Mission Statement / Programmatic Model:
St. Benedict the Moor School is a Catholic faith community comprised of students, parents, faculty, administrators, board members, and supporters. We are dedicated to meeting the needs of students whose skills, resources, and experiences may be discontinuous with the expectations of traditional schools. The school is committed to providing an innovative, alternative educational and social environment, within the context of the Catholic faith, to promote success for its students.
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.
Below we display school performance information. Due to COVID-19, It is important to note that this performance information reflects student performance data gathered during the 2018 school year. We encourage you to use all of the information available on this page and by contacting the school to learn more about how the school can meet your family’s needs.Letter Grade: T
