If you’re considering moving to Louisiana and have children, you may want to check out Ascension Public Schools.
Last year, Ascension Public Schools earned an A Grade from the state’s Department of Education for the sixth time in a row. This school district maintained its place as the fourth best school system in the state. The district had an overall score of 110.4 last school year. They actually improved their overall school from the prior year, despite dealing with the flood.
School district scores can be found online at LouisianaBelieves.com. This year, a tougher scoring system has been approved by the Louisiana Board of Elementary and Secondary Education. Schools with a grade of an A may drop in letter grade because of the new scoring system, but the superintendent pointed out that the district staff and students are more than a letter grade anyway. He stressed how amazing it was to watch the kids stay the course during the chaos from the flood.
When broken down by schools within the district, 15 of the district’s 27 schools individually earned A grades. Eight earned B grades.
The superintendent noted:
“While we continue to hold as a high priority the academic success of our students, we also recognize the importance of supporting the personal and social growth of each child. That is why we also prioritize experiences and activities that allow students to become great teammates, peer leaders, service-oriented and committed to lifelong learning. We know that the real measure of our schools is the success of our students in their post-secondary lives. So, while we will always pursue excellence in academic performance, the collective work of Ascension’s students, their families, the community and our employees is more than just a letter grade.”
Ascension Public schools has over 2,800 employees and serves 22,500 students.
