Mission Statement / Programmatic Model:
To grow, in each and every one of our students, the intellect, character, and habits necessary to graduate from college and positively shape our community and our world.
Most New Orleans public schools are charter schools, public schools governed by non-profit boards. Each board is given a contract to operate their charter school for a number of years. When the contract is up for renewal, the Orleans Parish School Board or Louisiana Department of Education uses school performance to determine if the contract should be renewed. If the school hasn’t demonstrated acceptable performance, it may close at the end of the school year, or be taken over by a new non-profit board.Letter Grade: C
Renewal Year: Winter 2018-2019
