Plaquemines schools are excellent. I moved to belle chasse from Jefferson parish to give my kids a better public education and I don’t regret it a bit. Teachers are well prepared and administrators are always there to help. If you kid has any special needs. All the schools here have great amount of resources to help.

I liked that they treated everyone equally. They showed everyone respect. Plaquemines try to make everyone happy. They make sure students are treated with respect.
Great schools and great teachers. The education is perfect and great for college preparation. I’ve always gone to school in this district and i wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. The only thing i would like to see changed is the way the schools handle situations like bullying and fighting. it’s a very sad thing to hear about in such a small parish. other than that the school is amazing
