiana for Growth on State Assessments: The latest state assessment results demonstrate that #HomegrownPride continues to be more than just a slogan in East Feliciana Public Schools. According to data released by the Louisiana Department of Education, East Feliciana Public Schools was one of the top districts in the state for one-year growth in student performance on LEAP 2025 state assessments. The percentage of students performing at Mastery and above on these assessments in East Feliciana Public Schools grew from 21% to 25%. This growth exceeded all other districts in the capital region and was only matched by three other districts statewide.
