Sometimes you need to break the rules if you want to get the best education for your kids.

We recalculated the most recent school grades from the state of Louisiana to put more weight on student growth, which often matters more to families than basic test passage rates. Read more about why we did it and check out the updated grades for K-8 schools in Orleans Parish.
We focus on creating educational opportunity for students from all backgrounds – so we want to know which schools do a particularly good job with students who may not have all the advantages of their peers.
