Lafourche ranked 3rd best school district in the state


Lafourche Parish has one of the best school systems in the state.

The Louisiana State Department of Education’s recently released school scores shows Lafourche Parish finishing with a District Performance Score of 92.5, the third-best for any public school system in the state of Louisiana.

Lafourche's score is up from the 90.5 score it posted in 2018. They trailed only Zachary Community School District and Vermilion Parish.

Lafourche also received an "A-Grade" as a district - one of just a handful of districts in the state to receive that distinction.

Local schools receiving A-Grades for 2019 were Central Lafourche High School, Chackbay Elementary, North Larose Elementary, Lockport Lower Elementary, Lockport Upper Elementary, St. Charles Elementary, Sixth Ward Middle School, South Lafourche High School, Thibodaux High School, and Bayou Community Academy Charter School.
