Jefferson Parish Public School

OUR VISION

Our vision is that JPPSS will have the best-educated generation that the parish has ever seen.
We are committed to raising academic achievement by raising the bar, putting students first, and making faster, wiser decisions that will help our district meet the needs of all students.

WE BELIEVE…

All children deserve a high-quality education that develops their unique talents and builds upon their individual strengths.
All children can learn, a belief confirmed by recent growth in student performance.
Children’s academic success should not be determined by their race or socio-economic background.
All children deserve excellent teachers who provide personalized instruction that will allow students to perform at a basic level or above
